How to avoid that account login info is stored?
Hi Firefox community, I don't want to store any account login data (also not usernames) on the shared PC that I'm using. In settings > passwords there is no entry, and under access data and passwords any options are deactivated. Although passwords are not stored, Firefox shows the user names/account names whenever I click such field. Where can I deactivate that user names/account names are stored and shown? Many Thanks in advance. Best wishes!

If your seeing the user names that means you have AutoFill set to save them.
You need to also clear the cache/history to insure there is no AutoFill saved as well.
Suggestions in a login drop-down list that have a key icon in front are login suggestions that you need to remove in the Password Manager.
Suggestions in a drop-down list without a key symbol are autocomplete saved form data. Suggestions without a key icon are part of autocomplete saved form data that you should be able to remove by selecting this item with the cursor Down key and pressing Delete (Mac: Shift+Delete).
Hi Dropa, Thanky you very much. I have deleted cache/history. At the next login the login name didn't show up. At the subsequent login the login name was there again. Hi cor-el, Thanky you very much. The suggestion had no key symbol. I have deleted it by cursor down + delete. At the next login the login name didn't show up. At the subsequent login the login name was there again.
Attached a screenshort of my access data / password setting (using a German version). I hope the settings are correct and it's not an error from my side.
Here's another tip. Never use Shared Computer for your personal activities. Shared computers means you have no control of the settings or what IT does for it's settings even if you changed when you log out they revert to IT settings.
As this is an entry without a key icon, what you experience is seeing "saved form data", so you need to check that setting further down under history.
- Settings -> Privacy & Security
Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history": "Remember search and form history"
