Passwords and stuff..

specifically the password manager..

hey, you know when you put the wrong name into the password box on IE8, it keeps on showing as an optional identity when you return..?

and you end up with loads of incorrect identities in the drop-down box..??

- well, just hover your cursor over the invalid entry and press the "Delete" key
- this removes the incorrect identity from the listing..
