Firefox edit form history.

When you write something in a form (i.e. search fields, login names, etc), Firefox stores what you've written in a file, called formhistory.dat. Now, it happens that one write something wrong (e.g. a wrong user name), and it gets stored, so every type you've got to write that username it pops out again the wrong one.

One solution is to delete formhistory.dat, but you loose all the form history. The proper solution is to highlight the entry you want to delete from the drop-down suggestion menu, and press shift+del. Gone.
