I want to delete a URL in my address bar. I have followed the instructions on a Mozilla support page but that does not work.
These are the instructions I have followed:
Clearing a single item from the address bar history

To clear a single item in the address bar history, click the drop-down arrow in the address bar.

show history address bar 57

Press the ↓ down arrow key or move the mouse, to highlight the entry to delete.

To clear the highlighted item, hold down the Shift key and press Delete on your keyboard.

Nothing happens when I follow these instructions.
Can anyone help me?
Thanks very much.

Hi richsprt, that description probably needs an update since the drop-down arrow no longer exists in Firefox 76, at least as far as I can tell. (I submitted a proposed revision, so if it looks different in coming days, you're not going crazy, it changed.)

So when does the unwanted item appear in the drop-down? For example, while you are entering text, as a match from history, or when you first click in the bar before you've started entering a search or address?

If it's when you first click in the bar, Firefox usually will show you your first eight Top Sites from the Firefox Home / new tab page. To modify that list, you can open the Firefox Home / new tab page and edit there. More info in this article: Customize the New Tab page.

Does that let you get rid of the unwanted item(s)?
