Recent list not clear after deleting history

Just finished the Windows 10 1903 feature release upgrade. Firefox allows me to browse just fine, there is only a slight problem that is annoying as I like to keep browser cache/history clear.

When I right-click to launch FF, the list of Recent searches in the menu is forever long. I've tried the Remove Item From List, but the list never gets any shorter. I used the normal procedure for Clear History and Cookies/Data in Privacy & Settings. Clearing Everything from everywhere that I know of.

However, the Recent list never gets any shorter. I even tried deleting the cache2 folder with FF closed, but no luck.

I've attached an image of the list in hopes someone can offer any advice. Thanks a bunch in advance.

Cheers

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

Good, no problems there. What about about:preferences#privacy ?
