Since my Bionic got ICS, the Clear all option no longer works to empty my browser history. What gives ???

Odd, still works on mine.  Try going into Manage Apps, Browser, and click on Clear data and see if that helps

Clear Data or Clear Cache in Manage Apps ?  I tried Clear Cache and it did not work. I go back to the browser and press back - back - back, and it goes to each previous web page.

That worked, as it wiped out all Browser info. But it wiped out my Bookmarks, and I am not very happy about that.

That didnt fix the problem. I went to 4 different sites and then to browser, settings, privacy security, clear all. I opened home page, google, and started pressing back and each time it still went to the 4 previous sites. So I am back where I started, gained nothing and lost my bookmarks.

I am so so sorry about your bookmarks, especially since you still have the original issue.  I'm afraid I have no other suggestions, but please accept my sincere apology over the loss of your bookmarks.

Open your browser, then go to the top right and click the button with 3 little lines on it, that will minimize and show all open browser windows, close all of em. Then, open your browser up, hit the menu button bottom left, settings, privacy & security, clear all. That should do it.

If not, then download history eraser from the play store.
