Firefox 68.0.1 MacOS saves email address form data, but it's all turned off in prefs
I always leave form autofill settings off. Yet in the last several Firefox versions, email addresses pop up as suggestions when I use login forms. I read the help articles. I triple-checked settings. Different login forms suggest various addresses (I have many), which is also odd.
I read that this might be caused by extension conflicts. Is there a list? I wanted to know if this is a known issue before I try to troubleshoot it.
PS: I'm pretty unhappy that My Firefox Account exposes my email address username in this forum. I changed it in Firefox Accounts, but here it still shows. Since this forum is world readable and I can't delete my message, I'm going to delete my account.
Please moderator delete this question for me.

Hah. I cannot even delete my account. The button doesn't do anything most tries with any of the strings I might consider my user name (Firefox and Brave), but the final attempt, I got an error message about something being wrong and alerting the admins. Great.
If the Firefox Password Manager is enabled and you have stored username and password for a website then current Firefox releases show these saved items as suggestions in a drop-down list. It is not possible to disable this list from showing other then disable the Password Manager if you do not need to login.
- Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security: Logins and Passwords: "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites"
