The addresses of people who have never used my computer are showing up in my autofill.

In my "saved addresses" list under the Privacy and Security section of Firefox Settings, there are two addresses of people that have never used my computer. One formerly went to my school, and the other is a stranger. I can think of no way that they could have had access to my account at any time. Are there any other possible explanations for this?

Chosen solution

I think first you should check the list of connected devices in your accounts page:

https://accounts.firefox.com/settings#connected-services

Is there anything strange there?

Next, can you recall ever filling a form with the mystery addresses for any reason? Firefox may save addresses without asking, unlike logins, so they seem to accumulate.

Suggestions in a login drop down list that have a key icon in front are login suggestions that you need to remove in the Lockwise Password Manager. Suggestions in a drop down list without a key symbol are autocomplete saved form data.

Suggestions without a key icon are part of autocomplete saved form data that you should be able to remove by selecting this item with the cursor Down key and pressing Delete (Mac: Shift+Delete). Note that saved form data is not website (hostname) specific and thus you can see suggestions you entered on other pages in a form with the same name as selector.
