Ive noticed an issue with Orfox. If you search, lets say, "Memes", under the search bar as you type there is a little duckduckgo icon, with your search term next to it, example:

[DDG Icon] Memes

If you click this to search rather than pressing enter, Orfox will suggest that search next time you open the browser. It seems the only way to make it "forget" the search term is to clear the app's data. This seems to be a privacy risk, because if anyone typed "m" into the search bar, my old search would show.

I was able to get people to recreate the issue in the Tor IRC.
