How to Make Mozilla Firefox Not Remember a Username

By default, Mozilla Firefox automatically remembers usernames and passwords when you log into a website. Sometimes, however, you may wish to disable this feature on a public computer or a computer that you share. To prevent Firefox from saving usernames disable search and form history, which prevents the browser from saving any variables typed into form and search fields. You can also remove username/password combinations already stored in Firefox.
