URL can't be removed from address bar, site is not in history

Veröffentlicht

I found many similar issues here and over the net, but none seem to work for my case.

I have this URL in my address bar suggestions, that is not in history. I used "Forget about this site" to remove it from history. I've also cleared my cached data from Privacy options (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-clear-firefox-cache)

I don't think killing "places.sqlite" will help, since it's not contained in `moz_places` table:


sqlite> SELECT * FROM moz_places WHERE url LIKE '%xkcd.org%';

sqlite>


So this website is actually a typo for xkcd.com web-comics.

I've tried https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-address-bar-suggestions. This does not work since the suggestion is not on first page. I have to type in 'x' to see this wrong suggestion. Shitf-Delete does not work, since it only deletes the autocompleted string from suggested URL.

I use Mozilla account to sync, so maybe that may cause it -- other profile connected to account?

Hi ilvez, I assume it's not caused by an erroneous bookmark.

Since you are familiar with SQLite browsing tools, would you mind checking another table -- this one stores frecency scores for top level host names:

SELECT * FROM 'moz_origins' WHERE host like '%xkcd%'

I'm not sure how a host name gets into that table if it doesn't load. ??

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 Delete (Mac=Shift Delete). Repeat as needed.

I tried your solution, but it's not obviously it. It's address bar, not HTML form. When I use Delete in this case, it acts like delete -- deletes selected text (which is the leftover part of suggestion).

If you have a windows pc-

1) Click in the field, enter a character or two and STOP !

2)Using the arrow keys, highlight an unwanted entry (FredMcD was right until this point).

3) Then press SHIFT+ DELETE, not only the delete key.

4)Repeat as needed.

What do you get if you disable auto-fill for the location bar via the about:config page?

  • browser.urlbar.autoFill = false

Yes. That was it. Thank you very much jscher2000. I should have taken deeper look into schema myself.

Commands that I launched (for whomever needs solution, do not blindly copypaste these, since you have to know your faulty entry ID before you launch `delete from` command): sqlite> select * from moz_origins where host like '%xkcd%'; 12|http://|xkcd.org|855789 429|https://|xkcd.com|138281 756|https://|www.xkcd.com|240 3928|https://|imgs.xkcd.com|100 4120|https://|blog.xkcd.com|200 sqlite> delete from moz_origins where id = 12;

Thanks for all other suggestions as well. I didn't try them, since jscher2000 answer solved it for me.
