Why am I unable to view my SEARCH HISTORY, despite my privacy settings being correct?

This answer https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/clear-recent-searches-search-bar suggests clicking in the search input field and using the down arrow to see a list of your search history. When I do this there is no list. I do not have Private Browsing selected in my privacy settings and I have checked the option for Remember Search and Form history.

This is not a question about browsing history, I'm only concerned with SEARCH history - I want to be able to see a list of words or phrases that I have typed into the search bar.

Type a letter in the search field to see your search history that starts with that letter. There is no way to view the entire cache of search history otherwise.

You can try to inspect the searchbar-history via this extension
