Everyday, the first time I start Safari, if I go to the history tab, I get the following message :

safari

How can I stop Safari prompting this message and completely disable the webpages preview?

Perhaps you could wipe out the preferences in ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist and/or clear out the ~/Library/Safari folders and re-open Safari. I'd backup your bookmarks before trying the latter.

Have you tried setting the preferences to "Empty Page"?

Yes, both were already set to Empty. –  Studer Feb 18 '10 at 19:32

I'm now a Mac pro but I searched a bit and found this:

Hope this will help!

That's what I did sometimes ago, but I still have this annoying message … –  Studer Feb 18 '10 at 0:42

Try clicking "Add previews now" to prevent the dialog from showing up in the future, and THEN follow the steps mentioned in @r0ca's link—making sure Safari is not running as you're doing so, since it'd likely overwrite those preferences when it quits.
