Remove field name history under "Add New Field" in Propertie

Is there a way to clear the history of fields I've entered in the Field name input of Add New Field in the Properties menu?

Here is a screenshot.  Foobar fills the Field name input box with ORIGINAL RELEASE as soon as I type 'O' in the  input box.  I don't want to use this field any more so I'd like to remove it from the autofill / dropdown options.



Thanks.

with the latest fb2k, you no longer get a drop down list with arrow. you have to go for the advanced config to delete the entry

Hello, I've been trying to do this for a while (having drop-down entries with typos i'd like to get rid of) and finally thought i found the right forum discussion...
But i'm unable to find where this advanced config item is.
I've tried File / Preferences that opens the Media Library Preferences window. Browsed all menus and sub-menus without success.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks
