How to delete email/passwords

When I get on a website and it needs my email and password.  I’ve mistakenly typed my password in the email box and I can’t remove the total of 6 email/password selections.  Everytime I go to these websites there are all my email/password mistakes.  Any suggestions as to how I can delete these?

You should be able to hover over the mistaken username in the list – see that it gets highlighted – then press 

Shift+Delete on Windows 
Shift-Fn-Delete on Mac
 
If that doesn’t work, tell me what operating system and what browser you’re using.

Thanks so much, Chris.  I’ve been dealing with this for a couple of years.  Even my computer repairman didn’t know how to get these extra usernames off.
