I do not want my password to appear at login when connecting to facebook. it only does it with firefox, not when login in with internet explorer


every time I login to facebook, my password shows up in x's and lets me go right into fb. anyone who knows my email can just login. it does not happen when i use internet explorer. i have changed my password when logging on with firefox and it keeps showing x's. it does not matter what computer i am on. i have the box unchecked to not keep me logged in. what can i do so i have to type my password in at login and so password does not automatically appear.

There are a few different ways a login form could get filled in.

(1) Saved Passwords feature

You can clear a saved login in the Options dialog here:

orange Firefox button or classic Tools menu > Options > Security > "Saved Passwords" button

Alternately, when you're on the login page itself, you can get to that dialog using

Page Info > Security "View Saved Passwords"

Page Info is available from the Tools menu or the right-click menu.

(2) Form history feature

You can turn this off on the following tab if you do not want to use this feature:

orange Firefox button or classic Tools menu > Options > Privacy

When you have Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history" there is a checkbox for "Remember search and form history"

To delete specific entries, usually you can click in the field and all history for that field will appear in a drop-down. Arrow down and use Shift+Delete to remove those entries. I don't know whether there is a way to mark that form field NOT to be saved.

(3) Add-on or external password manager or form filler

If you have an add-on, it usually will show up under your Extensions, where you often can find an Options button:

orange Firefox button or classic Tools menu > Add-ons > Extensions category

Any luck?
