    That's the problem with using Samsung's stock Internet browser--I don't believe you can sync or backup the bookmarks from that browser.

    You can save bookmarks on the Internet browser to your Samsung account with the Bookmarks setting checked in Internet - Menu - Settings, and checking the Internet Sync option in Accounts - Samsung and syncing with master Sync on; though I don't remember if this worked in practice when I did a reset.

    I also cannot remember how I imported and saved bookmarks from my pc a few times, but it's doable.

    It's a question of checking your login and password for a Samsung account, or resetting it, before you reset as the device will first ask you to log in to Samsung before Google on restarting.

    Yes I was thinking afterwards I may have a different Internet (I have version 1.5.28 in Applications Manager) but hopefully you will have similar.

    And you are welcome! Enjoy the forums and come back for other options.

    I caught your other post but it was late for me last night.
    I thought it was a typo, and I don't mean to ridicule, but golly there ARE pepper forums and lots of them.

    I don't know if you got a reply but the clipboard in Android is normally temporary and stores the last clip until turned off - however Samsung has a trick up it's sleeve I learned from another great lady of these forums.

    Open Internet !, long press the address entry field, select clipboard and a thumbnail of the 20 most recent clips appear. Touch one to copy elsewhere directly.

    The Clipper app is recommended though. The free version saves 20 clips long term.
