One of the best form fillers for firefox Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Works great, would have been even more awesome with more feature in the context menu
I need some help Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Awesome add-on, I love it, but would like to ask a question or make a suggestion if what I'm trying to do isn't already a feature.
I've come across some pages with multiple text fields with the same name values and id values, and I find that autofill decides to fill out all of the fields with the same info. However, I need to fill out each field according to their name (i.e. the text above the text field). I have tried numerous expressions to no avail. How to do this or can it be added in an update?
Hi, please go to the support group (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/firefox-autofill) and provide a URL to a sample form so that I can troubleshoot this for you.

An excellent add-on which serves the void between "save passwords" and "save form fields". There are apparently a number of places on the web where a field's contents won't be saved by EITHER of those two built-in functions in Firefox - hence Autofill to the rescue!
If there's a certain web page you frequently use which always requires you to fill out certain form fields (which aren't picked up by Firefox) then this add-on is for you. Recommended!

Pretty well done program. My only wish is that it worked with IE External Tab.. Meaning when I open a tab in the IE engine in FireFox it would also work. I have to use this because I have a couple webcam login pages that IE only.
SO much trouble... Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I spent SO many nights entering information, only to have to re-do them again and again. When I saved a profile from specific pages, they each had ^fname$ where you would have it input your first name, but whenever I input this information independently, it would conflict (somehow) with my email (name), and my street address conflicts with my email (address). When I finally got my name to show up the other night, it stopped after less than an hour, and I had to go in and re-enter my name, address, and email all at the same time in order for anything to work; it was when I entered things in separately that things would conflict/disappear. Then my information would flash on the screen but quickly go away, so I gave up.
But I've been having problems with Firefox pages constantly loading to where I can't fill in forms, it will skip pages altogether, and if I try to go back, it will just go forward again, stuff like that. I just checked online and someone suggested changing the theme in Firefox, but that didn't correct my problem, so I deleted Autofill; my problem with pages loading erratically resolved immediately.

So cool...used to be. Now since I am on W8x64 (if that matters at all) it does forget few fields form 10. For example I have picture and description in 10 languages - always 2 or 4 are missing. When I type them and "Add.." then it works until I restart FF then some other fields are missing..... Any idea?

Useful but needs better UI Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This add-on is very useful, and relatively easy to use especially when compare with Autofill Form. However the UI needs improvement, e.g.
1. There has no scroll bar in the Form Fields screen. I have to enlarge the windows to see all the fields and buttons at the bottom of the page.
2. There is no way to copy a profile.
I'm using version 3.6 of this add-on in Firefox 21 on Mac OS X 10.8.3
Hi Ah Hang, if you don't see a scrollbar, then it's likely a bug in the Mac version. Since I don't have a Mac to test with, maybe you can help me fix this bug. Please go to the support page (Google Groups) and post a screenshot and I will look into this issue. Thanks for suggesting the "copy profile" feature -- I will add it on my to-do list.

very nice! hope hotkeys will come soon! and some profile managements options are also very important to me, because i have more than one user name in different sites.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.5).

Great tool. Targeting form elements by name with regular expressions makes filling the proper fields easy. Also, should be noted that the "text field type" targets both input elements of that type and textarea elements.
I think the add-on is more suited for developers and not that much for the regular users, so have that in mind too.
Might be good with more help Rated 1 out of 5 stars
No info. how to do simple things like: integrate it into Firefox; create a new profile based on an existing one;.... no help to speak of at all! Nothing is obvious.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.5).

Need Firefox V5 or lower Rated 3 out of 5 stars
You need Firefox version 5 or lower to make it work error free every time. Find that version or lower and you should be fine.
STUDY the example codes/rules and you should be able to figure out what to write in the auto fill form to make it fill stuff for ya.
Couldn't get it to work Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Many times after rebooting I had to reenter the autofill information which never seemed to autofill a Wb page.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.5).
Gut - aber nicht gut genug Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Ich nutze "Auto-fill" seit einigen Monaten und bin im so halb zufrieden.
Etwa 50-70x am Tag muss ich Formularfelder ausfüllen. Dabei erleichtert mir AF die Arbeit deutlich.
Allerdings darf man nicht in den Glauben verfallen, man könne dies Add-On unbeaufsichtigt seine Arbeit tun lassen. Die Kontrolle und zu häufig auch Korrektur der Daten ist unerlässlich.
Nach vielen Versuchen in den Einstellungen habe ich nun einen Stand erreicht, der dem Zweck dieses Add.On am nächsten kommt.
Immer wieder aber kommt es auf etlichen Seiten zum Komplettversagen.
"Straße und Hausnummer", "PLZ und Ort" sind für das Tool ein unlösbares Problem; manchmal werden 30 Formularfelder mit der Email-Adresse ausgefüllt und müssen mühsam von Hand geändert werden.
Das größte Problem steckt aber zweifellos in der Festlegung der Ausnahmen in den Einstellungen. Die Anleitung dafür ist wirklich nur was für Profis und für Normalkonsumenten völlig unbrauchbar. Die jeweiligen Adressen müssen nach unverständlichen Regeln umständlich umgeschrieben werden. Viel Bastelarbeit ist garantiert. Leider bringt da auch weder das Add-On eigene Forum, noch der Support irgend eine Hilfe.
Fazit: Für "GUT" muß es deutlich "BESSER" werden!

