Autofill no longer available???

Posted

My Firefox updated today 6/8/19 and there is no more autofill option for addresses. Where did it go and how do I get it back? I tried to download an add on but that doesn't work either.

Last time I checked, the Form Autofill extension checks that certain data matched up to the U.S. first, and only if that is found true does it enable itself. You can force it on as follows:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful or accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste formauto and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the extensions.formautofill.available preference to display a small dialog and change detect to on and then click OK

Does that work for you?

Check the settings during update to be sure they haven't changed back to default.
