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?

Thank you FredMcD, I didn't realize that would clear forms history as well. Too close to see the forest for the trees I guess lol. That did the trick.

If you want to keep forms history going forward, the following add-on lets you edit selectively:
