No matter what web page I am opening Firefox automatically finishes my log in name/number even though I've asked for it to remain secure

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.General preferences
2.Security - select do not show password
3.I go to selected Web page and enter my to be kept private User Name and with the first letter or number entered the rest of the digits appear.
Actual Results:  
No matter what web page I am on that calls for a password, I enter my password.  On my secure sites I start the password and the rest of the digits automatically appear.


Expected Results:  
I expect that the any old site that calls for a password, it's OK to let the site remember it.  When I am entering my financial or other private site I don't want any other user to have access to this sensitive information/site.

I don't understand what you're saying. The whole point of password manager is to remember logins and fill them in where needed.

??? - There's no such setting.

That's how username autocomplete works.
