clearing history does not work anymore, I select the option to clear everything. In order to clear history I have to go under show all history and delete each individual item

Make sure you have the time range set to "Everything"

Also make sure that Browsing History is selected in the Details in Delete browsing, search and download history on Firefox.

even if websites are not bookmarks the 'clear history' function does not stop the browser bar from autocompleting websites I have been to.

Clear recent history seems to have no effect regardless of which options I check

I have the latest version. I have History only selected. When I manually select Clear Recent History, it deletes some items but not everything. I just performed Clear Recent History and 8 sites are still showing up. None of them are in my Bookmarks and most of them I haven't visited in weeks. It is a real pain finding the sites that I would like to select when all this garbage fills up the list.
