How do I disable Firefox showing usernames in login boxes? (not the PW autofill)

When login credentials for a site are stored, firefox shows the associated usernames as drop-down in the edit field of a site login.

Since this shows *all* accounts that it knows for that site, I'd like to turn that off. I'd like to keep the auto-fill of passwords, once I've manually entered the username (as it was in the past).

I've only found how to deactivate the whole auto-fill for both: username and passwords.

Any way to get the old (=more discrete) behavior back?

Hi, open the 3-bar menu > Options >Privacy & Security > History, then deselect 'Remember search and form history.' Note; to delete individual entries please see Control whether Firefox automatically fills in forms.
