If what you are trying to do is clear the text field because you are on a UNIX like OS and want to use middle click to paste, there are some extensions for that. I use ClearFields.

It adds a button to the right of the search box and clicking on it clears the text.

You can clear a specific entry from the form/search history by getting it to show up, then using the up/down arrow keys to highlight the entry, then using Shift-Del to delete it.

If you want to clear your history less discriminately, you can use the Clear Recent History option in the Tools menu.
