unable to delete auto-fill suggestions in Safe Zone.
« on: June 04, 2018, 06:24:29 PM »
I have deleted browsing history but when I begin to type the w in "www" Safe Zone provides web sites that have been deleted.  If I search "History" it does not show these sites but auto-fill uses them.  I have tried [shift+delete] which should work for Chrome or Firefox but it does nothing.  Google is my search engine selection with Safe Zone but it does not let me remove unwanted suggestions.  How do we remove unwanted suggestions from Safe Zone? Does anyone have a solution?

No one has commented on this subject so I am wondering if I have done something wrong when I made the post. I don't really know how to see if there have been any replies or not. How do I know if anyone has replies to my post?

You should get an email message if there are any responses to your topic or a topic in which you have posted.

In your Profile - Modify Profile - Notifications, I believe the default should be to receive notifications.  I have this switched off as I'm a frequent visitor to the forums, I just click on the 'Show new replies to your posts' option at the top of the page.

Using Avast Secure Browser, did you mean ASB or do you mean Avast Safe Zone Browser?

The first is newest and supported, whereas the second is obsolete and is not supported anymore.

You can get Avast Secure Browser from here:  https://blog.avast.com/take-back-control-of-your-privacy-with-avast-secure-browser-avast
and here:  https://www.avast.com/secure-browser?hsCtaTracking=14cbc742-cdb6-4dea-bfdb-2ed762fabcbb%7C77c027af-cbf6-4bbf-962b-986ccaef2c35

Tip:  While in ASB you can always hit the F1 button for help specific to Avast Secure Browser.  A new tab will open.

I(f) you have bookmarks you want to save, etc., I'd back them up first before uninstalling Avast Safe Zone Browser.
