How does the location bar remember my browsing history if I've deleted all cookies etc
If firefox is set to "never remember history" and I've deleted all recent history and used CCleaner and BleachBit, then begin browsing for a day, with the Location Bar set to "history and bookmarks," at the end of the day how does the location bar remember my browsing history?

If you've visited a page that has been bookmarked then that page becomes an history item.
URLs that you've typed or pasted in the location bar may also show.
Entries in the location bar drop down list with a yellow (blue on Mac) star at the right end are bookmarks and those entries can't be removed from the location bar drop down list with the Delete key.
You can remove such a bookmarked item that shows in the list if you open that url in a tab and click the yellow star in the location bar.
This will open the "Edit This Bookmark" dialog and you can click the Remove button to remove the bookmark if you want to remove such a bookmarked entry.
