I have tried all three methods mentioned on this webpage for removing one URL but it doesn't work: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-address-bar-suggestions

Particularly, when I try the 'Clear all items for a single site' method, the URL I want to remove from the browser's history does not show up in the search box in the History Library. However, when I start typing the URL in the address bar, the browser still suggests that URL.

What should I do to remove this URL so that it does not show up suggestions on the address bar?

That could be the form filler built into Firefox. Click in the field, enter a character or two and STOP ! Using the arrow keys, highlight an unwanted entry. Then press Shift + Delete

Repeat as needed.

Is there a special icon attached to the favicon of that suggestion ?

  • bookmarks have a star attached
  • items pinned on the new tab page have a pin attached

If you currently do not have a history item then you can open this page to create new history to be able to use "Forget About This Site".
