Auto form fill

Recently found this. Thanks for supporting PPC!

Running 10.0.7 on a dual G5. Is there any way to get it to auto fill forms, similar to the way Safari does it; i.e., filling the entire form it at once?

Searched but couldn't find anything.

    Hello John, I don't think this is possible for Firefox/TenFourFox the way Safari does it because Safari uses data from the OS X Address Book. You could try and enable "Remember search and form history" in Preferences>Privacy>Use custom settings for history(dropdown), but you'd have to fill in the form at least once.

    Thanks for the reply, Chris.

    Unfortunately, things have been set as you suggested since the
    beginning. The only thing I've found is a double-click in a field will
    bring up the previous entry for that field, but nothing I've found
    will fill the whole, previously visited, form.

    Hm, maybe the folks at can help with this. TenFourFox behaves exactly like Firefox in this respect. Or maybe there's an extension that does the trick.

    Yep. This, unfortunately, is not our bug. You might ask at Mozilla's support site.
