Hello, I noticed that Firefox stores what is entered into forms and forms on websites and that I cannot find the setting to prevent Firefox from saving what I insert in forms to be able to suggest them in subsequent times. Is this feature missing in Firefox? If not, where can I find it?

Chosen solution

There is a global setting for form history that unfortunately doesn't let you decide which sites to save form entries for and which sites not to. However, if you need it, you need it, so I'll link to that article just in case:

Control whether Firefox automatically fills in forms

If you don't use the built-in form history feature and you need more control over data saved from forms, you could take a look at an add-on. For example:

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/form-history-control/

Hi UnashamedSpace, you may be able to prevent Firefox from storing what you insert in forums and forms in the site permissions. Let me know if I can assist you further.

in the website where the form is located, in the lock simbol near the URL bar, it shows that there is no permissions associated with the website.

Yes, however, if you click the arrow, then click more info, then go to the "Permissions" tab, you can see that some permissions are automatically allowed. You can disable those.
