In the dialog box for Privacy & Security/Browser Privacy -- saved addresses -- the phone number automatically converts to +1XXX###XXXX format. This fails on some merchants websites. Almost always the +1 (international) must be removed and only the raw AC and phone should be used. Any fix or has this changed in later versions of FF?

I've had the "automatically fill in addresses in forms" box checked ever since it appeared in Preferences.
FF has a dozen or so variants of my address stored, that I've typed into various forms. My FF location is and always has been en-US.
Never once has FF automatically filled in any of them.
