Remove Wrong Firefox Auto-suggest text February 23, 2007Posted by Carthik in snippets, ubuntu.
I found the solution to another long standing gripe I had with Firefox – if you mistype a url once in the url bar, the ‘fox remembers it for a long long time. So I’d type “ubintu” once, and then, each time I type “ubu”, firefox autocompletes the url with “ubintu….” which is very annoying.
Lifehacker tells me that I delete those annoying typos using Shift+Delete. So the next time the bugger pops up, I will delete ubintu.wordpress.com! It also works for form text entry fields.
I am sure more than a few readers would be as glad as I was when I read about this :)
