cleared browser history and cookies, history is empty but when i search in it is shows some websites that persist https://imgur.com/a/H8nBmEk and the website shows in autocomplete search suggestions (I know I can technically disable history suggestions in settings but I want them, they are useful)obviously what I showed in the video is pretty much not harmful but I also have this problem with an adult site which can be annoying when someone uses your phone to search stuff. so, any way to fix that problem? currently checked that on 166.0a1 nightly, also latest beta probably also a problem in regular Firefox

If you're experiencing an issue where Firefox for Android is not deleting your browsing history as expected, you can try the following troubleshooting steps:

Clear browsing history manually: Open Firefox on your Android device, tap the menu button (three vertical dots), and select "History." Then, tap "Clear browsing history" and confirm the action. This should clear your browsing history within the Firefox app.

Clear app cache and data: Sometimes, clearing the app cache and data can resolve issues with data persistence. Go to your device's Settings, find the Apps or Application Manager section, locate Firefox in the list of installed apps, and tap on it. From there, you can select the options to clear the app cache and data. Note that clearing app data will remove your bookmarks, saved logins, and other settings, so make sure to back up any important data before doing so.
