When I type "sport" in Google Chrome's address bar, I get this:

enter image description here But when I type "sport." I get this one:

enter image description here

I've deleted all history, of all time. But I still get "www.sport.ro" as a suggestion (green one). I've never visited this site (on purpose) as I don't speak Romanian.

I've tried Fn+Shift+Del or only Shift+Del while selecting the entry with the arrows but nothing happens as it seems to work (temporarily) only for entries with the magnifying glass icon in front.

How do I remove it from the suggestions?

  • Is your browser language correct? do you have the problem with this one case or more? Jun 5, 2014 at 23:44
  • For almost everything I write there is a suggestion, but only big websites, e.g. yahoo, youtube, facebook, nike, etc.

  • Are you using the newest Chrome update ? I remember this was the case before, but know when you want to delete some suggestion like in your case you just hit Win+H and delete the site sport.ro. And the suggestion won't be made again.

If you have ever visited the site before, the following will help get rid of the suggestion.

  • Download and install SQLite Browser if you don't already have it.(the portableApps version will do.)

  • Copy my instructions somewhere and close Chrome. (this won't work with chrome open.)

  • Navigate to %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default and open the Shortcuts file in the sqlite browser that you just downloaded

  • Under the Browse Data tab, select omno_box_shortcuts from the Table: dropdown.

  • Under the 'contents' column, in the Filter box, type www.sport.ro and delete the row the shows up below.

That should do it. Open Chrome and let me know how it goes
