Why is Firefox still storing user data when I've done "Forget about this site"?

I selectively delete data on sites by doing Show All History, finding a row for the site I want to remove, and then doing Right Click -> "Forget About This Site". I do this rather than globally forget all data because there are a few site logins I want to retain.

I just did this with every row in the History - This Month tab. It's now empty.

However, when I type a single letter (e.g. "a") into the search box a huge list of URLs appears, many of them from this month. They include a number of sites, like my on-line banking, that I previously believed I had erased all trace of.

1) Why are these URLs not shown in my history except when a search term is entered?

2) Why does "Forget About This Site" not clear EVERYTHING for the site in question?

For info, I'm running FF 61.01.1 for Linux Mint.

[suggestion] Allow autofocus on searchbar

Hey, could you please add an entry in "about:config" or point me out a trick to auto-focus the searchbar when opening a new window/tab ? This would really help me. Thanks… (funda kabanzi)
