When I have been in a different location (city, country, etc.) but trying to access my usual web sites that I visit, often I'm asked to supply a new "nickname" for a web browser. I cannot use what is logical to me because that "name is already in use." So . . . I have to come up with something new. I would like to find the list of nicknames so that i can delete some of them.
