I want to make contacts list available to visited websites such as the nytimes.com

Posted

When I visit nytimes.com and wish to email a contact, it would be helpful after typing in the first two letters of the contact's email address automatically appear so that I would not have to type out this information.

Chosen solution

Is this a feature of the NYT's website that you can use to forward an article to someone's email address? I don't think it's possible to give a website access to your contacts, nor would you want that due to security implications

Website may be using autocomplete=off to prevent Firefox from saving and filling form data.

You can remove autocomplete=off with a bookmarklet to make Firefox save form data in such a case.

You can also look at form fill extension to see if any support saving form data in this case.
