I can't seem to get rid of the button on the toolbar for FF3. I remove it and it comes back on a reboot. Otherwise love the add-on.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5).
How to get rid of the toolbar button
You can hide the toolbar button via the interface pane of Autofill Forms settings dialog. Just check the option "Hide toolbar button".
The next version of Autofill Forms will also adjust this setting if the toolbar button has been removed by drag and drop, so it won't get added back on Firefox restart.

I have been using this for a while and it worked. Now, after the last revision, it stopped working. and they took out the button that shows the name of the input boxesThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5).
Please use the provided support options
If Autofill Forms stopped working for you please request support via the provided support options:
The "Display Form Details" feature has been moved to the content area context menu (the context menu of the webpage).
The next version of Autofill Forms will also add the possibility to configure keyboard shortcut and mouse button (or mouse button - key combinations) for this feature.

I use ubuntu and firefox with autofill. everytime my computer crashes (which is every day or so) I lose all my profiles that I have entered. I love this program but I hate having to re-enter everything every couple of days. Is there any way that I can stop it from losing all my info?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.4.2).
Firefox saves preferences on exit
Firefox stores preferences including those of Autofill Forms in the file prefs.js in your Firefox profile directory.
The file is overwritten as soon as you exit Firefox:
If Firefox or your operating system crashes before you can exit normally, the preferences won't get written to prefs.js and be lost, including any changes to Autofill Forms preferences.
So to make sure your changes to Autofill Forms profiles are saved you have to exit Firefox normally.
Another way would be to export your created profiles. If Firefox crashed you can just import the profiles exported earlier.
By the way I'm an Ubuntu user too, though neither Firefox nor my system is crashing regularly.
The rare times I suffer Firefox crashes are always related to plugins, not Firefox itself, e.g. when I have too many tabs loaded with Flash animations.
My operating system (Ubuntu) never crashes at all. Sometimes I managed to crash the X-Server, though only with non-standard applications running under Wine.
Anyway, if you suffer regular crashes there might be something amiss on your system, maybe even a hardware defect.
You should definitely try to get some help on this, maybe on the Ubuntu forums:

Amazing i love it so easy and simple.
I like the way you can add other things to fill out that Googles autofill does not have! Thank you and i recommend it to everyone .
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
this addon is amazing. it does just what it says it does. i dont know why there are so many negative reviews from people who couldnt get it to work. makes me feel smart. i feel sorry for those of you who could not figure it out but i found it very very simple. even the few fields it missed , like Gender, were fixed in a matter of a minute by using the rule editor along with the "display form fields" option. like i said this addon is amazing. sebastian you sir are my hero for the dayThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.4.2).
Great, but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Great extension. I do have a problem though that made the extension seem so out of place that I uninstalled it. It may seem like a small thing, but the icon looks really out of place on the Mac OS X theme for FF3. I tried to just remove the icon, and use the shortcut key to autofill forms - but frustratingly, if I removed the icon, after shutting down and restarting firefox, the icon is right back there. I've never had this happen with any other icon or extension. So for now I'll live without it; hope it gets fixed though.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.4.2).
Autofill Forms 0.9.5
The next version of Autofill Forms (0.9.5) updates the icon theme for Firefox 3 on Mac OS X (among a bunch of other improvements).
I've already finished work on it and currently await some translations to be finished before I can release it to the public.
You can read a preview changelog here:
I've also already updated the screenshots, showing Autofill Forms version 0.9.5 on Gnome (GNU/Linux):
To remove the Toolbar button of Autofill Forms persistently open up its settings dialog (e.g. via the toolbar button menu), switch to the Interface tab and check the checkbox labeled "Hide toolbar button".
ROBOFORM Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Roboform is 100x better!!! check it out! has never failed me once! and its made by a software company and not some dude at his house.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.4.2).
Autofill Forms is free open source software
Roboform is closed-source software and only available as freeware in a crippled version and only for Windows, not for other operating system platforms.
As a Mozilla Firefox users you should know about the benefits of open source software.
You might wonder how much of the work for this browser has been contributed by "some dudes at their house".
Thoroughly frustrating (OS 10.5) Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I did not consider myself a novice, but this app makes me feel like I am. I have wasted too much time that I didn't have to spare trying to make this thing work.
There are no instructions anywhere; what little I found in Wiki wasn't accurate; and even some of the developers tips in the comments didn't work.
Part of the problem might be that I cannot get the entire contents of the settings window to display. There's no scrolling, and manually resizing the window doesn't display everything.
I can't get any shortcut key I've tried to work, nor does clicking on the pencil input any data I've entered in my profile.
Not only is this app the complete opposite of intuitive, it appears, perhaps for my operating system, that it simply doesn't work. I'm very disappointed because I am sure this is the autofill app for me--if I could get it up and running.
This needs some ReadMe, FAQ, or some kind of clue as to how to make this work.
Autofill Forms needs documentation
Mandy, you're 100% right that Autofill Forms needs documentation.
I'm going to update the wiki - currently it's only a skeleton without much content - but it takes time, and at the moment my free time is sparse.
Eventually I will add documentation for every aspect of Autofill Forms, so everyone including novices will be able to customize it to their needs.
Though I do not own a Mac I have tested Autofill Forms on GNU/Linux and Windows and have success confirmations from Mac users, too. So it should definitely work on your OS too.
Protects your identity and saves time Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I really love this one. With just one click you can switch between different profiles. So I have one profile for serious form fillings (with my real data) and one for form fillings on sites where I have to expect spam from (using fake data). That's a very convenient way for all those crappy registrations you have to make for every little friggin forum or in order to use services that are only for registered users. Very often they use your data for other purposes and do not respect data privacy. Of course, users are starting to use fake data then. So do I, thus protecting me from commercial usage and spam.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.4.2).
Excellent Product Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have used this product for over a year and it just keeps getting better. It is completely customizable so that if you find a form field that the filler fills in wrong, you just go to the customizing screen and change a few settings...fixed forever! I can't figure out some of the poor reviews that people have written... they will not find a better form filler. Google toolbar filler is nice, but I heard that Google uses your information for their own 'marketing' purposes when you use it and I don't like that. This form filler has always worked for me, especially now that I have got it customized the way I like it. I do a lot of on-line contests and when I hit the autofill icon, the contest forms are completely filled out correctly...very sweet. Please keep the updates coming!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.4.2).

