    I'm still fairly new to Mac and I found a small issue that is driving me crazy. When composing an email in Yahoo mail, the address box does not auto populate as I type in the names in my contact list. I thought it might just be Safari causing the problem, but I downloaded Firefox and the problem continues.

    When I use any other computer, my contacts automatically populate in the To: box. Is there an easy fix for this, or is this something Apple has overlooked?

    What do you have checked in Safari > Preferences > AutoFill?

    Just move to Gmail or MobileMe. That'll solve your problem. :p

    I have all three options checked. It is supposed to use my contacts list to populate.

    I do have a Gmail account and it works the way it is supposed to. I've had my Yahoo account forever so I still use it as my primary email.

    In your Safari preferences, go to Security and make sure Enable Javascript is checked.
