Firefox can remember what you've entered in forms on web pages, also known as text fields. After you've entered something into a form on a web page (such as a search box), the next time you visit that page, your previous entry will be available to re-use. This article describes how to use the auto form fill feature and how to clear or prevent it from storing form entries.

To use your previous entry in a form:

  1. Type the first few letters of the entry into the form field. Firefox will display a drop-down menu with what you've typed into the form before.
    • You may see a list of all the entries stored for a particular form field by pressing the down arrow key when the field is empty.
  2. Press the down arrow key to select the entry you want to re-use. Press EnterReturn when the appropriate entry is highlighted. The text of the entry will appear in the form field. You may also use the mouse to click on the entry.

Deleting individual form entries

If you want to remove one of your previous form entries from Firefox's history:

  1. Click on the form field and press the down arrow key to display all the saved entries. You may type the first few letters of the entry to limit the number of entries displayed.
