How to delete a certain url from the url bar / inform firefox to forget it

Posted

I've looked and looked and there seems to be no solution (none working anyway).

In my case: I'm starting to type 'mailgun'. Now, I've got the old maildun control panel url saved, which is no longer valid (404). So I highlight the one in question (moving there with the arrows keys) and hit delete. Next time it's there, again. I've tried shift-delete, same. Ctrl-delete; same.

I do NOT want to clear the cache, the page is not in the bookmarks (well, no longer there; but it was - maybe it's a clue).

I'm lost as to what to do.

p.s. this isn't the only url that refuses to disappear.

Thanks for any help!

Thanks, but I do not want to wipe any amount of history, the aim was to delete a single site. Used to be as simple as hit 'del' (logical solution, too).

Funnily enough, sometimes it works. This time it didn't. However, the next day I started firefox up, and the site was back in bookmarks (I've deleted it the previous day and double- triple-checked it, even restarted firefox).

I've removed it again, and then I could finally get rid of it.

But now all my cached sites are gone! This is a major annoyance.

Firefox you buggy beauty!
