Like what the title implies, I'm looking for an add-on that does pattern matching history clearing where I can load up the patterns that I want erased and the add-on clears my history of the specified patterns.

Like
Code: Select all
*yahoo.com*
*facebook*
comic*
(I read a LOT of comic sites, ...)

I try to keep up with it using the All History browser, on occasions I've forgotten and found somewhere like 2,000+ sites matching, say, comic, ...

There is one, but not afterward, only current tabs.
users using outdated and vulnerable software probably never will get an answer from me - sticked with the past? stay alone. foe means you are and idiot from my view.

I use this addon to remove history over 40 days but I don't have it look for any patterns. BUT, I see in its Welcome page where the user can enter in lines of code such as you mentioned... I don't know if it works or if entries of those expressions are instantaneous against history... or?

That, I entered a few expressions and it wipes them from the history list, instantly or at least on close of current session, did not test that.

Not quite, it's zapping on creation, what I was looking for was a Push This Button and zap all history matching the RegExp.
