  1. Email addresses being retained in private browsing


    Using Firefox private browsing. Went into a website yesterday for the first time. When I clicked into the 'Sign In' box, there was a dropdown list of several email addresses that have been used on this laptop at different times, but never with this site. These were hotmail and gmail addresses. I was not logged in to google at the time, nor to anything else. I tried to delete these email addresses from the 'Sign In' box but they will not delete. This also happens on other sites including facebook. Only 2 emails have ever been used on the laptop to log in to facebook, yet it automatically offers four or five. All the ones offered are ones used by me, but I have never saved them on any website login. I believe that private browsing should not save anything when a session ends, so I do not understand why these email addresses are showing. It seems that they are being stored somewhere on the laptop but I have no idea where to look for them to delete them. A second laptop, that also uses private browsing on Firefox,does not have this same problem so it is something about the specific laptop. Any suggestions welcomed

    :)

  3. old email addresses

    Thank you for updating me HA.111

    Here is the step to remove that old email address.

    Start typing an email address into the “To” field. As soon as you see the old email address being recommended as one of the potential candidates, use the down arrow key to scroll through the list of suggestions. Once you highlight the old email address, type the delete key. In many cases, this will actually remove the entry not only from the current list of suggestions but from future suggestions as well. You may even find that as you mouse over the drop-down list the highlighted item will have an “x” to explicitly allow you to delete it.

    Just do this step and your good to go.

    Continue to have an escellent day HA.111

    Best regards,
