How do I clear Navigation bar? Under Tools "clear private date" does not bring up a dialog box.
I'm trying to clear the navigation bar. Where I type in the web address "www.somethingsomething.com"... The list under there is too long. Using the Tools pull down menu and selecting "clear private data" does nothing. No box pops up. Under options, I've done everything to clear out the history. Everything remains. Any help? Thanks.

If "Tools > Clear Private Data..." is missing the three dots (ellipsis) and you do not get the Clear Private Data window to make choices then make sure that Tools > Options > Privacy : Private Data > Settings > "Ask me before clearing private data" has a check-mark.
Ok, I put a check in the box "Ask me before clearing private data"... now a box does pop up... Items checked are "browsing history, cache cookies, offline website data and authenticated sessions". Item not checked "saved passwords". Items listed but in light gray and unable to put a check "download history, saved form & search history." I hit the "clear private data now" option, nothing happens, except that box goes away. I click on the little down arrow on the navigation bar, and all the things are still there. I'm beyond dumbfounded why! Help please. Thank you.
