I want to delete the saved usernames that are wrong and in some cases include the pword ... accidentals.

Some of the user names being saved are errors .. so when you key the username box, i get a 'list' of usernames. A couple have the user name + the password because apparently did not see that the tab key did not move the curser and it was just tagged onto the user name. I'd like to be able to delete or reset the user names. All the forum questions deal with password saving, but I don't save any of my passwords and the user names are automatic unless I turn off the 'Remember search and form history'. Any suggestions?

Chosen solution

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 also check the Password Manager for saved user names and passwords.

Just-A-User 's solution sounded like it should work, but did not... no effect. But after solving the issue using cor-el 's solution ... well did I feel dumb or what?!! THX so much, I guess your direction to NOT USE THE MOUSE to delete it made all the difference. Appreciate both of you taking the time to get back to me!
