I had 8 users displayed in WPforo Members.

I had 8 members in WP Users and deleted 3 test users.

When wanting to sign in again with an earlier used Username/mail address I was advised in the front end that this user already exists.

I noticed in "WPforo members" those users deleted before in "WPadmin - Users" were still there and when trying to deleted the users got this message:"User deletion is not allowed from this screen".

What can I do to fix this? (I run a WP multi site installation)

Please note, wpForo uses WordPress functions for deleting users. In other words, user deletion is managed by WordPress.

This should be a permission issue. You should make sure the account has a super admin user role, as only a super admin can delete the user in this case

As I've already mentioned, user deletion is managed by WordPress, so you should find the issue outside of the wpForo plugin.

Where in the db can I manually remove them please?

To manually remove users from the database, you can follow the instructions in this article: https://www.stevesims.com/how-to-delete-a-wordpress-user-in-phpmyadmin/
