delete emails + other erroneous info from drop down menus??

Posted

I'd like to erase some erroneous and OLD email addresses from the Firefox drop down menus. My current email address is typed incorrectly a number of times and keeps popping up ! Any idea how this is easily done? With thanks in advance.

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Deleting_autocomplete_entries

You can do that if you visit the website and left-click the field to open the drop down list. Highlight, but do not click, the item that you want to remove and press the Delete key (Shift + Delete on Mac).

I tried what 1899 solutions suggested but it didn't work--- I have a PC and my son changed his email address, I deleted his address from my contacts however, it still shows in the drop down menu when I go to type in his name for a new email message. How do I delete his OLD email address from the drop down menu?

Highlight the entry in the drop down list and press the Delete key (on Mac Shift + Delete) to remove that entry.
