    The browser, such as Firefox, store all the links that I ever use. So when I type in the first few character of the link that I DO want to go to, these unwanted links also shows up from the hotkey I type in

    Is there a way to remove these unwanted links?

    Well its an option so i would start looking under options
    Then its kinda about privacy of not beeng tracked so next step would probably be under privacy

    That would be my guess

    no, no setting to remove an individual link. I can erase all, but I don't want that

    If it comes back up it's usually because it's bookmarked or similar.

    Try turning that off, then clear you history.
