Yesterday, my bookmarks disappeared suddenly from my iPad Safari browser. I have been using iPad from last 4 to 5 years and this thing happened with me for the first time. It was an entirely new experience for me and I was not able to get access to my favorite sites and bookmarked links because of the bug with my iPad. After a bit of research, I realized that losing iPad bookmarks is a common problem. I saw over the internet that many iPad users had reported that they had lost their Safari bookmarks for no reason. -- Alan
