Simply Great.........

but i use two sets of username and profiles in web sites
1 set of username to hide my identity
the other one to with all my real names and stuff

but i can only set the field values for only 1 set of username
i can not set field values for the other set would it be possible to have
something like profiles
where user would create any number of profiles and each profile can have any number of field values and options to set and user can switch b/w profiles if he needs, this would be highly appreciated.............

Yes, I think I will add "profiles" in one of the next versions.

So far you can have a similar (but not as comfortable) feature by duplicating the rules and enable/disable the ones you want for the moment.

Autofill Forms contains a help system - but I guess you already read the part about <a href="jar:jar:https://blueimp.net/mozilla/xpi/autofill_forms-0.2-fx.xpi!/chrome/autofillforms.jar!/content/help/autofillFormsHelp06.xhtml">Custom rules</a>.

To fill out a checkbox or radio button, the "Value" in your ruleset must match exactly the "value" of the checkbox:
e.g.
Code: Select all
input type="checkbox" name="test" value="banana"

In this case, your fieldrule might be
Code: Select all
(?:test)

and your value must be
Code: Select all
banana

to match.

Sorry, I didn't make this clear:
The example
Code: Select all
input type="checkbox" name="test" value="banana"
means the code you find in the HTML source of the website containing the checkbox. I didn't surround the code with brackets </> as this would not show up here on the forum.

If you don't know how to find the related entry in the HTML source of the website, you might try Firefox DOM Inspector, which can be helpful in this case. It might require some HTML knowledge to get it right though.

If you give me the URL of an example Website plus an explanation which checkbox/radio button you want to check, I can give you a better example - and the code you will need. :)

If you like, post the code and URL of the website you use it for, so we can get a list of useful rules.
The last rule on the default set of rules for Autofill Forms checks the "autologon" checkbox of phpBB forums, e.g.

I go to https://blueimp.net/mozilla/Autofill%20Forms/
I download the add-on
But where is the Help file?????????????????????????????

I checked on the menus in Mozilla, did searches on these forums and the web, and zilch.

Somehow, I figured out that you had to add the button from View > Toolbars > Customize

But there's no way to edit the autofill form. Not even right-clicking the button will work, nor will simply hitting Alt + J.

WTF???????

To open the Autofill Forms preferences, do the following:
=> Tools => Add-ons => Autofill Forms => Preferences

On the preferences pane is a button "Help", which opens the help menu.


The next version will have an extended toolbar button with a menu containing the preferences.

The upcoming version is near finishing - I already implemented profiles and added a profile switcher (also included in the toolbar button menu).
You will be able to assign keyboard shortcuts for the Autofill Forms function, for the settings page and for the profile switcher.

I also added a button on the preferences page to display web form details to help creating new rules.

Currently, I'm working on a simple rule editor which will help creating new rules without needing any regular expression knowledge.
Afterwards I will update the help page and then release the new version. :)

Yes and there are several other extensions providing a similar functionality.
But none of them did exactly what I wanted, which is why invented this extension.
Compared to the Autofill function of Google's toolbar, the current version of Autofill Forms has some advantages:
- Autofill Forms is not active while browsing and therefore does not use any system resources
- Autofill Forms rules to fill in the form fields are fully customizable and can be extended
- Autofill Forms works not only with text input fields but as well with selections, checkboxes and radio buttons
- To protect your personal data you have the option to store all the form field rules encrypted, not only those for credit card data
The next version will add another feature not present in the Autofill function of Google's toolbar - profiles.

Try => Right click => Save as; and then install locally by => File => Open File
