This is no big, but is there a way to delete that first search so it stays deleted?   I did not save the search!   It's just sort of a funny feeling to see that first search pop up every time.

Here are a couple of possibilities:

If you are using a newer browser like FF 3 or IE 7 or 8, they have an auto-completion feature that tries to figure out what page you want to go to based on what you type. For example, I just type "pap" in my browser bar and I see links for "PaperBackSwap :: My Account", "PaperBackSwap :: Discussion Forums" and "PaperBackSwap My Lists - Wish List". If I want to start at my Wish List page, I press the down arrow until that choice is highlighted and then I press the enter key. These browsers try to learn from your past activity, so they'll bring the most frequently visited page at a site up to the top of the list. It sounds like you may have a search results page that's remembered and that's the one getting selected for you. Have a look at what else is in the list of URLs and see if you can choose a better starting page. You can also delete the saved URL by using the down arrow key and then pressing the delete key once it's highlighted. If you can't find the page you want in your list, you can just type out "paperbackswap.com" in the address bar and press the enter key. That will take you to the home page.

If you are using a bookmark to arrive at PBS, then you have probably bookmarked the search results page by mistake. You can just visit the page you want to start with and create a new bookmark there.
