How to delete entries from search box history in Mac Firefox

Is there any way to delete entries from the search box in the Mac version of Firefox? Not the suggestions, but the previous searches that come up automatically when I type into it. I am not trying to clear the whole history. I just want to delete individual items.

"Shift-Delete is the key combination to do this, however it's not the ""delete"" key you'll find on a macbook keyboard. On a MacBook or other Apple keyboard, you should use Shift+Fn+Delete.

On a windows keyboard, the key in the top right corner of the main part of the keyboard (two rows above the enter/return key) is labeled ""Backspace"". There's a separate key labeled ""Delete"" to the right of that, grouped with Page Up/PageDown, Home and End. If you have an external keyboard with this layout, use that ""Delete"" key with Shift."
