I am trying to clear search history in the address bar because it makes it very difficult to get the autocompleted pages I use regulary

I found the following article that says to:

click the down arrow, press the down button to select and highlight the entry, then press delete to delete it.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-awesome-bar-suggestions#w_clearing-a-single-item-from-the-address-bar-history

But this straight up does not work.

I can highlight and delete and as soon as i start typing again, it refills the search history results i just deleted.

I've cleared all search history everywhere I can find and still the address bar is offering search results from past searches

How can I get rid of them?! Thank you.
