I am really amazed to see that how can the developers miss a very important and conspicuous feature that should've been there already on Firefox for Android.

There is absolutely no option to search a specific entry within the search history on phone. Obviously that should be there.

I have attached a screenshot for the same. Please have a look.

Hi

The option is managed in a different way. If you have history searching enabled in the search settings, when you search from the address bar in Firefox for Android, results from your history will be presented as results.

I hope that this helps.

It was like something that was present infront of my eyes all the time, but I failed to notice.

The reply only partially addresses this issue. I use this "Search in browsing history" -feature on desktop to pick out specific history entries in order to delete just those ones from history. This cannot be done on Android and I can't see the reason why this feature is crippled on mobile version. You absolutely should implement this feature that gives users the ability to cherry pick and delete individual history entries to future versions.
