If you click the downarrow on the "show previous searches" option, a list of all previous searches is shown below the cursor, and then you can easily choose any of the previous searches. Or you can show the history in a separate window or you can choose "Clear History". So far so good.
But if the list of searches is long, and the clickpoint is near the bottom of the screen, the described list is shown upwards, but NOT above the cursor, but with the cursor positioned on the last choice: "Clear History". If you happen to release the mouse button then and there, you have selected Clear History, and all your previous searches are unintentionally erased. This has happened to me on more than one occasion. Very annoying.
I suggest showing the list ABOVE the cursor in this case so this mistake cannot be made any more.
