    In your browser's options, you'll find " Clear Browsing Data ". Check what you want to delete and press clear now.

    But in my opinion, I suggest wiping your device and reloading the OS. But try to clear your browsing data first

    Check All In One Guide - How To Upgrade Your Device - with Pictures & Videos for how to upgrade your device OS.
    Also Check our Downloads Center for the latest Official OS for your Bold 9900.

    You asked how to restore your 9900 to factory settings, so that is the information I provided you with. If your having issue with your browser than that is a separate problem. Since its your browser that is giving you issue please be specific on whats going on. Is it simply slow downloading speeds?

    You can use the Reset to Factory Defaults on Wipe IT policy rule to require that a BlackBerry® device reset to the factory default settings when the BlackBerry device receives the Delete all device data and disable device IT administration command over the wireless network. When you change the value for the IT policy rule to Yes and send the IT administration command to the BlackBerry device, the BlackBerry device resets to the factory default settings and permanently deletes all device data. If the BlackBerry device is running BlackBerry® Device Software versions 5.0 and later, the BlackBerry device also deletes the IT policy and removes third-party applications.
    If the BlackBerry device is running BlackBerry Device Software version 5.0 and later and you change the value for the IT policy rule to Yes, the BlackBerry device resets to factory default settings when you send the IT administration command, when a user permanently deletes BlackBerry device data, or when the user exceeds the maximum number of password attempts.

    Regards,
    Kumar

    how to restore bb to factory settings?

    n the General Settings screen, press the menu button and select "Wipe Handheld" from the popup menu.
    Confirm that you want to erase all data on the Blackberry, and be sure to select the option to include any third party applications that you might have installed

    1. Press and hold the alt key, the right aA key (shift/caps lock) and the del key at the same time.
    2. The BlackBerry smartphone will shut down, and the keys can now be released.
    3. When the BlackBerry smartphone has restarted the reset is complete.
