Indispensable extension! WebExtensions support planned? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This addons saved me a lot of times !
Do you plan to use WebExtensions in a future release?
Yes, I am developing a new WebExtension based version. Please be patient because it needs a complete rewrite so it is a lot of work.
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.
About your second answer - seen at July 31: there seem to be quite some misunderstandings (on my side, but..) - I was not even aware of that "main window" (not sure if after installation months ago I was): it is not in the Firefox menu by default, needs to be put there by adjusting FF-menu, now put it in toolbar. Otherwise only in old-style menu (that shows up pressing Alt) under Extras.
And then yes, I can set that checkbox. Which means, that there is every value for every input-name found on the page. But not only the ones for the current website/host. There are listed a lot of values of all the different hosts that have such a field (same input-name). Yes, I can filter that there for the certain domain. But then for other pages the filter is active too it seems. If I read "only current page", I would understand that in the way that only values previously used for the current page's host are presented.
But most of all - I always spoke of the little value-choose-window that FF itself opens directly below the input field. I thought this plugin could filter the values presented therein. If this plugin can only be used with its own window, it is not what I searched for. My only wish is to have the FF selection of values presented for some "login" or "username" field filtered to the values used at that particular site I want to log-in. Seems quite obvious to me, but probably cannot be done with this plugin then. (Thanks for reading)
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
... waiting for a multiprocess compatible extension fot the 5th star :) .
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.
Intended e10 and Webextensions compatibility. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

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.
