I use the drop-down list as a source of all of my favorite websites that I visit on a regular basis (about 30 or so). If I need to search the web I will use the Google search bar on the upper right of the browser--but my drop-down list has only "x"-number of websites, which I have chosen & can add to when or if I find another favorite to visit regularly.
Firefox 2 (TWO) has it exactly like I want it, but for some reason, I noticed that Firefox 3 has all sorts of websites in the drop-down list that I have visited (up to 14 I believe & no more) & several of them aren't even my favorites! They just happen to be sites that I may have either StumbleUpon'd or visited & I have no idea how they got there...& worse yet, I am unable to clear them out of the drop-down list, even when I go into Tools ---> Options ---> Privacy ---> Always Clear My Private Data !
I don't want my drop-down list to show the 1st 14 sites that I have visited. I want to use it ONLY as a list that I make up myself so I can get to my favorites quickly, & nothing more. That's why I went back to Firefox 2 & am hesitant to re-download Firefox 3 until it lets me do what I want it to do.
If anyone on this thread could tell me where I'm going wrong, I would sincerely appreciate it if you could help me. Thanx in advance!
Haven’t tried FF-3 yet. But for FF-2: Display the drop-down menu, highlight which URL you want to be rid of (don’t click, just highlight), then “delete” and POOF! Gone!
Anyone know if it works in FF-3??
