Question MyJDownloader: How to delete Packagename history?

How can I delete one or all (previously entered) package names from the history drop down box?

I can't delete them with DEL or ALT+DEL or SHIFT+DEL or CTRL+DEL.

Steps to reproduce:
1.) Select a download link
2.) Right click and choose "Download with JDownloader"
3.) Move your mousepointer over the "Add links" dialogbox
4.) Click on "Additional options"
5.) Click on the down-arrow in the field Packagename

This is the history list I want to clear completely or delete single selected entries (1 and/or 2):

@invisibleman78
see https://board.jdownloader.org/showth...agenamehistory
and
https://board.jdownloader.org/showpo...45&postcount=2

You've got to clear this field or edit to your own needs

I can't set a value lower then 25 in MyJD.
(Wanted to set it to 0 temporarely to clear it).

The history shows [], but the entries remain, no change.

Any other ideas?

@invisibleman78: value is not limited and I could change to 0 in JDownloader/Chrome and Firefox. What happens when you set it to 0 ? Are you on MacOS? What browser?

Update: Sorry, now I understand. You want to clear the history in the MyJDownloader Browser extension.
That is not stored in your JDownloader but I guess sort of autocomplete feature of the browser or another extension.

For me (Firefox) this field does not have any stored fields.
maybe check (Firefox)

THAT was a beast!
Thanks to your suggestion @Jiaz, I finally found the SQLite-Database called "WebData" for my Google Chrome containing my no more wanted MyJDownloader Browser Extension Package History
Code:
%localappdata%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\WebData
After searching this WebData-DB with
Code:
select * from autofill where value like '%unwanteduniquestring%'
and deleting it, the MyJDownloader Browser Extension no more show this entries.

Thanks for your update!

Sorry for the confusion.

This is a local SQLite database file called "WebData".
Created automatically by Google Chrome on the above %localappdata% path.

With "searching this WebData-DB" I meant opening this local file - after closing all Google Chrome windows - in a SQLite-Editor and execute the mentioned SQL search command.

With "delete it" I meant
Code:
DELETE from autofill where value like '%unwanteduniquestring%'
You should use a unique search string around your unwanted Package Manager History entries to not delete still wanted entries.

Thanks for the clarification Can you recommend a SQLite Editor?
Seems you can delete the autofill values direct in drop down,

Choose whatever SQLite-Editor you like

Unfortunately, the superuser-answer doesn't work for the "MyJDownloader Browser Extension Package History". This was my first attempt, as I wrote in my first question.
