In Internet Explorer, individual autocomplete entries in a drop down box on a form can be deleted by using the down arrow to select a particular entry and then hitting the Delete key.

Is there similar functionality in Firefox? If so, is there something I need to do to activate it, or an extention I need to load? As a last resort.. are there registry entries I can directly manipulate?

The IE deletion method described above works fine on my computer when using IE, but does not work in Firefox (latest version).

Swami,

Many thanks for your fast reply. Shift-delete works perfectly.

Greetings:

Can we either get this thread updated, as this no longer works, or deleted, please?

Thanks!
