BT Yahoo login

Silly question probably, but here goes anyway.

How do I stop the BT Yahoo login screen from remembering and prompting all my previous login strings?

e.g. I type in "a" and I get a drop down of all my previous login attempts beginning with "a..."

(if it makes any difference I am using Firefox as my browser)

What I want/need to do is clear the memory and start again as some of the options are typos!

Re: BT Yahoo login

Try this

 

Click on the text field

  • Press the Down key to activate autocomplete
  • Highlight the entry you want deleted by using the arrow keys or hovering over it with your mouse
  • Press the Delete key (On Mac use "Shift + Delete").

 

Have a look at these links
