any time i enter the word gmail on my imac (snow leopard), whether i'm rypinf iR as a username, or even just now when i was typing this message and entered the gmail phrase, it automatically puts in the following.
in dropbox name is love to garden/email firstname.lastname@example.org/pasword love*****garden
this started doing this after i created a dropbox account. it's strange, like i've built a macro, but i haven't. any thoughts on this? it's annoying beyond belief!

Start by checking the cookies that dropbox has set. One of them will be essential, ie. your gd/b user account info data; and perhaps one other that identifies your country and region. The others are likely to be ads or, as you've found, auto-suggest or auto-fill.
I suggest you delete all gd/b cookies, and then reenter the gd/b website, being very selective about which cookies to accept. Probably 3 out of 5 are superfluous and for promotional purposes. It looks like you have a rather intrusive one which has latched itself on to gmail.ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
