  • I am using Bing as my search engine. When I clear and Turn Off search history the next time I power on my computer the search history is back On. To remedy this problem Bing suggests I enable JavaScript and cookies in my browser. I don't know how to do this. Can anybody help me with this? Thank you.

  • @byff-arlington Those things are enabled by default on a browser.

    What search history is that? It's something you can see when you access your Bing profile?

  • @byff-arlington Bing keeps your custom settings in a saved cookie, as do several other common search engines. Turning off their search history is considered a custom setting. If the Bing cookie isn't getting preserved across browser sessions, the setting won't be preserved. Bing also employs JavaScripting on its site pages.

    Are you using an extension that either blocks cookies or erases them upon exiting Opera? Also, do you have any kind of script-blocking extension installed?
