silly and slightly embarrasing firefox question

How do i clear the search history/suggestions in the google search box in my browser (not too bothered the one on the actual google page)?
I have browsed some sites that i wouldn't want everybody and their dog to know about.
And before anyone points out that i should have used private browsing.... I already know that haha, i just forgot to turn it on and then went "wooops"

I don't use Firefox (Slowest Browser Ever), but I'm pretty sure there's a little icon with a clock in the top-right of the window. Clicking on it should show you your history. Find the pages you want to delete, then right-click/forget about this page.

I'm using firefox right now, theres no clock.
Click on "history", then "clear recent history" and select "everything" from the drop down menu in the window that appears. That should cover your "a"r"s"e"!

You can also prevent FFox from keeping track of where you've been simply by using Preferences > Privacy > Keep My History ......... and winding it down to 0 (1 might be more helpful to you).ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.
I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
