Firefox 84.0.2 showing logins that don't exist

I let Firefox store my logins so I don't have to hunt no matter which computer I'm using. Lately, Firefox has decided to show logins that don't exist or haven't been used in decades (yes, DECADES). I ran CTRL-SHIFT- DEL, shut down and and restarted FF and rebooting. The fool things still show. What gives? How can these unneeded items be permanently removed? Thank you.

Maybe you have connected this Sync account to an older Firefox profile/device or used a profile that has these logins.

You can check the connected devices via the Firefox Settings page.

You can set signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup = false on the about:config page to prevent showing the other logins.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".

I whacked beaucoup syncs and it's still happening. Come to think of it, it didn't start until AFTER FF decided to update itself to 84 and only on one site - gmail. "Curiouser and curiouser", said Alice.

The items in the first screenshot all have a key symbol in front and thus are saved logins that should be present in Lockwise.

The extra items at the bottom are not from this website like to top items and thus likely added because of signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup being set to true.
