    My partner as a 1st Generation iPad 16GB, the firmware is stock and the latest: 4.3.3.

    The problem is the browser history (Sometimes google search history too) will delete itself, this is sporadic it can happen twice in as many days or once a week.

    Is this something that's known about or is it just somebody manually deleting the history?

    Thanks for the help here and sorry if this is posted somewhere else on this forum (I did do a search first).

    The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-

    Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 or 4.3 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
    Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Interesting that it's not a reported fault.

    I will get her to do the above and see how we get on :)

    Is there a set period of time to IOS 4.3.3 - Safari keeps history for?

    Ok the history last upto late last night early this morning since I last posted.

    We closed all applications daily aswell as power the iPad off and back on again but still all the history was deleted.

    The google search history however was not.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    Is this a reported fault?

    Any other comments would be most welcome.
