Not knowing what you've tried, or what you might want to try, see:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=remove+specific+URLs+from+browsing+history+firefox&t=h_&atb=v33-7__&ia=qa

I have no idea what you mean by "this is."

 

That search returns a wide variety of different options depending on the exact vintage of Firefox you're using.   The only way I have ever found to resolve something when I'm in your situation is to keep going down the list and trying the next thing I have not yet tried.

 

I then report back when I hit on it.  If the actual documentation at the Firefox help pages, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-awesome-bar-suggestions, is not correct then I would make a point of contacting them with a question.

Oh I thought you meant the first suggestion on the page. Sorry. But the mozilla support page helped. Thank you! :) Solved.
