This could be you are syncing history. Check the settings.
Sync is not active, until today I didn't even have a firefox account. And even, how can I sync my search history to a phone I dont even own?
Hmm... It seems that somehow the 2 devices are connected somehow. Try to find out if you have the same account on the 2 devices If you are having the problem for one site:
Click the Library button 57 library icon , click History and then click the Show All History bar at the bottom to open the Library window.
Search for the website you want to remove from your history by typing its name in the Search History field in the top-right corner and then pressing Enter.
Then, in the search results, right-click on the site you want to remove, and select Forget About This Site.
All history items (browsing and download history, cookies, cache, active logins, passwords, saved form data, exceptions for cookies, images, pop-ups) for that site will be removed.

If you are signed in the the same Google account then it is possible that the Google history feature is causing this. You can check the Google settings page about how to disable this history feature.
