Clean up suggestions

On mobile

All you have to do is bring up the unwanted suggestion ("" in our example) by typing the first letters in the address bar, then press a long press on the site title for the browser to suggest deleting the suggestion.

To delete a suggestion, you must first make it appear (by typing the first letters) then highlight it in blue in the list. Once done, just use the keyboard shortcut " Shift + Delete To erase the unwanted.
