How do I disable autofill in Firefox Mobile (Android)?

Posted

I've found all sorts of people asking this for the desktop version, but what about for mobile? The autofill information gets in the way of the rest of the screen on phones, so is more harmful than useful, and I'd like to disable it, but I can't figure out how. Thanks.
