Perhaps the autofill hidden preference isn't enabled. With locales other that US the rollout of autofill was staged over a few versions; but I thought the rollout was completed by now.

Type about:config - accept the warning. In the Search field at the top type extensions.formautofill. and view those prefs.

Both of these need to be enabled . extensions.formautofill.addresses.enabled and extensions.formautofill.creditCards.enabled

Won't appear in Options > Security unless the pref is enabled.

If they aren't enabled double-click the one/s that aren't enabled to 'toggle' the pref Value to enabled, then restart Firefox. Then view those prefs in Security.

nope - in chrome i filled out one form with all my buying data and from then on out all i had to do was pout first letter of my name in the name field and the entire form auto filled on almost any new page. no matter what i do firefox seems to refuse to do this.

Forget about what Pkshadow posted, you shouldn't need and extension now-a-days to have the autofill functions.

Look at the 1st screenshot I just posted and verify that is where you are looking to access where you can add / view autofill data under the heading of Browser Privacy > Forms & Passwords.

The 2nd & 3rd screenshots show what the Saved Addresses & Saved Credit Card 'windows' look like for viewing / adding your personal data.

BTW, I have never used Chrome so I don't know that their rendition of the autofill feature is, but I am confident that the interface in Chrome is different than what is in Firefox. But it should work the same on websites; both browsers do follow the W3C standards.

ic the the-edmeister thinks he knows everything then does not know Chrome, when it can be found in google images to compare.
