Step 2: Edit The Bookmark

Tap the Bookmarks button at the bottom of the screen.

You now need to modify the bookmark URL. Tap the URL field (it begins with "http:"), then remove all the text before the word "javascript". Position the cursor right before the "j" as shown below, then delete till the beginning of the line.
