This simply doesn't work. It doesn't work even on the forms in this website, much less any other website. This one should be avoided. It's so bad it should never have been posted. Now I have to go uninstall it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5.1). 

Why didn't you ask for help?

Obviously you thought the default profile coming with Autofill Forms would fill out every available web form 100% perfectly.
Although it is possible to create such a profile, it takes a lot of time and testing. Resources I do not have at the moment, but I appreciate any support.

Anyway, the usage statistics for Autofill Forms here on addons.mozilla.org say it's used by over 50 000 users a day. Many users like this application even if the default profile is not perfect and despite the incomplete documentation.

Autofill Forms does not claim to fill out every web form perfectly out of the box. It is the customizability and flexibility which make Autofill Forms a powerful tool.

If you had asked for help you might have found out about the benefits you can get from Autofill Forms.
Instead you even want to deny other users the possibility to try it out for themselves ("It's so bad it should never have been posted").
You would be surprised that Autofill Forms had been implemented because a user asked for it. Its original intention was to extend the functionality of the Secure Login add-on, to be able to fill out fields automatically that Firefox Password Manager does not save.

I guess you just didn't take the time to understand the intentions or possibilities of Autofill Forms.

Too many wrong inputs on forms. Pretty useless. I uninstalled it.

The default profile is not perfect

The default profile coming with Autofill Forms is not perfect and will not fill out every form 100% perfectly.

I appreciate any support in improving, extending and testing the default profile.
Any help of developers with knowledge of web forms and JavaScript regular expressions is welcome.

Doesn't work in FF3 OS 10.5 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It does autofill forms, but as of right now on Firefox 3 and Leopard, I can't really get to any preferences, they don't show up at all. Really limits what can be done with the program.

Also adds an ugly button next to the address bar, would look nicer in the status bar. Maybe there's a preference for that, but like I said, I couldn't see the preferences.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5.1). 

Accessing the Autofill Forms preferences

Autofill Forms preferences can be accessed via Firefox add-ons listing or via the menu of the toolbar icon.

Excellent job!
This extension is exactly what I was looking for.
I buy a lot from Paypal and I have to fill those forms everytime I want to buy something. But not anymore!

Just Alt+J and it's all filled!

I can also create profiles to send to different addresses like "Paypal - Home" and "Paypal - Work".

Wonderful, really, really great!

Useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have found this add-on very useful. It functionally does what it claims to do.

Is there any way to have the product detect the page via a rule and have it automatically fill in the form without clicking on the pencil icon?

Autofill on page load

Currently this is not possible with Autofill Forms.
But it might be an interesting feature for a future version.

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Much better than Google Toolbar Autofill!

thanks for the previous help. the profiles don't disappear now that I close down before my computer crashes. I would like to know if there is a way to sort the profile names like is done with bookmarks.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5.1). 

Profiles sort

You can sort the profiles on the profiles tab of Autofill Forms settings dialog.
You can either move single profiles up and down in the list manually, or you can sort them by name with a click on the "Name" header bar.

This is best form filler i've found and have used it for some time now, but any chance you could put the "Display Form Details" button back where it was aswell, as not as prefer to use that than in the context menu?

Cheers :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5). 

Display Form Details

The next version will allow you to assign a keyboard shortcut and a mouse button (+ key combination) for the "Display Form Details" feature, though it won't get added back to the settings dialog.

The functionality of "Display Form Details" is not directly related to the settings dialog. This was irritating as nothing happened on the settings dialog if you pressed this button.
And the button "Reset all profiles" seems to be more important as many users managed to delete their profiles or important rules and didn't know how to get back to the default state. Having both buttons on the settings dialog bottom line would extend the width of the dialog too much.

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Too cumbersome to use. I know it requires the correct rules but every website is different and this add-on cannot handle it. I really don't want to spend all my time writing rules for every website. Not recommended unless you like to program. I'm going back to Google Autofill.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5). 

Website specific and general rules

You don't need to have any programming knowledge for website specific rules. Via the context menu of any form field you can easily add additional rules and complete forms as profiles.

Sure, the generic default profile will not 100% perfectly fill out every web form. But it can be adjusted to do so and it can definitely handle every webform because of its customizability.

Even Google Autofill does not claim to correctly handle all web forms:
"Note to web page authors: You can ensure that AutoFill will work on your pages by using field names defined in the ECML (Electronic Commerce Modeling Language) standard, found at http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3106.txt."
http://toolbar.google.com/autofill_help.html

I like it ... but!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is a good extension which saves me time both as a web developer and for day to day browsing ...

however, I do not find the management of Profiles is very intuitive.

Do I Apply? do I add? .... does anyone else agree or is it just me?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5). 

Needs Documentation

The thing Autofill Forms needs most is documentation.
As soon as I find the time I'll update the wiki:
http://autofillforms.mozdev.org/drupal/wiki/

Apply => Apply the new name (from the textbox) to the selected profile.
Add => Add a new profile using the name from the textbox

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 boxes

This 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:
http://www.mozilla.org/catalog/end-user/customizing/briefprefs.html#saving

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.

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 day

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.

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:
http://autofillforms.mozdev.org/changelog.html#v0.9.5
I've also already updated the screenshots, showing Autofill Forms version 0.9.5 on Gnome (GNU/Linux):
http://autofillforms.mozdev.org/screenshots.html

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".
