I love the way the browser remember the text I entered into a form field - especially when I'm a developer. It saves lots of my typing time.

Though, sometimes there are unwanted remembered items and need to be removed. I don't know how to do that in Firefox and Chrome. Please help!

With both Chrome and Firefox you can just highlight the term you want to delete and hit the delete button.

I don't know about Firefox, but in Chrome, I've removed choices from the auto-fill drop-down by highlighting an unwanted choice by hovering the cursor over it and pressing [Shift+Delete].
