Deleting some autocomplete dropdown suggestions

  • Hi,
    I started to use Opera back again after a few years. I normally delete history, cache and cookies. However, astonishingly, when I type certain letters the autocomplete function kicks in, giving suggestions in my address bar. And magically it shows links I browsed at least 11 or 12 years ago, if not more. In some case, as you can imagine, this can be awkward. I'm the only one to use my computer, but sh*t happens. Inexplicably your help page doesn't help at all on this issue.
    And quite frankly, this is a hell of a nuisance for a browser promoting itself as the bastion of privacy. How is it possible that by deleting the entire history, cache and cookies these links keep popping up?
    Thank you for your help.
