Firefox fills out form data automatically.

Posted

I know how to clear my cache so that it doesn't load up with old email addresses, however I would like to know what to shut off so that I have to fill out forms each time. It can remember some delicate information at times and I would like that to stop, not just keep happening as soon as I fill out a new form. Thanks!

In Tools -> Options, click the "Privacy" icon, then in the Firefox will dropdown choose "Use custom settings for history" Untick "Remember search and form history"

You can also hold down Shift and press Delete when hovering the mouse pointer over entries in form dropdowns.
