I'd like to know how to clear your search history i.e. search keywords in your "search" fields.

I do NOT mean clearing my BROWSING HISTORY, but certain/all searches on the "search" fields.

Some sites seems to save some of the words, some sites do no not. I don't know how it works, really.

I remember being able just to point the word off the list and hit "delete" and it was gone. Doesn't work anymore these days.

I can't go back more than a month on my history, nor extend it past one month if I have stuff I want to look up that I have looked for. And if I accidently right click forget about this site since its right below delete page, I tend to lose an entire thing instead of one specific thing. Both need to be fixed with an undo feature.

I use Piriform CCleaner.

The most recent update ignored the settings to exclude Firefox and cleared my History.

I do have a backup but it isn't recent as I'd like.

I did have a look at the places.sqlite file with an editor - interestingly all the history is still there. So how is it "enabled / disabled" as far as Firefox is concerned?

I did a fair amount of Googling but can't see an explanation.

Your input would be appreciated! Adb
