Firefox trick of the Day – Deleting History

14 04 2009

Ever have that link show up in your history list that you just don’t want to have flash up in the middle of a demo with a client? You know, the one about fuzzy bunnys and jello? Right, that one. You don’t have to clear your entire browsing history just to avoid embarrassment…
In Firefox, when you start typing something in the address bar, and the history appears, use the arrow keys to highlight the offending history entry, and just hit Delete – voila! No more bunny-related distractions. At least for now.
Firefox’s URL history is pretty nifty, and I like how it will ‘bubble up’ frequently used URL’s toward the top, but I also like that you have detailed control over what gets displayed there.
