autofill adds trailing space to each field

Posted

When autofill adds text to web forms, it adds a trailing space to each entry. This triggers checks for mal-formed email and phone numbers. I have to manually delete the trailing space from each field.

Is there a way to fix this?

Chosen solution

This might be about a new line character that is added when you paste.

You can check this pref on the about:config page and try 3 0r 5 if the default (2) isn't working.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window

It was 2, I changed it to 3 and it seems to be good.

Now if there was a way to let the edit field know it has text (some forms will not acknowledge text in the field until you manually type something in them)...
