How do I edit autofill entries
A website MultiSafepay.com has saved my CVV number in Firefox.
How do I edit the autofill data?
I can't get to the same payment page, to be in a position to delete it.
Most links on this matter refer to:
Options => Privacy & Security => Forms and Autofill
However in my Version: Firefox 98.0.1 (64 bit) running on an up to date Windows 10 this feature is missing or deprecated.
Can anyone say how I could edit/delete this specific entry, or point me in the direction of where this data is stored?
In the mean time I can't recommend using Firefox for entering critical security data, where websites can allow the storage of CVV numbers.
In the end I used DB Browser for SQLite:
I then opened formhistory.sqlite and on opening the moz_formhistory table I can then see in plain text under an a rather appropriately name fieldname my CVV.
It is shameful that Firefox can write to a database with secure information without allowing the user to easily delete entries.
Using DB Browser I am able to delete the entry and write the file. When I restart the browser "about:restartrequired" I can confirm the offending autofill entry is gone.Read this answer in context 👍 1

It is amazing how IMPOSSIBLE IT IS IN FIREFOX to simply delete a website from autofilling. I taught through an online website for a month before realizing it was a total scam, and quit after they ripped me off. But since I used the website frequently for that month, it seems to be permanently in my Firefox, so every single time I type in "pre", the autofill function sticks in the fcuking website for me to look at! (www.preply.com). It is really so very fkucing annoying! Tried every solution on Mozilla support and it's still there :-(
It reflects very badly on Firefox that in this shitty autofill function, you CAN NOT remove and stop and permanently delete a site from being autofilled. Why oh why is such a basic, simple necessity beyond Mozilla programmers?

I think you are referring to the suggestions that appear inside the address bar as you type. Try this:
(1) Open the Library window to Show All History (on Windows, Ctrl+Shift+H).
(2) Type enough of the site address in the tiny search box upper right to show all the current history entries for the site. Note: if there are zero results, you unfortunately need to visit the site again to make this work.
(3) Right-click a history entry for the site and click Forget About This Site and then confirm that you want to purge it.
This purge runs in the background, so it may take some time before the site stops being autofilled.
Hi, I have been missing the Privacy & Security > Forms and Autofill section, too.
I was able to enable it by goint to about:config, then adding my country DE (for Germany) to the setting extensions.formautofill.addresses.supportedCountries:
extensions.formautofill.addresses.supportedCountries = US,CA,DE
