Error performing query while trying to clear video watch history?
You might experience the query error while trying to clear video watch history on Facebook web as seen below.
If you experience the error above, login to your Facebook mobile app and follow the procedure in the first section of the article to delete your video watch history. I was able to clear the history successfully on the mobile app even when I got the query error on web.