Time for an update? Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Been using this add-on almost a year, and for the most part works very well as advertised (80%), injecting values into forms without user intervention. Very convenient, no firefox performance issues experienced.
It could however use an update, as there are some UI elements that could be improved, and other elements that have developed over the last year:
-for example, input type="email" is not supported and will not automatically fill. I think type "email" is part of the new HTML 5 standard. For an example, see amazon.com's login.
The following comments and suggestions are based on this add-on's stated purpose to fill forms automatically, without clicks, without user intervention. That agenda is what (at least for me) separates this add-on from all the other form fillers, all of which require clicking. However there are some elements I see are working against this idea.
In order to maximize automation, I almost never use the existing "profiles" feature. If you're not familiar with this add-on, the profile feature let's you "organize" your stored form values into different profiles. However, only one profile is active at any given moment (there is an "All Profiles" setting, but that has a problem too and I'll get to that).
Thus when visiting a site/form, only values stored in the currently active profile will be injected automatically. If you're in the wrong profile, you have to first switch to the right one, then the form fill's in.
As you can see, this profile feature thus creates clicks - and works against the add-on's mandate. Personally, in order retain no user intervention, I must use one big profile with many entries in it, in my case I've named that profile "Primary", and never switch to other profiles.
Now, there is also an "All Profiles" setting (seems to be a virtual profile so to speak), but I can't use that either - because alas, there is one usage example where I DO use profiles - which is when I need to store multiple values for the same form & site. So let's say for example, I had 2 different accounts on the same site. I'll save the most common login I use into my main/primary profile, and store the less common login in an alternate profile. In this case, without profiles, I have no reliable way to execute the alternate login. So these cases, which represent probably 1% of usage, do validate the profile feature.
BUT you can see the problem it creates with the "All Profiles" setting - if I use it, which value would it give me in these scenarios? Value #1 or value #2? It's a haphazard or at least a problematic result. The bottom line is, I personally can't use all-profiles either.
-So considering the above, it would be great to see a reevaluation of profiles. Not to get rid of them entirely, but to change the general design concept to the idea of a "primary" profile that's always on (max auto-fills). So for example, I'd only want to execute a secondary (alternate) profiles on a "once-per-click" basis, rather than permanently "switching" to that profile. So in your primary profile, to be able to click an alternate one time, but your primary remains active. Max automation.
-Also and more importantly, a profile (primary or other) can get very large, and there is no current way I can find to filter the view when trying to organizing some specific entries in it. At present, I must slowly scroll through all the entries to find the ones I want to change/tweak. So adding the ability to type a search word and the UI then hides entries that don't match (same as most email filtering features these days), allowing me to find and focus quickly on the specific entries I'm looking for within my profile.
-Another UI addition, this time on the wizard - when you first "capture" a new form, you fill in a form by hand, right-click and tell autofill to "create rules for this form" (store the values), it will grab every field on the entire page. Often that includes search bars, "remember me at this computer" fields etc. Usually I only want a specific few fields from the page. For this reason (combined with how unruly a large profile can get as mentioned previously), I always at first save a new form to the "unfiled" profile so they're isolated from all the other entries, then I remove each "junk" field I don't want, then I finally move the fields I actually want to save over to the primary profile. SO - the addition of an initial screen to first pick the actual fields you want to save, before they get inserted into whatever profile would expedite this process and be handy.
-Finally, as I understand it, the stored form values of this add-on are not encrypted. I would feel a lot better if they were, passwords for example shouldn't be stored without encryption.
Overall, great concept, and I would say 80% there. If it could round these final features out, would be a perfect 5 star, and a very unique form filler at that.
