Re: I cant delete my form and search history?

Have you taken a look at Awesome Bar - Search your Firefox bookmarks, history and tabs from the address bar and Control whether Firefox automatically fills in forms?

If those don't work, you might have some corrupted files. I believe form history is saved in the formhistory.sqlite. See Recovering important data from an old profile for more information.

Also: Firefox doesn't save web form entries

Re: I cant delete my form and search history?

It is possible that there is a problem with the file that stores the "Saved Form" data. Rename or delete formhistory.sqlite (plus formhistory.sqlite-journal and formhistory.sqlite.corrupt and formhistory.dat, if they exist) in the Profile Folder in case there is a problem with the file that stores the "Saved Form" data. This will remove all saved form data, so you may want to rename formhistory.sqlite to formhistory.sqlite.sav or move the file to another folder in case you need to recover some saved data.
