When i signed into gmail using internet explorer i inadvertantly signed in my
password instead of my email address and it popped up as a prompt each time i
signed in. I was able to delete it using the delete key so that it would not pop
up as a prompt.  when that happened using mizolla firefox I cannot delete the
prompt using the delete key so it keeps popping up.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.sign into gmail using something other that your gmail name
2.the next time you sign in, click on the box instead of keying it in
and all of the prompts will appear
3.If one of them is your password you are SOL. you cannot delete it using the
delete key and it will keep appearing each time you sign on.  this is a problem
when smeone else uses your computer

Actual Results:  
my password keeps popping up in the prompt. ( Iwas able to delete it when
signing in on internet explorer)

Expected Results:  
let me delete the prompt using the delete key

Shift-delete should remove a highlighted auto-complete choice.
Shift+delete does indeed. Just delete probably should instead, and that's bug 241774
