That's controlled through the browser's own settings. In the menu bar>Tools>Options open up the Privacy tab and simply change the "remember history" item to the "never remember history" alternate from the dropdown list of choices. That should remedy that for you.

You also can delete auto fill selectively:

start typing first couple letters, when auto fill suggestion will show up - took pointer over it, but do not click. When it will get highlighted press DELETE key.
