Delete single entries from Firefox history

misspelled-address-firefox.gifEven if you’re an expert typist, sometimes you end up entering misspelled usernames and web addresses. There’s nothing wrong with it, but the problem is that Firefox includes this invalid entry in its autocomplete list, displaying it again every time you write the same username or web address and therefore causing even more mistakes.

If you’d like to get rid of this misspelled entry in Firefox without losing your entire web history, here’s the trick: begin entering the first few letters of that given web address. As soon as the wrong option appears on Firefox dropdown menu, select it with the cursor keys and then press Shift+Del. Voilà! Now you can go ahead and delete all those websites you don’t want anyone to discover that you actually visited them…
