Auto-complete in the location-bar in firefox 3 is great but can get annoying if you dont clear the history out once in a while. I cant find the option to do this. Even though I clear everythingin my "clear private data" window, the history in the location bar still comes up ! Anyone know how to comepeltely delete this ?

thanks

Still on 2.0.0.12 here, but it's an option in the privacy tab.
It not there now? If so, that's a terrible omission :-(

See the box area i've highlighted in red on mine?
I think you've have to UNTICK the remember what i have entered in forms and search bar.
Try that

thanks but that stops logging all together. I am just looking to delete the history in the location bar.

i have found out if results come up that you dont want, press ****+delete and they disappear. But theres no way to delete them in whole.

Well could you do this before?

This feature wasnt part of firefox 2 etc
#9
Right click on the address bar and choose delete. Or you can use the drop down and highlight the ones you want to delete.

doesnt work.

Ok, i'm confused. Has this feature you want, ever been in Firefox? If so, what version please. What i suggested does work for what you want to an extent but i think what you want just doesn't exist, at least not anymore.

I believe if you tick "Browsing History" and then click the "Clear Private Data Now" button you will get the result you want. That won't stop it logging, and it'll clear whenever you click the "Clear Now" button on the previous screen until you change those settings again. :)
