How to get rid of saved logins that don't belong to site I'm trying to login?

Posted

I have multiple saved logins for single page and I can choose right account before login from list Firefox is displaying.

It was working perfectly (if site had single login saved it was auto-filled, if multiple - I could choose login from list).

But now Firefox is displaying logins that don't belong to site I'm in - how to get rid of that?

Are they logins for websites that share the same subdomain?

For example, if you are trying to login to example.com, Firefox may also show accounts from blog.example.com as well, because they are both from the same domain.

Obviously, you've blurred the information (thanks for saving the moderators the hassle of having to delete the image because it contains personal information), so I don't know if that's the case or not.

If it is, go to the about:config page and try setting the signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup preference to false. Then restart Firefox and see if that makes a difference.

Hope this helps.
