Is there a way to delete a specific site visited from the browsing history without needing to clear it completely?

  • Yes, I do. And I use Firefox Sync

You can only delete specific visited pages while going through the complete browser's history.

I asked because you can't actually delete any visit while they are filtered out by a search query. I think this should be allowed as a feature because if you had a big history you would need to spend an unimaginable amount of time to delete a very old entry while browsing it completely.


The file places.sqlite stores history information. I suppose that if you manage to delete the entries you want from there and then sync your changes then these entries won't show up in your history. Here is some info about editing this file

  • You can actually delete sites from the desktop without any hacks. But, I imagine that Android app will always have the visited site in its local database and re-sync it back to the desktop.
