How Can I Change a "Remembered" User Name?

Postby sunnybun » Mon Apr 20, 2009 1:35 am

I attempted to register on a website so that I could leave a comment. After I completed the registration form and pressed "submit", a message told me I needed to choose a different user name as the one I had chosen was already in use. But, LastPass had already "remembered" the user name, and will not let me change it. Whenever I try to change the user name, LetPass keeps automatically replacing my new choice with the one I chose that was already in use. I tried to re-register and was not able to do that either because the website recognized me as already registered. I'm registered, but can't log into the website. Does anyone know how to circumvent this?

Other than this small problem, I love LastPass. It is a wonderful application.

Advanced users may want to try the Edit Form Fields link in the Edit Site dialog at this stage. Average users might want to delete the account and resave. [ from https://lastpass.com/help.php?topic=log ... mwebsite=1 ]
