hi, there's a preference which is able to turn it off, though it might be just a transitional one and there is no guarantee that it will keep working this way: enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named signon.showAutoCompleteFooter. double-click it and change its value to false.

I think that this happens when a form is auto-filled. This is done via JavaScript (LoginManager) and you can't override or disable this. You can possibly disable auto-fill and set this pref to false on the about:config page

  • signon.autofillForms = false

Those are the usernames. Selecting one will prefill the password field for you with the appropriate saved password for that account.

If you don't want that feature, you can turn it off in the Firefox settings by disabling saved passwords.

Hello VICLOEWEN,

Unless I am totally misconstruing your question : this is what you are talking about :

I am just as annoyed as you are with this new feature, which (at least to me) serves no purpose and only gets in the way.

Unless one of my fellow contributors knows how to disable this feature (without disabling the saved logins option); may I suggest that you give feedback, using all (or one of) these links :

I set signon.showAutoCompleteFooter to false and it had absolutely no effect. All auto-filled input fields still have a yellow background. I find it really annoying. I'm on Firefox 67.0 (64-bit) for Windows.

@ Frustrated_John :

That preference is about the "View Saved Logins" feature, not about the yellow input fields .......

I think there are two possible approaches:

(1) Remove filters from all input fields (method in article)

If you have an extension like Stylus, you can create a new user style applicable to all sites that has this CSS code:

/* Remove filter on all fields */
input {
  filter: unset !important;
}

The possible problem there is that some sites might use filters to improve the appearance of forms and this would set them back to their default. Perhaps there are very few sites like that anyway??

(2) Override the filter only on autofilled fields

This is a bit more surgical, but more complicated to set up because you need to create a userContent.css file. The code would be:

/* Remove color effect filter on autofilled fields */
:-moz-autofill {
  filter: unset !important;
}

(I couldn't make that work using Stylus.)
