How do I stop passwords that I use on web sites being saved and then displayed next time I try to type them ?

Posted

Firefox decided all by itself to start showing my passwords when I go to log in to things like my web mail. I would NEVER enable this feature and I can't find out how to stop it. When I go to security in the options menu it does not seem to feature.

Did you store anything in Firefox Password Manager?

If not, That could 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.
