Thanks for your time. When I log in to a certain procurement website associated with my employer, I use the following URL:
Once I have done so, subsequent typing in the URL field autocompletes to the shorter host:
The only problem is that when I go to this shorter host, I am "Forbidden \n You don't have permission to access this resource." The website does not seem to allow anyone to go here.
I am on a holy quest to purge this unwanted autocomplete suggestion, but nothing seems to work. It is not appearing because of a bookmark or search history- I can delete places.sqlite to start fresh but the problem resurrects as soon as I first successfully visit the desired URL: https://solutions.sciquest.com/apps/Router/Login?OrgName=MIT.
When I use SQLite to look at places.sqlite, I don't find the shortened URL anywhere in "moz_places" but I do find it in "moz_origins". It appears there with a much greater "frecency" than the lengthier URL for some reason. ID #10 has "solutions.sciquest.com/apps/Router/Login?OrgName=MIT" with frecency 2100, and ID #11 has "solutions.sciquest.com" with frecency 16100.
If I try to delete #11, I'm not able to for reasons likely related to my lack of understanding/proficiency with SQL databases. The DB Browser I am using says "Error deleting record, foreign key constraint failed". But my suspicion would be that even if I did delete it, it would be re-generated whenever I login successfully. What I am able to do is edit the "frecency" field. When I change it to zero, and write the database, the option goes away. I fear that frecency will simply be reset next time I close and reopen however.
Thanks in advance! Dave
