    Hi guys.

    I've been noticing since I first bought the phone that from time to time some bookmarks appear on the homescreen. I really have no idea why this happens.

    I've checked it out and the bookmarks that appear are just the same as in "Top sites". I never visit those websites, they were in that folder since the begginning.

    I've attached a screenshot so that you can see what I am talking about.

    The unwanted bookmarks are from MakeMyTrip onwards.

    It's very annoying. If someone can help me out with any solution I would really appreciate it.

    Hi there!

    I'm having exactly the same problem. Every once and then I delete those bookmarks, but after some time they would reappear. Are there any known solutions yet?

    The funny thing is I just resign from MIUI beta team because of adware in cleaner app.
    But I still have unwanted icon and news feed in default browser 060915 xiaomi.eu rom.
    If you check official global rom zip file cust/in (india) you will see there is an extra zip called aplication_cache.zip which I think it's the cause of unwanted bookmark.( bacause xiomi.eu rom default cust.prob is IN )
    So I change cust.prob region from IN to other.
    Hope there is no more adware coming again.

    To be honest, it would be nice to remove this in basic build. It is pointless to have that sort of behavior :)
    P.S. I also saw this type of returning bookmarks...

    I think bookmarks are pushed by official depending on your locale.
    I did change cust.prob and it really work s. But you need to do it every time you flash new rom. Hope Mod remove it from rom too.
