Don't save new autofill addresses

Veröffentlicht

I want Firefox to autofill my saved addresses, but I don't want it to automatically save new addresses.

I fill in all kinds of forms, with variations of my name, address, etc., and with other people's info. Firefox saves those variations and autofill becomes effectively unreliable, filled with dozens of erroneous entries, until I manually delete all but the three I want to keep.

It seems silly that there is one checkbox to control both the saving and the filling. Can we get a sub-setting where I can uncheck “save new addresses that I enter”? Or is there an about:config option for it?

Thanks for replying, but I already do that often, and now I'm specifically asking for a way to not have to do that.

Open Firefox. Click the Menu button. Click Preferences. Click Privacy & Security. Scroll down to Forms And Autofill. Click Saved Addresses. Select an address to delete and click Remove (Figure A).

If you want to edit an address, select the address and click Edit. In the address edit window (Figure B), edit the address accordingly. Once you've finished editing, click Save and you're done. How to disable Autofill

If you've inadvertently enabled Autofill and would rather not allow Firefox to store those addresses, delete them all from the Autofill Address window, close the window, and then uncheck the box for Forms And Autofill (Figure C).

Thanks, but again, that's not what I'm asking.

I do want to fill forms with the existing saved addresses. I do not want to save any new addresses.
