3. Run the following javascript lines from the Console window (Esc)...

var checkBoxes =document.getElementsByClassName('entry-box');

for (i = 0; i< s.length; i++) {checkBoxes[i].childNodes[0].checked = true;}

document.getElementById('remove-selected').disabled = false;

4. Now just click the Remove selected Items button that should be enabled.

Alternatively as my colleague Joseph pointed out, you can just use this browser extension if you like,...

Search your history, then this will let you delete the search results.
