No "autofill forms" section under Privacy/Security

Posted

I'm trying to save my address/info for autofilling forms, and online it says to save this in the "autofill forms" section under Privacy/Security, but my "Privacy/Security" section in Preferences doesn't have an autofill section - any ideas on where it may be hidden or why I don't see it?

There are other things that need attention.

The System Details list shows that you have an outdated Flash plugin, current is 32.0.0.270.

You can find the location of a plugin on the about:plugins page and in the pluginreg.dat file in the Firefox profile folder.

You can download the latest NPAPI Flash plugin for Firefox on this page.

Make sure to remove checkmarks for including unwanted additional software.


The Auto-fill feature is only available for the US region and possibly some other regions. If you do not see this section then you are likely in an unsupported region.

Users in other regions can enable Form Auto-fill by modifying a pref on the about:config page. Close and restart Firefox after changing these prefs.
