How can I delete some (or all) of the sign-in suggested account names when signing in to an email account?

Posted

When I go to sign in to an email account and click in the box for the account name, several account names are listed. Some are wrong or misspelled. How can I delete some (or all) of the sign-in suggested account names when signing in to an email account?

That would be the form filler built into Firefox. Click in the field, enter a character or two and STOP ! Using the arrow keys, highlight an unwanted entry. Then press Delete (Mac=Shift Delete). Repeat as needed.
