Pressing Shift + Delete to remove an address bar result is extremely hard to discover. Firefox should add a button that lets users get rid of unwanted autocomplete matches. Chromium browsers have this feature.
Why not just delete, that works for the top section, why not the bottom?
Please can someone help me in find out if I can add or remove websites in the drop down search bar. Below is a photo of what i am talking about. I have been trying to figure it out for years i could not find an answer. Thank you!
(Note: similar ideas have been merged into this thread)
The similar thing was added in FF109 to the address bar, so now I have some hope they'll implement this one day as well 😄
This idea is in development and will be available as an experiment shortly. Feel free to keep the conversation going here and stay tuned for updates 😃
I agree 100% the ability to remove unwanted, invalid or obsolete addresses from the autocomplete list is something that Thunderbird should have. I can't make shift+delete work, if it does work at all, on the new Thunderbird beta. It is a feature that should be added to the beta or else introduced in the next revision. Personally, it is something that annoys me every day, because Thunderbird has invented a spurious email for my wife that it puts at the top of the list, and I have to scroll down to find one that actually works. Other mail apps (Outlook, Google) have a delete button. If this is an underlying issue with the Mozilla platform, and better dealt with there, fine so long as someone actually deals with it.
Shift+Delete doesn't even work for me!
Why does Mozilla even include this result in their help menu if the browser won't even acknowledge it?!?
This isn't even the first time I've tried this! On my old computer, I couldn't do this either!
I think it was after a certain update a few years ago, but I don't remember which one it was.
So, newsflash, @mozilla! Either tell us flat out that we're not allowed to delete saved autocompletes in the address bar anymore, or FIND A **bleep**ING WAY TO LET US DO JUST THAT AGAIN!
...AND LET ME GET RID OF THE AMAZON SEARCH OPTION IN THE ADDRESS BAR TOO, FOR **bleep**'S SAKE!
