Can't remove bookmarks from the pulldown window

Posted

Ever since the most recent Windows build I've been unable to remove links from the pulldown url window. In the past I could just right click on a link and there would be a menu of options, once of which was to remove the URL. On reopening the pulldown menu, a new link would take its place. Now, nothing. No option to delete links. How do I do this? I have searched and searched to no avail.

Pulldown URL window? Would it be possible for a screenshot or anything of that nature? I'm having a hard time understanding what you're trying to describe.

If you mean a list that drops from the address bar, you can use the down arrow key to highlight the entry you want to remove and then press Shift+Delete on the keyboard.

That did it. Man why did they change how it worked?

Note that you can only remove history items permanently this way. Bookmarked items that have a star can't be removed this way and will return. You would have to disable bookmarks showing in the list.

The location bar drop-down list can show history items, bookmarked pages, pages opened in tabs, and search suggestions. You can set what suggestions show when you enter an URL in the location/address bar bar.

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security
    Address Bar: When using the location bar, suggest:
    History
    Bookmarks
    Open tabs
