Use these steps to remove saved (form) data from a drop-down list:

  1. click the (empty) input field on the web page to open the drop-down list
  2. highlight an entry in the drop-down list with the mouse or cursor Down key
    do not click the mouse or press the Enter key
  3. press the Delete key (on Mac: Shift+Delete) to delete the highlighted entry

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox profile folder.

Deleting history will not solve the problem. I installed Places Maintenance 1.3 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/places-maintenance/?src=api Ran "maintenance" - Solved this problem without messing with bookmarks or anything else.
