Opera stores and recalls commonly used name address and numbers. Why not FireFox?

Opera has a 'form filling' feature that stores and recalls many useful items like name, address, email addresses, numbers (like credit card numbers) and supports typing them by offering to complete an item from its stored data.

This facility is sorely needed in Firefox. The stored data is supplied by the user once and recalled by Opera as needed in filling out a form.

Open Firefox, bring up the browser options window, and go to the security tab. There is check box here that allows Firefox to remember search and form history. Be sure that box is checked, and that you allow Firefox to keep cookies and browsing history. This should enable Firefox to record your input data for later use.

The form autocomplete function in Firefox is very rudimentary.

To have a true form fill feature like Opera has you need to install an extension, like this one.
