firefox stopped autocompleting email addresses on my address book

Posted

Hi, in the past I had a perfect autocomplete functioning on my FF. Suddenly it had stopped working despite the fact that my address book is intact, and the option of autocomplete is selected. How can this be amended? Thanks.

You posted in the Firefox support fora queue. Firefox doesn't do email, it's strictly a web browser. Firefox does not have an "address book" of saved email addresses.

If you are using Firefox to access your mail, you are using "web-mail" such as Yahoo!Mail or Gmail. You should seek support from your "web mail" service provider or a forum for that service.

If your problem is with Thunderbird, let us know and we can move this thread to the Thunderbird support queue.

Current Firefox releases have support for using form fill to fill addresses.

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Forms and Autofill

Are you using this feature?
