How to Delete an Auto Complete URL

By default, nearly all Web browsers store information about the websites you visit, including a record of every URL you access. Depending on the browser, this information may be stored for a few days, a few weeks, or indefinitely. Prevent an auto-completing URL from appearing in the address bar in Internet Explorer, Firefox or Opera by deleting the corresponding history item from your browser.
