    Every game I've ever searched now comes up in a giant list when I click my search bar to search for something new.
    Is there any way to clear this out?
    Maybe I'm just missing it.
    Thanks.

    Im curious too, cant have the wife see ive searched "Funhouse" a thousand times in the history bar....

    Yeah and Big Bang Bar looks pretty suspicious too.

    This seems less like a "bug" and more like either a support request or a feature request.

    Looking closer, it seems to be a feature request.

    Mods: Would someone mind terribly moving this into the feature request forum?

    I hear there's a web site with a service that will clear your history.. try www.AshleyMadison.com

    I just click on the one to remove and hit the delete button. Works for me on Firefox.

    Quoted from Rock914:

    Did you try deleting cookies?

    This isn't cookie based, I checked. Fresh browser "private" window, log in, and the login history is there in the search box.

    And for those not familiar with the AshleyMadison site, and looking at it for the first time because of this thread..

    You will need to clear the autofill/autocomplete form data.

    Instructions vary depending upon which browser you're using.

    It's not a site feature. It's data/settings within your personal browser.

    ForceFlow is right. Work laptop behaved different than my personal laptops (plural).
    Sorry for the misdirection.

    Thanks ForceFlow.
    My tablet was set up different than my phone.
    It's cleared out now.

    I did a quick check on how this works in Chrome browser. When the search suggestions open, you can move between them with your arrow buttons. Now, while on an entry you want to remove, you can hit shift-delete and the entry will be removed. So to remove all, you could simply go:

    down arrow
    shift-delete
    down arrow
    shift-delete
    down arrow
    ... etc

    But it's a browser thing, not something Pinside "manages".

    That also works.It is a setting on my tablet and not Pinside.
    Thanks Robin.
