How can I prevent my previous login strings from showing when I starting typing. I'd rather the field stay blank and not start to fill in, based on previous entries.

Posted

I don't know what setting to change so that when I start typing my login (to an email account, etc), the previous entries do not show up. I want the field to start out and stay blank, and have me type the whoe string

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== has been, all along

Clear the Search and Form History, under Tools > Clear Recent History.

And, then turn off the Search and Form History so it won't save it anymore, in Tools > Options >> Privacy - select Use custom settings for history, then un-select Search and Form History
