Hi forum,

 

When I log-in into Yahoo's e-mail with Firefox, I always got my username pop-out when I just enter first character of my log-in username.  It is convenient.  However, if I want to close this convenient function, I cannot find any way to shut it off.

 

Does anyone know how to do it ?  I don't have this problem in my ie or Chrome, just in FF.

 

Thanks forum.

Hello :)
 

Go to Tools > Options > Privacy, make sure that the dropdown menu says "Use custom settings for history", and disable "Remember search and form history". Of course, that will make Firefox forget ALL things input into any forms, not just the usernames. 

...

Disabling that setting will prevent Firefox from remembering new names, but the old names are still saved. You will have to remove names via Remove recent browsing, search and download history.
