I have email addresses coming up in my autocomplete that I really don't recognise. They're definately nothing I've ever written. It's like someone else is using my browser.

Is this evidence of a security breach of some kind?

Is it garbage/gibberish or is it legitimate but incorrect data?

Definitely should audit how your account could be used. If your autocomplete database was corrupted I can see it filling in garbage but I think even this has protections against it (sqlite internal checking?)
