Can't right-click on entry in history list

Posted

I've been used to removing a history entry (in the drop-down list from the down-arrow to the right of the URL) by right-clicking on it, which would highlight it, then pressing "Delete". But recently, right-clicking on an entry does nothing; it does not become highlighted and pressing Delete doesn't delete it. I'm now at FF v 68.

Thanks for that! I do find that to highlight the entry, I need to scroll down the list with an arrow key (slow). "Moving the mouse" doesn't highlight it enough that Shift-Delete works. I used to be able to use the mouse, right-clicking on the entry, and that would highlight it; but not now.
