Remove Firefox Auto-Suggest Entries

Firefox saves stuff that you type in its address bar or web forms. So if you enter some wrong data (eg. your username in a login form), that is saved. That data appears in a small drop down the next time you enter your login.
Here's a way to remove those unwanted entries.

1. The list appears as you type something.
2. Select a word by pointing you mouse cursor to one item in the list.
3. Hit Shift + Delete from your keyboard.

That's all! You can remove entries from the address bar, web forms and the search box on the top-right of the screen.
