When I start to type a new web address in the address bar (Safari), any previous address I have typed that begins with the same first letter or two shows up in a drop down box. This drop down box can be very lengthy and contain many web addresses I will never use again. How do I delete any or all (at once) of these old web addresses I want to get rid of? Thanks.

There is no way to turn off URL Autocompletee or to realistically clear the autocomplete list. Autocomplete gets its data from the cache, History, and Bookmarks. The only way to minimize autocomplete is to periodically clear the cache and History and to go through your Bookmarks and delete old and seldom used ones, including those created when Safari was first installed.
One work-around is to add an extra blank space either before you start typing or when you are done typing in the address. All the various alternatives will then disappear.
You can add your voice to all the others who want to turn autocomplete off by requesting a toggle in Preferences by sending a feature request via "Report Bugs to Apple" under the Safari menu.
