I don't like that Firefox knows my credit card number. How do I make it forget and not relearn this information?

When I buy things online Firefox often will try to "help me" by remembering the form information. It offers what it thinks I might be typing beneath the form cell. This is really handy many times, but it is also remembering my credit card number. That bugs me. Other people use my computer sometimes, and while I trust them, I don't want them being offered the option of my credit card number if they buy something.
Using a toolbar I can have my name, address, etc entered with the click of a button. So really I don't need Firefox to help me in this way. So how do I turn it off? I see the option in Firefox to clear "saved form information" but how do I stop it from re-learning this information?
