How does firefox know an email address (login) if i had never typed it on that particular website before?
I had typed that particular email on other websites, as a log-in, but not on the website and when I clicked in the text box to type in the email address for this (different) website the email address from the previous came up in the drop down menu. I am sure I have never used that email address on that website before. Why did this happen? Is this a firefox setting?
