    How do I get my Address Book to stop trying to auto-fill fields every time I type in the first few characters in a new field? For example, every time I start to enter a website in the homepage field, as soon as I type "www" the thing auto-enters the first web address it already has in its database.... :confused:

    Wait, is the autofilling occurring in Address Book or is it happening in other apps, but using Address Book data? :eek:

    It's happening within Address Book. The fields are trying to auto-fill with data from previous Address Book entries, based on the first few characters I type into the field.

    That's bizarre. I can't replicate this on any of my machines, all running 10.4.9 and the latest version of Address Book. Maybe tell us a little more about your system and any third party software hacks and apps you may be running. :)
