I couldn't find the form auto-fill feature in settings > privacy & security. Is there any way to enable it without installing any extension?

Changing extensions.formautofill.available from detect to on, in about:config page fixed the problem.

Why did such a basic feature disappear from options in the first place?!

See also this pref on the about:config page for the basic form fill feature.

  • dom.forms.autocomplete.formautofill = true

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".

It's same as your screenshot. Are you using any extension for autofill?

No extensions here. Have you tried downloading another version just to see if it has the settings?

May also try logging into another windows account to see if that account also is seeing the same thing.

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful or accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste extensions.formautofill.available and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the extensions.formautofill.available preference to display a small dialog and change detect to on and then click OK

My browsers all have detect, but it still works.
