Sometimes I'll go back into "yesterday" just because I think "maybe I'm crazy and I saw that yesterday" but it's not there, either.

This is while Safari is running fine (no crashes), and you aren't using Private Browsing part of the time, right? Just checking the obvious things.

Sometimes I get messed up because I have viewed the same thing again. So if I looked at 5 kids jackets on craigslist yesterday, and then revisited one today, that one is shown as today, and not with the other 4 listed yesterday. So it's only listed once.

Another problem might be for sites that hide your links in one way or another. So a place like might have a generic URL even if you pull up multiple tickers. Or something like a cached page by google, where the actual page you are interested in is within a frame on the page.

Other than those, or not remembering the exact name, I haven't had a problem with Safari putting a page into my History. I have had times where I have trouble finding it, so I go to History->Show All History, and then use the Search textbox up near the top. That lets you search by parts of the URL or title, and often that helps me out. I do that both for History, and for bookmarks if I am having trouble finding them.

Hope that helps. Good luck
