    Can someone give me a quick rundown of how autofill works?

    Ive toggled Contact on, & Names & passwords on, but when i go to some user & password site, click autofill, nothing happens.

    Thanks

    usually when you start typing it will auto-complete the text field if it can...maybe they should call it auto-complete instead of auto-fill

    First you need to enable Autofill in Settings->Safari
    I currently have 'Use Contact info' off and 'Names and Passwords' on.

    Then, I visited several sites that required names, passwords, etc.

    Only SOME of them would spawn the confirmation panel that confirms if I want to save the password info for this site.

    As long as I get that confirmation panel, no problems.
    Only thing is, it doesn't happen for some sites. My bank's mobile site, for some reason, doesn't trigger the auto fill confirmation.

    When I come back to the sites that I did confirm, they are already filled in without having to click the little 'Auto Fill' button in the Safari spawned keyboard.

    I'm pretty sure that the fields will be completely filled out after you have confirmed the site.
