Under "History," a specific website with 6 line entries would not respond to the delete button. Is this a dangerous website?

I delete websites I visit in "History" line by line, and I save the ones I find valuable for viewing in the future. Last week I visited a new website and checked out a few articles. A few days later I was deleting that day's line items I did not want to revisit. This particular website would not let me delete any of it's line items, no matter what. It was Just this website. Never have I encountered this problem. I had to go into Firefox and delete this particular website under "Forget this Site." Any answer as to why?

That is how I delete individual websites from history, what steps were you taking to delete the site entry?

I usually just highlight websites under a specific day of "history" and hit the delete button on my keyboard. Gone. When that didn't work for the one website, I tried right clicking that line, and a variety of other things. The specific website just would not go away. I just did not want to delete 7 days of history at one swipe of the delete key. Finally I went out to Firefox's 'Getting Started,' and in the left column was 'Privacy & Security Settings.' There is a section under Privacy & Security Settings called Delete Browsing Search and Download History. I read those items to see if there was something I was missing. One was called "How do I remove a single website from my history?" Followed instructions and just that website popped up. Highlighted those items from that site and deleted. Gone. Still do not know why the website would not delete in the first place. Makes a paranoid more paranoid about websites watching you.

As cor-el mentioned, this will happen when the history database in your profile becomes corrupt ^ those steps should fix it next time it happens.
