How do I empty its contents? I tried clearing the history and quitting Safari, all the sites that I have browsed are still on the Top Sites.

Safari menu, reset Safari. Put a check in the boxes that refer to top sites and web sites.

Further to Chscag's sage advice, you can also click Bookmarks > Clear History, when you will be confronted with this box:



Ticking that box will also wipe your Top Sites.

There might be more to it than that. When I get back home in a couple of days, I can post the instructions to purge your Mac of all the image files that Top Sites has accumulated. It works for Leopard, and I hope for your OS also. I'm not sure if clearing the History will do this.

To completely disable Top Sites, go to Safari > Preferences > General

New windows open with: Top Sites
Change it to something else. Obviously, you can do the same for New Tabs.

(You'll also see Top Sites in the Show All Bookmarks window. Drag that up, don't stop when it first stops moving. It will be reduced to a thin bar.)

Now delete the Image Cache. Choose Safari > Reset Safari... and select Remove All Webpage Preview Images. Click Reset. Now go to YourUserName/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari and select the Webpage Previews folder. Press Cmd-I and click Locked. Now it won't accumulate a jpeg and png of every web page you visit. I saved over 500MB of disk space!

Menu and then reset Safari. Also when you're cleaning the history try cleaning and the top sites.
