How do I get Firefox to stop adding +1 to my phone # in Autofill
I like the Autofill feature in Firefox, but FF keeps adding a +1 to my phone number. I enter my phone as 10 digits, no dashes or spaces, area code + number. I change it and the +1 reappears. +1xxx-xxx-xxxx is not a format accepted by most web forms.
Additional System Details

Many phone companies need the +1 for long distance calls. Would it be a long distance call for wherever the number is going?
Note: Some web pages will add the +1 because of their scripts.
Most people know that you need to dial a 1 before dialing a number outside of your home area code, but I've never seen a web form or sweepstakes form that has you type a +1 before the number.
Most only accept 10 digits unless they want you to include the hyphens. Firefox autofill works good on a lot of forms, but when it fills in the ph# with a +1 I always have to edit it.
Maybe this should be in the options, or an about:config parameter
