Deleting browsing history of a specific site?

Is there any practical way to delete history for a specific site? I can remove cookies of a site manually, but deleting history is not that easy. Also i know if you press delete on address bar when links appeared, those links would be deleted. But there are hundreds of them in history, so that's not a practical way.

From now I think that the only solution is manually delete the entries in the address bar menu. If you have some knowledge of SQL, SQLite, and where/how firefox stores its data you know another tool for doing that. The latter is a very low-level tool, so if you do some mistakes you can corrupt your browser installation.

If you don't want to store any information about one site (cookies, history, etc.) you can browse to this site in "Private Browsing" mode, from the tools menu. In this mode no informations are stored on disk until you came back in normal mode.

You can right-click that website in the History sidebar and use "Forget About This Site".

Be aware that "Forget About This Site" does more then deleting the history.
Firefox will forget (remove) everything from the selected site and that includes passwords, cookies, saved form data, exceptions (images, cookies, pop-ups) as well as bookmarks and history and cache items.
