why is autocomplete not working in firefox 4? the help no longer relates to the tabs. this means lots of typing when i am used to not doing any

Posted

the auto complete is not working on some sites eg hotmail login in v4. it used to work in all sites in 3.6 and earlier. the help page no longer repesents the reality of options/privcy/action field. is this a firefox or hotmail and ebay and paypal problem?

If you see more names in the Password Manager from that website then it is possible that the website uses more servers to spread the server load and in that case you may not see entries from other servers.

Yo tengo instalado webdeveloper y active la opcion de Formularios/Activar Autocompletado y me ha mostrado las opciones de mi formulario en Hotmail, el problema es que si actualizo la pagina tengo que volver a activar esa opcion, ahora el problema seria donde podemos fijar esta opcion de tal manera que siempre este activa, por lo pronto existe una solucion alentadora

Just downloaded "Firefox 5", crossing my fingers that it would fix the problem, and not create new ones. Didn't create any new ones, but STILL no remembering more than one user for the Hotmail log-in! Oh well. Still waiting. Off to Internet Explorer I go, to check my two e-mail accounts with one click! (p.s., NOT any of my settings, auto complete works even on the Firefox help page, when I click on the question space, multiple suggestions come up, so it's NOT a cookie thing, as I've been told by a thousand people!, I know, I've said 1 million times, STOP EXAGGERATING! LOL!)

It's WORKING NOW! I was supposed to get an e-mail if it was fixed, didn't get one, but started working intermittently a couple days ago, but today, every time I go to Hotmail, the drop menu appears with my two addresses! Awesome if the Firefox guy's found a fix, saves TONS of two-finger typing now! LOL!
