Userid and password automatically filled up

Recently when I log on to CM my userid automatically shows up when I place the cursor there and when I click on it my password automatically fills up. Has any of you ladies experienced this? How do I prevent this from happening? I'm using Firefox.

  • I told mine to remember me, so perhaps you did the same?

  • I have fire fox as well, and I set it to remember mine. Yours might have updated, and it automatically did it...

  • That's because you told firefox to save it at some point.
    Change your password, Log in again, and when it prompts you to save it again, choose NO if you're worried about it.

  • OP here. I don't recall having told Firefox to save/remember my userid or password. Anyway I tried changing my password and log in again but it doesn't prompt me whether to save or not.

  • So you don't want the convenience?

  • So you don't want the convenience?

    If it's doing it on CM, it's probably doing it on other sites, too, and that's not a convenience, it's dangerous.

  • Click on Firefox settings or Help. Ask them why. Find out how to change it.
    We know you're the OP. It tells us.
