I am having a problem clearing my history. In "Tools", I go to Clear Recent History and click Clear Now and the History still remains. How do I clear the history? Thanks for your help.

I've tried all of the processes to clear the History recommended. I've gone to "History" and tried to clear it through there. I've tried to delete the history by highlighting the site and pushing delete on the key board, nothing is working. Please help, I like to delete history after every session. Thanks in advance for your help.
