Is there a way to clear the remembered form fill ins?
I have a lot of forms and searches that have auto fill suggestions, and unfortunately over the years I have a lot of errors (such as Ir as a suggestion searching for Iron Man). I would like to clear all this data and start fresh. Is there any way to do this?
