Steps to reproduce

In Microsoft Edge there doesn’t seem a way to delete an entry from the auto fill box or when typing a website address into the address bar you can’t delete a single entry.

The only option seems to be deleting all the autocomplete entries.

In all other browsers, including internet explorer you can delete individual entries to both autofill forms and website entries.

UPDATED REPRO STEPS by MS Edge Team

There is a form at https://www.w3schools.com/TAGs/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_form_autocomplete which demonstrates how we cannot remove single entries from the autoComplete suggestions.

Also, from the home page in Edge, when we start to type an address, we cannot delete any of the autoComplete suggestions.

The workaround is to disable the feature.

    • The in ability to delete what websites autofill pulls up is absolutely unacceptable. This has created all sorts of problems on shared computer. Just the other day, our young child pulled up a website with adult content, although it had long been deleted from browsing history. I’m afraid this failure on MS development team, or rather, negligence in failing to bring over a feature in prior MS browser applications, has opened all sorts of legal liability for MS. Until this is fixed, I am deleting the Edge app and will use Google Chrome.
