    Firefox used to remember my name, email, URL, and so on when I comment on blogs. Now it doesn't anymore--even on my own blogs! Or, rather, it doesn't on my intel iMac, but it still does on my G4 iBook. Any ideas on how to fix?

    would u elaborate ur problem?

    one possible situation i can think of is that when firefox remembers more than one info for same form on certain page, it will not show anything by default until u click the form and press "down" or until u input first letter.

    Sure, when I comment on a form, it used to automatically enter my name, email, and URL, like in the attached picture. Now those fields are blank.

    No, it doesn't show up when I do any of those things.

    I'm having exactly the same problem, and it is a pain in the a*se! Would love to know how to solve it.

    Okay, I think I partially figured it out.

    Under Preferences --> Privacy, the box entitled "Remember what I enter in forms and the search bar" needs to be checked.

    However, this doesn't seem to eliminate the problem completely -- it suggests entries but doesn't automatically fill the dialog with what I entered before.
