How do I stop Firefox from autocompleting usernames on just one site?

Firefox keeps autocompleting and has a drop down for my username for a website. I do not have the password/username saved.

I found this article: I followed the directions. It worked, no more drop down. However, after I signed into the site and back out, the drop down came back.

I don't mind Firefox autocompleting for most websites, but for sensitive websites, like online banking, how can I get it to NEVER autocomplete or create a drop down? Again, I don't have the username/password saved, and I don't necessarily want to disable to feature for every website.

Thank you!

First, are we talking about the Password Manager or Firefox auto-complete?

In either case, someone would need access to your Firefox profile, which also means access to your computer user account. Use a Master Password to protect stored logins and passwords

No, my problem is with autocomplete. You did not remotely answer my question. I specifically said this had nothing to do with passwords.

Click in the field and enter a character or two and STOP ! Using the arrow keys, highlight an unwanted entry. Then press Delete (Mac=Shift Delete). Repeat as needed.

This may be better,

Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar.

The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.

Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on Cache and Form And Search History.
