Firefox not remember/save "Ajax" Form input history

Hi, Mozilla Team

I have been using both Firefox and Chrome for years, and I might say 70% of time is Firefox. There is only one thing (so far) that make me more comfortable using Chrome is its recall of "Form Input History". ( I am not a IT person, the terms I use below might not be accurate)

FF does remember form history, but limited to normal form (e.g. login page on most websites), but it is not able to remember or recall many Form input field history (e.g. Google Form). I am not sure if it is called "Ajax Form" or not. But many website forms are more like Google Form, which FF just couldn't recall the form history contents/input, and I have to manually type for the repeated form filling. Our company is using Google Form to record visitors info together with some staff particulars and locations info. The staff particulars and location info are very much repeated to a small group of staffs located at a specific location. However, use of drop-down list or checkbox is also not practical to our situation, as there could be hundreds of staffs using this form in many various locations. Hence, my team have to use Chrome, as it could remember the input history for staff and location particulars. (I am not asking for Auto-Filling, but selection of input history).

The relevant questions i search online / forum are all related to Auto-filling and Form History. Yes, my FF setting is correct, FF does remember a very very small handful of webpage, but majority not. Understand, it could be security concern (you may set disabled by default), but it would still be our option to use (if it is available). Thanks, and Happy New Year 2022 !
