Solved: Firefox address bar autocomplete

Q: Solved: Firefox address bar autocomplete

Win XP Pro SP2
Firefox 1.0.7

address bar autocomplete is "on". I want to disable this "feature".

FF > tools > options > privacy > "save information . . " is unchecked

2. userChrome.css
http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/edit#css
This file sets the display rules for various elements in the Firefox user interface and is located in the sub-folder called chrome in your profile folder. As with user.js, this file does not exist by default, so you need to create it before you can start adding your preferences. There's actually an example file that exists by default, called userChrome-example.css. Basically, you can just rename that file by removing the -example part

I created userchrome.css, as above & added
/* Hide auto-complete in address bar */
#PopupAutoComplete, .autocomplete-tree { visibility: hidden !important;
display: none !important; }

/* Remove arrow from Address bar */
.autocomplete-history-dropmarker { display: none !important; }

My userchrome.css contents:
/*
* Edit this file and copy it as userChrome.css into your
* profile-directory/chrome/
*/

/* Hide auto-complete in address bar */
#PopupAutoComplete, .autocomplete-tree { visibility: hidden !important;display: none !important; }

/* Remove arrow from Address bar */
.autocomplete-history-dropmarker { display: none !important; }

/*
* This file can be used to customize the look of Mozilla's user interface
* You should consider using !important on rules which you want to
* override default settings.
*/

/*
* Do not remove the @namespace line -- it's required for correct functioning
*/
@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */
/*
* Some possible accessibility enhancements:
*/
/*
* Make all the default font sizes 20 pt:
*
* * {
* font-size: 20pt !important
* }
*/
/*
* Make menu items in particular 15 pt instead of the default size:
*
* menupopup > * {
* font-size: 15pt !important
* }
*/
/*
* Give the Location (URL) Bar a fixed-width font
*
* #urlbar {
* font-family: monospace !important;
* }
*/

/*
* Eliminate the throbber and its annoying movement:
*
* #throbber-box {
* display: none !important;
* }
*/

/*
* For more examples see http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html
*/

What do I need to do?
Thanks for your help.

A:Solved: Autocomplete in Firefox

Hi xblackrat,
Apparently in Firefox 3 autocomplete is an automatic feature that cannot be turned off, however you can delete stored autocomplete entries so that the autocomplete list does not drop down. Check out the following link -> Firefox Autocomplete Info

I am using Windows XP with Internet Explorer 6.0. on a new computer. Concurrent with initial use of this computer, the autocomplete feature in the address line of my email programs (Hotmail, Yahoo) stopped functioning. This also occurrs when using the Opera 7.0 browser. Autocomplete works in the Address Line, and the browser offers to (and does) remember login name(s) and password(s). Can you tell me how to recover the feature of autocomplete in the email address lines?
 

A:Autocomplete in address line

Open Outlook Express and go to Tools > Options and click the Send tab, see if you see anything like automatically complete email addresses.

I have just upgraded from Win XP Pro to Windows 7 Pro
I reinstalled my MS Office 2007 and backed up and restored my data, however my autocomplete of email addresses is no longer is there any way to retrieve those and restore to my new computer

Thanks
 

A:Coping the autocomplete email address

I believe you are referring to the .NK2 file.

In XP, it is stored here:

drive:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\<profile name>.NK2

and in Win7:

drive:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook\<profile name>.NK2

I believe it should just be a straight copy and paste job. Although you may have to start outlook using the following Run command:

outlook.exe /importnk2

I have only copied over NK2 files from '07 to '10 and you are required to start outlook like that for it add your NK2.

NOTE: If your profile name has changed (by default I believe it is 'Outlook' but I may be wrong) change the name of the NK2 to that of your profile.

To check your profile name, go to control panel, mail and then show profile and it should come up there.

I am running windows vista basic and internet explorer 8. I have tried multiple times to clear my browsing history using both the "safety" and "tools" drop down menu in internet explorer. The history under the "favorites" icon clears, but the history and autocomplete in the address bar does not unfortunately delete. I have tried to delete each item in the address bar separately, but every time I load internet explorer, the history is still there. I have tried to reset the internet explorer settings under the advanced tab, and I have also tried to reset the history under "control panels." I have tried to delete the autocomplete history under the content tab and the sites remain. I tried running CCleaner and am still having the same problem. The history is cleared, but the address bar with autocomplete stills shows the browsing history. I have run multiple antivirus and malware scans on my computer using AdAware, superantispyware, defender, symantec, and malware bytes.

I’m having a problem with Firefox’s autocomplete function in Google.

For Google I use Google.com//webhp?complete=0&hl=en.
This turns off Google’s automatic query & fill function, and then lets me use the autocomplete of searches I've done before.

But it stopped working yesterday for no apparent reason. Maybe I accidentally hit a certain key, I don’t know. And it will not remember any new search words that I enter either.

But if I use Firefox’s Help > Firefox Help and start entering a word in it’s search box, my previous searches show up. And it will remember new search words that I enter. IOW my data is still on the PC, just not accessible via Google like it was.

When previously transferring programs & files to a new computer I found the autocomplete form data stored in a Firefox profile file named Formhistory.sqlite. And this file is still there.

All the settings in Firefox appear to be correct. Again, autocomplete still works in Firefox Help but stopped working in Google.

Any idea how to get it working again?

A:Firefox Autocomplete

I'm having the same problem on chrome. The only thing I can imagine is that Google changed something again. I hope there's a workaround again though as that's how I get to most of the sites I go to.

