If you're also have the difficulty to do so, then you can follow the step listed below:
  1. Open Browser app.
  2. If you're in incognito mode, tap the Thumbnails of active browser windows icon.
  3. Here you should see the plus (+) icon and the Incognito icon.
  4. Find the incognito tab that's open, then tap the Red minus button on the top right of the tab to get back to the regular mode.
  5. Tap the Bookmark icon .
  6. You can choose to tap either the History or Saved pages.
