ok this might sound a bit silly but here goes...

how can i delete the google history on the search page? I was looking for an engagement ring for my gf and everytime i go into google to do a search all my previous listings come up in the search bar.

I've already had to deflect her from using it saying theres something wrong and I don't want my surprise to be found out..... HELP PLEASE I'M GETTING DESPERATE NOW!!

By the way I have firefox as my web browser if that helps

Control Panel>Internet Options. Hit delete files, delete cookies, clear history. That should do it!

Under Internet Options>Content it can also help to disable Autocomplete.

In Firefox, click on the small button to the left of the Google search bar. Click on Googlebar options then miscellaneous and change the maximum number of searches to keep in the history file to zero.

You may need to restart Firefox.
