MacBook pro 2014, OSX El Capitan 10.11.6 There're two history entries that I can't delete (as seen in pics). Whether I chose to clear history of all time or manually delete entries, it just won't work. At first there's only a Feb 8 history entry stuck there which I didn't pay much attention but yesterday another Feb 28 shows up and really annoys me. I googled for a while but can't get any clue. I'm reluctant to resort to resetting because of data loss(saved passwords .etc). Please help! enter image description here

After some googling I figured it out:

  1. quit Safari;

  2. open terminal and type:

    cd ~/Library/Safari

    rm History.db History.db-lock

  3. open Safari again and they're gone.
