[Solved]How do I clear the suggestion text when auto filling out forms for email?

  • Just to be clear, I'm not talking about cookies, or the autofill that's built into the Opera browser for addresses, etc. It seems that each time I type my email address in an unsubscribe form box I get 2 saved pieces of text to pick from that pop up in a white overlay box.

    For example these two suggestion boxes pop up when I click on the box to type text in.

    1. johndoe@email.com

    2. johndoe

    The second piece of text is my name, but as an incomplete email address.

    How do I clear the second suggestion of text? I've tried clearing ALL browser cookies, etc. None of that helped. Normally, in other browsers only 1 suggestion will appear (usually the email address) when I try to fill a form out.

  • Try Shift + Del.

    In case doesn't work or many entries to clean, check this out.

    Entries are labeled, in case you wrote johndoe on an eMail box it's remembered and showed up.
    Some sites allow Username and eMail on login box, would be another reason.
