As you can see by the attached star, this suggestion is coming from a bookmark and you need to remove this bookmark or disable bookmarks for suggestion shown in the location bar drop-down list.

Note that "Forget About This Site" doesn't work for bookmarks, so that explains why this failed for you.

That could be the form filler built into Firefox. Click in the field, enter a character or two and STOP ! Using the arrow keys, highlight an unwanted entry. Then press Shift + Delete

Repeat as needed.
