I've gotten used to the autofill function on the browser/navigation bar. I've updated to v11.0 and I cannot find a tools option. Number 1, where is the tools button, and number 2, how do I turn on the autofill function?

Thanksa

I'm assuming you've upgraded from Firefox 3.6 probably? With Firefox 4 and newer, the Tools menu has been moved. If you click on the big orange "Firefox" button in the upper left hand corner of your window, you can see the "Option" button. That is the same option window you had inside the Tools menu with the older Firefox. If that doesn't work, press the Alt key on your keyboard. That will bring up a temporary menu like older versions of Firefox.

Now for your second option, I'm assuming you are talking about Form Autocomplete. you can read all about it in the newest version of Firefox at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Form-autocomplete
