Hope some of you experts can solve this annoying problem i've had for the last 6 months. All the sites visited EVER! Still appear in the drop-down list on the address bar. I'm using windows vista home premium & the firefox browser. I've delete them manually from the list but they reappear immediately. Using 'tool' & 'options' makes no difference either. I've downloaded 'hide unvisited add-on' but that makes no difference either.
Cookies & saved passwords & other stuff delete. It's just the drop-down list on the address bar that won't go away. Only a few of the list have a star next to them & i gather that these are permanent? & are not the ones in question. However, all my previous favorites originally from Internet Explorer are all to be found under the 'bookmark' bar, along with all the rest. There seems nowhere else to keep them & not purposely bookmarked at all. Besides, firefox imported most of the list itself from IE & placed them all there.
6 months ago when i chose to delete private data the list used to clear apart from the starred ones but now they all remain!. I've uninstalled firefox & reinstalled it but the problem remained. (But i didn't tick the box that said "forget about your personal settings & favorites" (or something like that), which seemed unecessary? Any ideas? Cheers.
Oh forgot to mention, no matter how many days i choose to save history, the history folder always remains empty. Btw i've no viruses, trojan's or spyware on PC.
