How to delete url's from Mozilla FireFox browser memory?


Hi there. My environment is Ubuntu 14.04. I want to know how I can clear the memory from all url's I've used and that now reside in the browser memory. In other words I want to delete history. Thanks.

What errors or issues are you seeing when deleting the history? Is there something you're trying to retain that prevents you from deleting the history in the normal way?

Is it possible that, even after clearing the history, the entries shown from the drop-down arrow in the location bar are all in your bookmarks? Somewhere along the line FF stopped removing those entries.

Thank you. I just figured it all out. No issues, no errors, just unwanted links keep popping up.
