I've got a couple of URL autocomplete suggestions where Chrome suggests the wrong URL consistently.

How can I delete the incorrect entry from the address bar's suggestion list? The page I want shows up too but it's never the first result.

When the suggestion loads up, press Shift + Delete, it removes the wrong entry.

For Mac, it's Shift + fn +Delete
