Remove / Delete an Autocomplete Form Entry in Firefox

Have you ever gone searching for Christmas presents on a shared computer only to find that your searches in google are being saved for all to see?

Well you can actually remove a search entry easily if you are using the Firefox browser.

1. Click on the form field and press the down arrow key to display all the saved entries. You may type the first few letters of the entry to limit the number of entries displayed.
2. Use the down arrow key or the mouse pointer to highlight the entry you wish to delete.
3. Press Shift+Delete. The entry will be removed.

You may repeat the process for any number of entries for a particular form field.

Brilliant! No more giving away your present ideas before the big day.
