Sometimes, it carries over login/password from another site (assuming you use the same password). It doesn't seem to matter which auto-complete entry you select to auto-fill passwords (but if you have the same login with a different password, it goes with the most recently typed password--non-duplicates don't suffer from this). It only seems to collect two of any field. Sometimes, even though it auto-filled the password, it asks if you want to save the password.

I don't know if this is exactly the same issue, but whenever I have to fill in my email address in a form, Firefox presents me with about a dozen identical lines of my email address. One would suffice.
I am also experiencing similar behaviour with Version 24.0 (also happened with a few previous versions). The duplicate auto-complete entries never seem to contain more than 2 of any given entry but will contain doubles of whatever values are entered more than once.
