Delete Individual Firefox Form Entries


In Internet Explorer 7 there is the ability to delete an individual entry from saved form entries. You press the down cursor button to get the list and when the one you don't want is highlighted you press delete and it is gone. This is great for fixing typos and such. Is there a way to get Firefox to do this?

I've searched for the same thing, haven't found. I'd like it too, but then again, it's all the same -- if it's that bad having some nasty search strings in Google's picture search, better just clean them all not that big a deal to type them once again in.

I have found the solution to this. When the entry is highlighted press Shift+Delete and the entry will be deleted.
