For example: I was filling out a form on a website I had never been to before, which requested my e-mail address. After I had typed a few characters, a floating box appeared just below the form's field, containing one of my e-addresses (similar to but not the one I was inputting). I do not want Firefox to keep enough knowledge to allow other people to pretend to be me (even on my home computer).

- Uncheck the Remember Search and Form Data option
Thanks, Whiz. Perfect. I missed the "custom" option in the drop-down box. Now that I see the expanded "menu", I had that setting for the past few years. Can't imagine how it got reset, but it's fixed now.
Note that saved form data isn't site specific in Firefox, but tied to the name/id of the input field.
