How to save only few forms and search history

Posted

I only want to make Firefox save my personal e-mails, and never save anything else (if someone used my computer and used his e-mail address for example).

If you want to auto-fill forms you can use try this addon Auto-Fill forms. I haven't tried this and don't know if this supports saving of information per user, instead of per-site.

Another option is to protect your profile with a password and let other users use a guest profile. This extension, which, strangely is not part of the Addons.Mozilla seems to do that Password protect profile in Firefox.

I am not 100% sure why this extension is not part of the Addons site on Mozilla, so I request you to try it out first before installing it for daily use. And needless to say, please backup your profile data before you try these extensions.

Thank you

Hello,

Can you please confirm if you are looking for this - be able to save the passwords only for your email address, form data for only those sites that you are using. If any other user is using Firefox, then their data shouldn't be saved - even if they are visiting the same page.

Is that correct?

Thank you
