How do I delete a password I accidentally saved on Firefox 4.0b11?
As Firefox 4.0b11 does not have a Tools Menu to access, I don't know how to delete a password that I accidentally saved through the browser. As I want to protect my personal information, it is important that I learn how to do this to ensure everything is secure. Going forward, how can I eliminate the box that comes up asking me if I want to remember the password? I never want the passwords to be stored.

In Firefox 4 you can press F10 or use "Firefox > Customize" to make the Menu Bar and other toolbars visible and remove the check-mark on "Tabs on Top" to place the tab bar in the old position.
You see the orange (on Linux gray) Firefox button if the Menu Bar is hidden (View > Toolbars > Customize or right-click a toolbar).
If you need to access the hidden Menu bar then press F10 or hold down the Alt key to make the Menu Bar appear temporarily.
Remove saved Password(s): Tools > Options > Security: Passwords: "Saved Passwords" > "Show Passwords"

I'm using 4.b13 but I think your version will do this: hit the ALT key & the Menu bar will come up for you & you'll have the controls you're used to from 3.6
Otherwise click the orange Firefox button at the top left & go to 'Options'
From there go to the 'Security' tab:
Turn off 'Remember passwords for sites' and then click the 'Saved Passwords' button to delete any passwords that might currently be saved.
Wow, thank you so much for such a quick response! Problem solved!
For future reference, if I were to download 4.b13, would I lose all my bookmarks, etc?
Thank you again!!!
