How do I clear incorrect usernames that have accumulated on gmail? Clearing the cache and history do not help.

Posted

Over time, due to me hitting wrong keys, my gmail login has accumulated several mistyped usernames. Every time I access gmail, they all pop up. I'd like to start clean, but I can't get rid of them. I've followed your instructions for clearing my cache and history, but to no avail. I've followed instructions to click inside the username window and then use the arrow and delete keys--also no success. I'm on a Mac, OSX 10.4.11. Thank you!
