    Force close Safari and reset your iPad.

    To force close:
    Double tap the Home button to reveal the multitask bar. Swipe the thumbnail (picture) above the Safari app icon towards the top of the screen.

    Reset (you won't lose data or settings):
    Press and hold Home and Power button until the Apple logo appears. Release both and let the iPad power up on it's own.

    I found these instructions in Apple support.

    1. The issue is with syncing Safari with the iCloud
    2. Open iTunes on your computer
    3. Plug device into computer for sync
    4. DESELECT Safari under iCloud on device
    5. On iTunes, go to Info tab
    6. Scroll down to Other
    7. Select Sync Safari Bookmarks ( This option is not available if Safari is ON on your device. This will work wether or not the bookmarks are on your computer or not... Mine magically came back from the ether)
    8. Select Apply and begin sync

    These instructions are from September 2012 and may not work with iOS 7.

    Let us know if this works.
