"Greetings all. I have tried to delete the bookmarks in Safari on my iPhone 5S running iOS 8.4, but have had trouble. I consider myself an intermediate iPhone user, so I'm sure I'm missing something simple. I have tried double tapping the edit button, double tapping the delete button on the bookmark I want to erase, and then double tapping the confirmation that I want to delete that item. However, after I double tap the done button, the bookmark is still there. For what it's worth, I generally leave Safari open all the time on my iPhone so I can access it whenever. Now that I am using my iPhone for mobile browsing when away from work, I've got some bookmarks that were added initially when I started with the iPhone that I am ready to get rid of. Help."
