Someone else's name is showing up as a saved login user name on Twitter.com - Firefox only

I use Firefox (94.0.2) on a Macbook Pro (using MacOS 11.6.1) and went to log in to Twitter this evening and had a strange result. I only occasionally view Twitter using my laptop and I use my email address and a password to log in. When I clicked in the field that reads "Phone, user name or email" I expected to see the Firefox autofill to show my email address, but instead it shows the name "Farha Hussain" (see screenshot image).

I checked my Firefox preferences for Saved Logins and I have my email address and password for Twitter saved there, but no mention of Farha Hussain (my name is Keith). I tried other websites to see if I could recreate the issue and couldn't. I visited the Twitter login form using Chrome and Safari and neither suggested Farha Hussain as a user name, so I think that this is something specific to Firefox on the Twitter website.

To make this an even more unusual situation, the only "Farha Hussain" that I know is a doctor in my city who I have been meaning to contact to see if she is accepting patients, but haven't yet done so. Her name is in my Mac Calendar and that's the only place I can think of on my computer (not in contacts or anywhere else). How this would be connected to a Twitter login is beyond my understanding.

Let me know if you would like additional information or screenshots.

The strange issue persisted for a few days after I wrote last, but now seems to be resolved as Farha's name no longer appears. I'm not sure if this issue was resolved by Mozilla or by Twitter.

I've tried uploading the screenshot as a .png and as a .jpg file (both relatively small file sizes) but I just get a spinning icon and "Uploading..." message. I restarted Firefox and the computer and neither seems to have made it possible to upload the screenshot.

Tried uploading image again today and it seems to be allowing it now. Thanks for any advice on what might be causing this strange issue.

Note that this is not saved login name as that would have a key symbol in front, but possibly saved form data or maybe provided by the website.

Good point about the lack of the key symbol. It must have been seen as saved Form Data somehow. I looked through the source code and linked javascript files when I first noticed it but couldn't find anything coming from twitter.com with the name. I'm glad it's fixed now however it happened. :)

The problem with saved form data is that it isn't site specific like with a saved login, so with a common name/id of an input field you can see this choice offered on websites.
