Could someone carry out this test for me please?

1. Type UK's number one property website for properties for sale and to rent into the Safari URL bar and click Enter
2. In the Find A Property In box please type in "Great Yarmouth, Norfolk". Enter
3. Click Safari > Reset Safari > tick all boxes and click Reset
4. Log back into rightmove.co.uk and in the box type in the letter "G"

If the first option in the dropdown menu shows "Great Yarmouth, Nofolk" then Safari is still retaining cookies somewhere on the iMac.

Please can someone confirm that Reset Safari doesn't remove ALL cookies and how I can properly clean the cache without doing a full reinstall?

Very frustrating! Apple Mac seem to leave a massive footprint all over the computer everytime you do anything which is no good for security or sensitive browsing.

Thanks

That list is being populated by the web site.

That website is populating the list in that box by remembering what your IP address just searched for.

That list is not being saved on your computer.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Stop watching porn.

But on a more serious note... It does the same thing for me. But on chrome it gets cleared. I am investigating further.

A great many websites do this to remember your current searches and get you back where you want to go faster.
Not the website watching the IP it has to do with the browser. Chrome clears it.

Maybe so - Don't use Chrome. Neither FF nor Safari will clear it, but Opera does.
