Hi - you know when you make a mistake in putting something into a login box and then the next time, you get a dropdown box which shows the previous logins? How do you clear the wrong details?

It's not a mega problem, just an annoying one!

.

Sometimes, if you just highlight the item and press the Delete key that one item is removed from the list.

I tried that, Peter. It removes it but next time it comes back.

Which Browser?
Im guessing it could be that the entries have been saved/remembered as passwords by the browser.
In firefox 3 you can view and remove them.
tools>options.security>saved passwords>view saved passwords and remove the rogue entries leaving the correct one in place

I was thinking of my o2 login page: I originally put in my full email address instead of just the bit before the @ sign. I've also got the same problem with the box on our club website: the password is changed now and again, but all the old ones are listed.

With my memory, it's a bit trial and error picking the latest one!

I've just done as you suggested and that's it - many thanks!
