I want to prevent or block URLs of specific domains from being saved or shown in my history. I want to be able to go to these certain websites normally, just not have them saved and not have to use private or incognito mode.

For instance, I don't want any of Google's search result pages to be saved in my history since then when I use the awesomebar I get a lot of Google's search results, which are of no use to me.

Of course I can keep on deleting them, but I would like a way to specify that any URL starting with shouldn't be saved.

I still have yet to explore how this can be done manually.
But for now you can use HistoryBlock Addon. I believe it answers your requirements.
