Editing Firefox form field history?


Is is possible to edit/remove entries in the history that comes up when you start typing into a form field? I don't mean turning history off completely, I mean just getting rid of typo entries and such. Anybody know how to do this?

Awesome trick, I hate it when an incorrectly typed user name gets saved in my form history.
