I want to view in a text document my saved form autofill data. I know in previous versions of firefox there was some .dat file you could access. I can't seem to find this file anywhere for version 4. Any help?

Do you have an "autofill" extension installed? Or are you talking about the standard "form history" data that Firefox saves?

Firefox hasn't used a .dat file for form history for a while now, it has been using formhistory.sqlite for that data since the Firefox 3.0 versions came out. You need an SQLite Manager program or extension to be able to view that type of file, but it doesn't display that data sequentially or in a table. A "query" needs to be done per type of data to be able to see it, from the little I have figured out about the "SQLite Manager" extension or program.

FANTASTIC! Thanks for the sqlite info that really helped. I did the add on and went through it and it was everything I was looking for. I didn't find what I was looking for but I know how to get to that information if I ever need to look for it in the future. Thanks again!
