If I type the letter Y in the omnibox, the whole URL is autocompleted to:
pressing shift + delete does nothing, nor does fn + shift + delete. (I have a Mac Air 2011, it has a key marked
delete which is next to plus, and also has a
fn key. The verious suggestions for getting rid of these entries do not work for me.
To get to youtube homepage, I have to then CLICK in the omnibox (or press rightarrow, then backspace over
/player_api' and press enter. If I touch any other key, it autocompletes again and puts/player_api` back onto the url! ARGH!
I do not want to ever go to /player_api, and it's stupid that this is unremovable. It is particularly annoying for IP addresses, where if I type a number it autocompletes to any number of IP based addresses I've entered, and I can't get rid of the damned things because shift+delete no longer works.
To search for something beginning with Y (like YUI) I can just keep typing my word, as normal.
I DO want to search from the omnibox, I am signed into chrome and do use the multi-computer feature a LOT. I just don't want inline autocomplete.
