Removing URL from history
I have tried all three methods mentioned on this webpage for removing one URL but it doesn't work: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-address-bar-suggestions
Particularly, when I try the 'Clear all items for a single site' method, the URL I want to remove from the browser's history does not show up in the search box in the History Library. However, when I start typing the URL in the address bar, the browser still suggests that URL.
What should I do to remove this URL so that it does not show up suggestions on the address bar?

That could be the form filler built into Firefox. Click in the field, enter a character or two and STOP ! Using the arrow keys, highlight an unwanted entry. Then press Shift + Delete
Repeat as needed.
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/address-bar-autocomplete-firefox Current Firefox: Menu → Options → Search → scroll down to Search Suggestions section and select or deselect the options you wish.
Older versions: Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address box. At the bottom of the page, find Location or Address box.
Is there a special icon attached to the favicon of that suggestion ?
- bookmarks have a star attached
- items pinned on the new tab page have a pin attached
If you currently do not have a history item then you can open this page to create new history to be able to use "Forget About This Site".
