How to stop Yahoo email from displaying my username on login?

  1. Apparently when logging into Yahoo once, I didn't succeed in clicking down to the password space before typing my password. Now when I go to type in my username it not only shows the correct username but also the incorrect one with my password included.

    I've tried to find how to delete that one entry but can't. Also could only find how to stop showing my username at all by removing all site usernames & passwords from the memory. As my wife also uses this computer, I don't want to do that either for myself or for her.

    Is there any way to delete just the one incorrect username that also contains my password?

    Thanks!

    I've sometimes entered at my Email login page my email address then not Tabbed to the next line and typed my password. To delete the incorrect version I start to type and the type assist brings up the selection (I have now have three two correct and one mistake). Using the down arrow I highlight the mistake then press 'Delete'
    Hope this helps