amazing. Truly the bestThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.4.2).
I do love this extension. But why should you love it too? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Why shouldn't you use Autofill Forms? Let's say you're a person that rarely does it need to fill-in a form. Most things required are email, name, address, phone, company.
For you the best, easy to use and fast extension would be Google Toolbar. It has a good auto-fill feature, for most uses. Simple to use, basic, it's from Google, try that.
Why should you use Autofill Forms? But let's say you need to go one step further - you may have some forms that you need to fill-in regularly. Let's say you have to fill-in a lot of forms. Let's say you want to customize the way the Autofill works.
For such a person, the Autofill Forms works great.
It's not that intuitive, not as simple to use as Google Toolbar, but once you learn how to use it, it gives incredibly good results. You can make the Autofill fill-in about every imaginable field. You can fill in forms in multiple tabs. For lots of forms with repetitive fields, it's a lovely extension. If you are surrounded by forms in your browsing experience, try this extension.
What's the greatest feature of this extension? It's actually the greatest feature of Mozilla FireFox too: customization. You can make the extension work for you specific needs. There are keyboard shortcuts, there are customizable fields. The extension even helps you create specific site-rules.
Why do I use it? I want to end my review by saying this: I've first tried an Autofill for Internet Explorer. After some time I decided I want to do something to that Autofill for FireFox. But first I wanted to check the existing extensions for FireFox to see what's already in there. This is how I discovered Autofill Forms. Basically, it had all the features I wanted to give myself. And much more, that leave me puzzled - how can you think about that?

This add-on does not work correctly. I typed in the correct words to input to forms, but it doesn't fill in those words. It uses the words I put in, but puts them all in the wrong spots.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.4).
Depends on the forms and your customization
If Autofill Forms is able to fill out form fields correctly depends on the forms and the willingness to customize the add-on.
I'm about to update the documentation which will explain this and the fact that there is no autofill application that will fill out every web form perfectly out of the box.

It will only partially fill forms out most of the time,then not always in the correct location.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.4).
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I filled out my info. Already while filling it in, there were ui glitches. I went to a site, and it would autofill. I went to the help and there were no step by step instructions, just summaries of what a button does. The help was very cryptic. Google toolbar is much better, I'm waiting till it comes out for firefox 3.0This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.3).
Rework of the documentation
I'm currently working on the help for and documentation about Autofill Forms. You can find the new Wiki here:
If you have problem with the user interface, just post a support request to the mailing list:
Many users find it intuitive, while others have more problems. But if you ask you will always get help.
And unlike others, Autofill Forms is really completely customizable and free and open source software besides.
Never worked Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Sorry to say this one never worked. I'll have to go back to my old form filler.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.3).
Just ask for support
Autofill Forms might not fill out every web form 100% perfectly out of the box, but it definitely works.
And it is completely customizable, so you can make it fit your needs.
Please ask for support on the Autofill Forms mailing list so I can help you out:
