Changing passwords in Firefox

    How can I change a saved password in Firefox? I have some instances
    where I have changed passwords online, or entered the incorrect password
    the first time when going to a website I haven't been to in some time.
    Then, when I've checked "YES" I basically have told Firefox to remember
    the wrong password.

    I go into Tools/Options, Saved Passwords, View Saved Passwords and
    delete any entries I have for that page, but this does nothing. I'm
    still getting erroneous login information for these pages.

    So I'm missing something.

    Any help?

    Thanks.

    Tools, options, privacy, saved passwords, view saved password. Highlight
    and remove the ones you want to change and reenter them the next time
    you visit the URL. If there's a better way I'd like to hear about it too.

    Try restarting Firefox.
