I installed the latest version of 1Password 3.6.5 but its extension is incompatible with Firefox 3.6.2. It wants Firefox 4 or 5. The 1Password extension does work, however, on my Safari 5.1 browser. I want 1Password on both browsers but Firefox is preventing this due to inability to automatically update to Firefox 4 or 5. That option is checked in the Firefox preferences.

Sometimes an erroneous logon gets typed in for a site and that logon is saved somewhere. I want to go to that place and delete the incorrect logons I have accumulated from that list. If I have to, I would delete all logons and start over just to get rid of the bad ones.
