I am using Firefox to open Web GUI of OpenWRT, but firefox is displaying password (which was remembered) in the password fields. It must not do that. This problem is only caused in Firefox, not in either Chrome or IE. What to do now? :(

the Password Manager automatically sends the user name and password when a known site asks for one. The only way to stop this is to remove the information from the manager. Why do you not want password filled in?

Under Passwords, To check the passwords you have listed, press Saved Passwords.
