it's ok.... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
but the problem with this one is, it does work only on *some* forms.
for others (like xenforo) it doesn't save anything.
I will look into the xenforo issue. Please report any issue at the support site so I can fix it which will benefit all users.
Extremely poor. Basically unusable due to flawed UI and functionality Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Been directed to this addon as an alternative to the excellent Lazarus addon that can recover every previously filled-in form (which has stopped supporting FF).
However this doesn't do anything of the sort. At least it is impossible for a reasonable user to understand how to operate it, in complete contrast to the intuitive immediate usability of Lazarus.
I do not recommend installing this addon.
How to filter values according to site Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Must admit I did not use this addon much until now, so this is more of a question than a review.
I just installed because I hoped there would be a solution for the following.
Many sites share the same field names in their forms - of course. And while sometimes it is good to find all "email" adresses entered elsewhere for new input, there are also fields like "login" or "username" where you really would prefer to only have those available used with this one site previously - mostly the one-and-only login of the site (not pick i out of lots of logins of other sites).
Did I miss this somewhere in the settings, or is it not possible currently? Could it be added?
About your answer (Thanks): where "at the bottom"? In settings, Tab Display (German localization, so I translate back), there is the second checkbox from above: "standard display option is 'only current page'"
Using this (probably tried that before) did not change anything: all values used on any page for a certain input-name are still shown at all of the pages as input values.
The main window displaying all formhistory entries has a checkbox named "Show only current page" ("Nur aktuelle Seite anzeigen") which will do exactly what you need. The preference setting you are referring to will actually check this option by default.
Alternatively you can also use the Advanced search option in the same window and enter the domain of the site you wish to filter.
My Power Fall Back for Form Recovery Rated 4 out of 5 stars
On a daily basis I need a simple form recovery which precisely identifies the same form and previous data entries.
I have to admit, for that I've chosen Lazarus, as FHC fails in many cases to simply fill-up same form again.
Nevertheless, FHC has all the features Lazarus doesn't provide - access any time for data without presence of original form.
4 of 5, although the work done and commitment of author deserves a 5.
Great but protected with a password, would be even better! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Given the private nature of most of the information collected, it may be worthwhile to offer the possibility (not the obligation) to protect the access of this extension with a password. Thank you anyway for this extension!
Great Add-On Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I love being able to clean up pesky auto-fills that I used once but never use again without having to clear all of the auto-fills that I use on a regular basis - don't know why FF didn't provide this option in the first place!
Excellent but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Simply GREAT Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It would be wonderful to have an editable field in the grid for a label or little comment. THANKS FOR YOUR JOB.

This addon will be ported to webextensions?
by Stephan Mahieu (Developer) on February 26, 2017·
Yes, I am happy to say that work on porting this extension to e10s and webextensions has been started."
Thank you SO MUCH Stephan.
I was afraid you'd decide to no longer support it, like so many Add-on developers are considering or intending. Form History Control is one of my favourite add-ons and has saved me SO MANY TIMES when Firefox crashed or I accidentally closed the wrong tab or firefox itself.
Form History Control is wonderful and IMHO its a "must have" Add-on.
Thank you for the positive feedback, reactions like this give me the motivation to keep maintaining and improving this add-on.

This extension saves my time many times! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very useful for restoring lost text, typed in forms after site errors, browser crash, and many other problems.
Very Very Good Rated 5 out of 5 stars
A Must Have Addon!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I don't know why this is not included in Firefox by default. I really love this addon!! It increase my productivity while submitting lot of data with my web application. I hope the developer always updating this beast because no other comparable addon even with other browser.
Never again will a Forum toss the post you are carefully in the middle of compiling . . . Rated 5 out of 5 stars
into the ether. Stephan Mahieu's Form History Control is, as others have said, _indispensable_. There you are, composing a post at someone's forum. But you're taking too much time. Or the phone rang and (horrors!) you've been talking. Or perhaps the pizza arrived and the intoxicating aroma of pepperoni overwhelmed you so much that you booked on over to your widescreen, popped a movie in, and began eating. Return to that forum 5-minutes later . . . or 5 DAYS later, Form History Control has your ENTIRE post, even its revisions!! Do _nothing_: If you've been typing, FHC has your back, operating quietly in the background. I can't recommend this Addon highly enough.
Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very useful add-on. Working great.
