I want to clear the memory and start with a blank drop
Appreciate any help,
Thanks for all the responses;
First I didn't realize that the entries were saved in the browser memory,
So, I went, as some replies suggested, to [Preferences].
Clicked on [Privacy].
Found History, printed in BOLD type;
Unchecked the box, [v]Remember search and form history.
This was done on Firefox 27.0
I find this important because sometimes when not
paying attention to what is happening, one may
mistakenly type a password into a login entry field.
Thanks to all that replied.
I found that what I wrote above only keeps the drop down window from opening. However, the information is still in memory. When I go to
my website, if I restart the drop down window boxes, I find that
the information remains.
One of the suggestions to clear Form & Search History cleared data from the opening firefox window but not from any website I logged into.
I went to [History], top of Firefox menu,
next, clicked on [Clear Recent History],
then, un-checked [x] [Active Logins]
then clicked on [Clear Now].
Now, returning to my website, after resetting Firefox to re-open the drop down boxes, they drop down and they are empty. This seems to have solved the problem.
