Description Heiko Tietze 2017-07-19 13:19:20 UTC
There might be situations where showing the recently used characters is a security issue. I suggest to add a context menu with 'Remove Character' (the selected) and 'Clear All'. The same could be done for favorites.

Starting to work on it
Comment 2 Heiko Tietze 2017-08-04 10:28:15 UTC
Fixed with the context menu providing 'Clear' and 'Clear all'. To improve the readability please rename 'Clear' to 'Remove' (and keep 'Clear all').
