how to remove unwanted entries from Address bar drop dowm list

  • Hallo

    The first line of the ABDDL has an x at the rightmost position
    If I click on it, the x disappears but the entry is still here.
    How to get rid of this (and all other lines) starting with the same letters?

    -> I have the german Version of opera.

  • This sounds like a bug. As a workaround, you could try looking for these entries in History and delete them from there (or delete all History Ctrl+Shift+Del).

    You could also try updating to the latest version (70 just came out) and/or delete cache (again Ctrl+Shift+Del, delete everything except passwords, Time range: All time).

    If all the above doesn't resolve it, try the following:

    • Disable add-ons

    • Reinstall Opera

  • It is a bug, update to the latest opera version to get rid of it. My friend also having same issue after updating the opera version and the issue resolved itself.

    Thanks for Reply.
    My Version: 70.0.3728.95.
    Install had no effect.

  • @joe2009 What do you mean by "the entry is still there?

  • @leocg
    I deleted all of history.
    I installed the latest version of opera. My one and only extension is the ad-blocker.
    I cleared the cache.
    1 if I type a few chars of gmx. then ..
    2 a dropdown menu appears eith a lot of unwanted, deleteable addresses starting with gmx.
    3 at the right side an x appears
    i4 f I click on it it disappears,
    but the next time startig with 1 .... all entries appear again.
    It seems, deleting entries with the mouse actions has no effect. I think the only possibility is to delete the dataset where the entries are stored. But I don't know what datset it is.

  • @joe2009 The icon on the left say that they are coming from where? they may be just suggestions from the search engine.
