My Firefox updated today 6/8/19 and there is no more autofill option for addresses. Where did it go and how do I get it back? I tried to download an add on but that doesn't work either.

I use industry specific program called resnexus for managing my bed and breakfast. Every time I search for a guest in the resnexus tab, it adds them to my saved addresses under "Forms and Autofill". I have already created 2 form fills and don't want Firefox to automatically add new items. I want to keep autofill turned on as I do lots of online petitions. Any suggestions?

In my previous version of FF (52 ESR) Location Bar Autocomplete was controlled by [options > privacy > address bar suggestions]. in current FFv62 only seems to enable it, but not control it's settings. Specifically Location Bar Autocomplete ONLY works for addresses already visited that session rather than for bookmarks as set.

My current settings are

[options > search > search bar] = use address bar

[options > search > *] = all other options disabled

[options > privacy > forms and passwords > *] = all disabled

[options > privacy > history > custom > remember browsing] = enabled

[options > privacy > history > custom > clear on close ( enabled) > settings] = all enabled but cookies and data section

[options > privacy > address bar] = only bookmarks checked

[about:config > browser.urlbar.auto] = all true


is this bugged or what do I need to change to get it back to autocompleting bookmark urls?

Firefox won't autofill bookmarks in url bar even after complete, clean uninstall

I completely uninstalled firefox. Deleted the mozilla folders from Roaming, Local, and LocalLow. I installed firefox anew, and bookmarked several sites as a test before syncing my profile again. And Firefox still. won't. autocomplete.

It's driving me insane. I don't want to switch everything over to Chrome, but without this functionality I feel like I'll go crazy. The browser.urlbar.autofill option in about:config is set to true, I've tried deleting my profile folders, restarting in safe mode does nothing.

The worst part about it is that the bookmarks show up in the suggestions, just sitting there. Taunting me. But they're never inserted into the actual urlbar. I'd have to click down in order to access it. Yes, I know. One extra button press. First world problems. But I NEED this to function to work properly.

Okay, first off, I'm infuriated. I'm infuriated with the stupid obstacle course it took me to even GET here! From the chain of suggestive meaningless support threads to the baffling loading of Thunderbird to even get me a password reset because I forgot the password to yet the millionth damn account I had to make to do one simple thing! Thanks, Firefox, you're making me regret even bothering with you and I've been with you since Day 1! I've had problems with you about the performance of the browser, to now just clogging the internet with garbage like making accounts just to get support!

The main point that started my stress with Firefox, is how I couldn't clear Autofill. I don't want a laundry list of names that are outdated and not in use. I've done everything I thought of, like going to Privacy and Security settings and clearing out the data. I've had CCleaner, clean out the data thoroughly. I've rebooted Firefox a few times and the names are still there! I don't WANT them there!

What have you done?! Why do you feel the need to enforce an arbitrary necessity onto those who prefer to have the options available to them on whether or not to clear such data? Why do you feel the need to make this so trivial? Am I stuck with an autofill form that I can't clear?! Forcing me to have to see a long ass list of things that are outdated/not in use?

This is your idea of IMPROVEMENT? You've lost your touch, Mozilla!!
