    Everytime that i log off of my account and/or turn off my computer, all of my saved bookmarks and favorites disappear. Has this happened with anyone else and what was the solution?

    We know that. That's why I thought you might have accidentally logged on to the guest account.

    I checked - private browsing not on. I downloaded Google Chrome and set up bookmarks on it. Restarted computer and all Bookmarks were still there. Must be something in Safari. Can I delete Safari and re-download? Would that make sense?
