Cannot delete the history and Top Sites


I use Firefox Mobile 26.0.1 on a Fairphone with Android 4.2.2.
I am fully aware of how I have to delete the history (and Top Sites):
Settings-> privacy-> clear-> private data (select all) clear data

After doing this, I have not even alert "PrivΘes deleted" pop up, but it has no effect. All sites of history and high are still there.

I just UN - and reinstalled the app of the in-game store, so there should be no modules are no longer. Previously, I had installed "CleanQuit" app.
It erases the history to the closure of Firefox which has worked well.
But I can't delete the history in the way described above...

Best regards

Hi again,

I just watched another question, I've had with entries Add on endangered in the menu. I found this is the bug 832990.

After you turn off the checkbox 'do not keep activities' in the developer settings, I'm now able to clear history as it should!

    Cannot delete the file.  Says "not not found could not find this item check the location of this object and try again."

    I got this file from my friend got sent - is a word document, I had on their computer.  So I tried to use Disk Cleanup to delete temporary files, temporary internet files and files program downloaded.  Does not work.

    When I check the properties, there is no security tab so I can't transfer ownership in this way.

    I don't want to experiment using the way of the transfer of ownership command prompt as the name of the file is several sentences long.  I can't rename it either, of course.

    Windows 7, a week and I already have a stupid problem which has already lost an hour of my time.

    What I did was to create a Notepad file that was empty and saved in the same location as the file that won't go away.  Once registered.  I click with the right button on the new file and rename the exact name as the file problem.  Don't forget to change the file extension (ex: .doc)

    ex file problem: word.doc

    new file: word.doc

    as long as they match eachother exactly you should see the file problem disappear and once that's gone, you can delete the new file created.

  • Cannot delete the incorrect recipient "found in Mail" (and why Apple recipients to merge two incorrectly in the first place)

    I don't know how it happened, but I got a new doctor yesterday morning (it was the first time email address), they replied, then I replied again. Everything was fine.  Then, I sent my father later in the afternoon on a guitar. He said that he never had the email about the guitar but then later the new doctor responded saying I sent this message from guitar to them by mistake. I looked in my "Sent" to the message folder and it was sent to 'Rick Smith', which is the correct name for my father, but when I developed the details the actual address itself was my address of doctors!

    I checked my Contact cards and card "Rick Smith" my father had no address of the doctor as an email, so it's been very well. Also, I had not all the contact cards using this email to all address. In Apple mail, I went to the "previous winners' window and has removed the false contact and thought it would solve the problem. Unfortunately when I type in "Rick" when sending a new email, the first suggestion in the drop-down list gives me the real email "[email protected]" and the second suggestion is "Rick Smith - [email protected] ' and it is said that address"was in the mail." I also tried to delete the message and he always appears as an option in the drop-down list. In addition, I have a contact card for my dad with the correct address, so I don't know why he can't just use that one correct.

    I'm used to typing «Ri...» "and then selecting"Rick Smith"when I start a new email for him, but I don't want my doctor obviously message.

    First, how can I get rid of this fake recipient...

    Secondly, how and why Apple Mail merging those two into one without my knowledge? Is this a glitch El Capitan? (I just changed recently)

    I admit that your message is too long for me to read in its entirety.

    But I think you have some additional e-mail recipient information you do not wish to keep.

    In the Mail application, use the menu to go to the window > previous winners and clean you want to delete from there.
