stop Firefox from remembering login credentials

My Firefox browser keeps autofilling username on one important website and it is preventing me from accessing that website. Website indicates that this username is not valid. How can I stop this?

Take a look at this documentation page: Autofill logins on Firefox

Three other ways a user name (but not a complete login) might be populated into a form are:

(A) Form history

See: Control whether Firefox automatically fills in forms

(B) Browser cache

Reload the page bypassing the cache with one of these methods:

  • Shift+click the Reload button on the toolbar
  • Ctrl+Shift+R
  • Ctrl+F5 key

(C) Page script using a value stored in a cookie

To remove the site's cookies. while viewing a page on the site, click the lock icon at the left end of the address bar. After a moment, a "Clear Cookies and Site Data" button should appear at the bottom. Go ahead and click that. Firefox will ask you to confirm; go ahead and confirm. Then try reloading the page.

Have you been able to track it down and clear it?
