Safari 16.4.1

Patches a WebKit security vulnerability in Monterey and Big Sur. (Free, various sizes, macOS 11+)

After updating to 16.4.1 I can’t clear history anymore without quitting and restarting Safari.

What happens when you try?


I had 20 items in history and when I clicked on clear history, nothing was cleared. I quit Safari and started it up again and there were now only 5 items in history. When I clicked on clear history a second time everything was cleared.

I went to a few sites before writing this email and clicking on clear history removed all the items. Safari is not consistent in the way it clears history now…for me. In preferences I have remove history manually selected.
