Autofill for CC no longer works

Credit card information is no longer saved/autopopulated and I can't see anything about saved CCs in Browser Privacy settings where I could access it before. This has been a problem for several months now, but has never been an issue in the past.

Hi Allie, Let's get a better idea of what your settings are. Do you have Require macOS authentication to autofill, view, or edit stored credit cards enabled? If so, are you getting a prompt?

Hi Chris, thanks for your help. I don't receive any prompt to autofill and I don't have any options in the settings that speak to credit cards, though I know I used to have a section for that.

You can enable the form autofill and credit card autofill feature by modifying some extensions.formautofill prefs on the about:config page.

  • extensions.formautofill.available = "on" (String)
  • extensions.formautofill.addresses.enabled = true (Boolean)
  • extensions.formautofill.creditCards.available = true (Boolean)
  • extensions.formautofill.creditCards.enabled = true (Boolean)
  • extensions.formautofill.creditCards.hideui = false (Boolean)

Close and restart Firefox after changing these prefs.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. Clear cookies the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".

WARNING: modifying prefs directly via the about:config page can sometimes break Firefox or cause strange behavior, and there is no guarantee that this will keep working in future Firefox releases, so be cautious with modifying prefs if you aren't sure you understand their purpose.
