How do I delete a saved username in Firefox?

When I use multiple usernames for the same website, Firefox remembers the usernames. In Firefox for Windows, I could delete these saved usernames by highlighting the username I wanted to delete (arrow down) and hitting the delete button. This does not work on my Mac. How do I delete usernames I don't want saved?

  • You can delete login-names and passwords in the Password Manager list of saved (remembered) passwords. Select the items that you want to delete and click the "Remove" button (or press the Delete key).

That function is working fine. I am talking about usernames, though, not passwords. Example: I open the Facebook login page. When I click on the "E-mail" box, a drop down opens that displays every e-mail address that this computer has used to log in to Facebook. I would like to delete some of them. On my Windows machine, I highlighted and hit the delete button. That doesn't work on the Mac. Any idea how to do that? It ought to be simple. Thanks.
