remove single entry with typo from history
as I was browsing, I entered www.b into the address bar and pressed return since I'm used to autocomplete and I wanted to go to bing, the search engine I started using when google went big brother. Unfortunately when I hit return, I also bumped the backslash key. Now when I try to go to bing, autocomplete shows www.b
I've gone into history to try to selectively remove the entry, but havent found it. I don't want to delete my entire history.
Stating the version of Opera that you are using can really help others decide what advice to offer you to help sort your problem out, if possible.
In any version, he should be able to find it in the history and remove it there. In Opera 12.x, you probably would want to remove it from your typed-in history as well (separate from your visited history) - you do that by using the keyboard to highlight it in the dropdown, then press Del.
Shift + delete should delete the suggestion, but it's seems to be broken on mac. I logged a bug internally, follow our blog should be fixed some time soon.
I have the same issues on the Opera Beta version, on Windows. Shift+Delete doesn't seem to delete the entries.
