Currently, the only method for cleaning a specific text-field is cleaning ALL the text-fields (with the powerful tool CTRL+MAJ+DEL for example). FireFox should offers the possibility to erase fields one by one, for example if you want to erase only, hum...., the indiscreet Google search field...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Highlighting the entry, shift+delete should also work.
But clearing the whole Google search field in one action would be handy indeed, as I never search for exactly the same thing twice.

Thank you for the "shift+delete" tip, it's very useful. I think as you : some fields keep in memory lots of entries, and this is very long to clean them all. I'm sure the "right-clic cleaning" is not hard to do :-)

Yes, it's related to the bug 279188 (it describes another way to clean Form entries, like for passwords or cookies). But I think the current bug could also be a completely new and separate feature, because it's easier to clean a field when you are on it than going searching for its name and then cleaning it in a separate interface ?
context click "Clear all entries to this field" seems like a good idea.

I'm not super-keen on the idea, but I think having a right-click context menu entry to clear form history for a specific field (ala search bar in the browser chrome) would be ok.
