Delete an auto-fill form data entry in Firefox

Submitted by gunnar on

When you have entered a value into a form, Firefox will remember it and suggest it the next time you use the form. When such a value is incorrect or for some other reason not relevant anymore you probably want to delete it. Very simple but not very well documented. Here is how it is done:

  1. Put the cursor in the field that the value is associated with.
  2. Press the down-arrow to show the drop-down the list of values and select the unwanted one.
  3. Presh Shift+Delete or Ctrl+Delete.
  4. The value is gone.

Simple if you now how. A right click popup menu would have been more intuitive in my opinion.
