I have done everything to keep autocomplete from filling out my forms...it continues to do so. I have gone to privacy settings, reset firefox and nothing seems to work. There are pages that I am forwarding to others that have my private information and would like to continue to do so but nothing is working! Help!!!!!

Hi,

You can update Firefox and deselect Remember search and form history in Tools (Alt + T) > Options > Privacy. You can then Clear Now the Form and Search History with Time range to clear set to Everything via Tools (Alt + T) > Clear Recent History.

Firefox latest

If problems persist, you can reset Firefox and start afresh with the above setting.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.
