Is there a way to remove an individual entry from the location bar menu rather than clearing the whole thing? (SeaMonkey browser)

This is in Firefox but Seamonky should be the same.

Just put your pointer on the entry and press the Delete key.

Maybe? put your pointer on the entry then press the Shift+Delete keys at the same time.
No luck with that, either. I probably need to find the file that logs the typed-in URL's which are displayed in the drop-down list under the location bar. I'm thinking I could just delete it from there. It's probably somewhere deep in the Mozilla or Application Data folder. But.... WHERE???????????
:confused:

I had the same problem. The trick is to NOT click on the drop-down box and use the mouse to highlight the entry to delete - that didn't work.

Instead, with the cursor in the location bar (you can type a partial match to get to your entry quicker), press the down arrow key to start the autocomplete, then use the up/down arrow keys to select the entry. Now, pressing shift-delete will delete the highlighed entry.
BTW, this worked on a laptop with only the one 'delete' key i.e. I have no equivalent to the numeric keypad delete key.

Hope this helps someone.
