Someone else used my computer to log in to their gmail account a long time ago. Now, everytime I want to log in to my gmail account, their profile pops up. I can't log in to delete it, and it is annoying because I'm always asked to log in to their email first...rather than my own. I could easily delete the user when I log on using google chrome...

Does the web site go straight to the other account, or place the other user/password into the page login?

Have you tried logging off the other account?

Open the Password Manager and remove the others data. Type about:preferences#security<enter> in the address bar. Press the Saved Passwords button at the lower right.

I can't get in to the other account at all. No one has accessed it for over 3 months...but it continues to be the primary account that pops up when I want to log in. I have to hit "Sign in with a different account."

I tried following your instructions...but nothing seems to have changed.

Thanks for trying to help! Val
