    Hello you all
    My first post here.
    I have a problem with safari. Sometimes when I open safari, there appears an old safari browser for a short moment. It is just shown for a half second or so, before the new browser is opening, and it shows some stuff that Ive been searching for weeks ago. even tho Ive tried to remove history in settings, it keeps coming up.

    Anyone knows how to remove that?

    Thanks

    Is your iPad up to date? The latest software is 8.2 for the iPad 4.

    In addition to clearing history and website data, force close Safari:
    Double tap the Home button to show the multitask bar, slide the image above the Safari app icon towards the top of the screen.

    Resetting your device might help as well:
    Press and hold Home and Power button until you see the Apple logo. Let go of both buttons. Your device will power up on it's own.
    This reset will not remove data or reset settings back to default. It's just rebooting the software on your device and might help removing glitches you'd experience otherwise.

    We had the next update to iOS 8.3 in the meantime in April.

    If none of my suggestions helped, try restoring your device. Use iTunes. Here are the instructions:
    https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201252
    This will also update your iPad to the latest software.

    After restoring, reset your device again, using Home and Power button.
