Update:
Also occurs when searching via search engines, such as searching through google.com (even logged out)

This also applies even when the browser is in Ghost Mode. You will see your previous searches from Ghost Mode populated in a dropdown. Clearing your history and clearing all data from settings does not resolve this issue.

Testing this now. Seems the search history is being cleared as expected.

To clarify, the URL bar searches are cleared but as stated in the ticket, searches via a website (such as google.com) remain after the history is cleared. I'll adjust the 'how to reproduce' summary to clarify this.
