I use keyboard text replacements on Mac OS (under System Preferences/Keyboard/Text) and they are present in Safari and Chrome forms. For instance, typing a message in GMail I can type 'sig' to be replaced by 'NAME' . Can't do it in FireFox. Is there a way?

I don't know if there is a way to integrate Firefox with that feature of MacOS.

If you don't find one, you could look at the following add-on, which sounds useful but I haven't tried it myself: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/auto-text-expander/