(Yes I know it'd probably be easier to bookmark everything or start typing the url, but I'm more comfortable with typing in the first few letters of my favorite sites, clicking the autocomplete and hitting "I'm feeling lucky")

Hi Dr Dave,

I used your advice of speeding up Firefox--it worked, as they say, like a charm. Thank you very much. Not long ago I discovered this browser and fell in love with it. You obviously also use Firefox. Thus you are the guy to ask about the following problem: I'm unable to download anything using this browser because it, in a grip of paranoia, blocks all downloads. So far I haven't found any way to fix the problem. I will appreciate your help.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a basic form with an input element for email
2. Add autocomplete attribute with value "email" and name attribute with some random value (not email).
3. When filling this form, autocomplete doesn't work(no previously used values of emails are listed).


Actual results:

No previously filled values of email are listed even though we have provided autocomplete attribute as email.


Expected results:

Previously used values of emails should have been listed as we have provided the autocomplete attribute as email.

Hi,

I use Outlook 2002 SP3 extensively. I enable the "autocomplete' feature which fills in the email address automatically after the first 3 digits. Nice feature, but sometimes if you accidentally mis-spell the name, or the person moves to a different company, you can end up with many names for one person and some of them are wrong. Outlook seems to store these "autocomplete" names in some file, and not in the Address Book that can be found under "tools". In fact, may of the names aren't in there. When you reply to a message to anyone, that email address then becomes part of this "autocomplete" listing.

It's a nice feature, but I need to be able to go in and modify the file to delete or edit incorrect email addresses, so I don't accidently send it to a bogus address when in a rush. Can someone tell me where to find this file, and how to edit it correctly.

thanks,.
 

A:Outlook's hidden "autocomplete" address file

To remove one address from the list so that it won't be suggested again, open a new message and begin typing in the address. Use the up and down arrow keys to select the address to be removed from the addresses suggested. When the address to be removed is highlighted, hit the Delete key.

To remove all the saved addresses, delete the .nk2 file where Outlook stores them. The file is normally located in Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder for each Outlook profile.

Hi everyone.

I have been trying to clear my address bar info as I browse using Firefox.

I have tried 'clear private data' but cannot clear the drop-down bar as I can using IE when I go to

Internet Options>Content>AutoComplete>Clear web addresses(etc).

Is there a similar function in FF that will clear my address bar?

Thanks in advance. lennon:

A:IE "AutoComplete" option for Firefox?

Your Address bar? as in your history?

- Go to the Clear private data section as you previously did
- Press "Settings"
- Ensure "Browsing History" is checked
- Clear your private data again

If you're running FF3 (Everyone should be now, it's amazing) then i think you may be referring to the dropdown box which displays your bookmarks. To clear this you would have to clear your bookmarks, You may also have a bookmark history or "recently bookmarked" section in your Bookmarks menu, to disable this i belive you can delete it.

Also you may have a "Smart bookmarks" folder on your bookmarks toolbar, it bookmarks recent pages... To stop that delete the folder...
(or the entire contents of the folder)...

If you want rid of the bar completely i've found something which will be of interest:

Okay, this past week I somehow got WinAntiSpyware on my computer along with whatever other trojans and such it managed to get on. I downloaded a few different antispyware programs to try and get them all off. I used SuperAntiSpyware, ZeroSpyware, AVG Anti-Spyware, Panda Security, and I think possibly one other online one that I don't remember. It appears that all of the different trojan/spyware files are off my computer, but I'm still having a rather odd problem. I have never used the AutoComplete tool on the internet because I find it annoying, but yesterday it all the sudden started, though I'm fairly certain I did tell it to. Also, I have gone into Internet Options, Content, AutoComplete to try and disable it, but everytime I unclick all the checks, they show back up when I go back into the Internet Options and the AutoComplete doesn't turn off. I tried what was suggested on this forum http://forums.techguy.org/malware-removal-hijackthis-logs/476579-solved-hjt-log.html because I thought we might be having the same sort of problem, but it didn't help.

I'm running W98SE with IE6.
I have a few incorrect entries (specifically my e-mail address) that I mis-typed. The only problem is that every so often I select one of them in a small window (I try to remember to click on and check to be sure it's the right one- but every now and then I get in a hurry and choose the wrong one).
There are also several that I just don't want to pop up anymore. I don't want to clear the entire AC entries file (thats easy enough) because of all the different places with passwords and such remembered will have to be re-entered manually. Sounds trivial, but I would love to be able to selectively delete items.
After searching MS (and reading and learning WAY more than I need to Know) I finally came to a site that said you can't view the AC form history list. That's reasonable just because of the passwords and account info that you wouldn't want anyone else to get. I don't need to see the whole list- just lose the ones that I don't want anymore.
Any ideas, or do I clear it all and start typing again? Which would really tick me off if I did it again in the future.
Many thanks for any replies.

Microsoft Outlook somehow saves all email addresses that you send to, even if they aren't part of your contacts lists. When typing filling out the To section of a new message, Outlook tries to autocomplete with a huge list of email addresses that you have used in the past. I find it extremely annoying to repeatedly see an email address that I used only once several months ago and will never use again.

Where does it same them? How do you remove them?

I vaguely recall finding something within last few months that would allow me to review and (I think) manage the stored values that I have for all those (what I know as) Auto-Complete fields...but can't locate it on my system now...so asking for some pointers...I've Googled it but didn't spot any likely candidates...it may have been a web site or a java applet or similar...

The values that I'm after are the ones that IE stores for any form input field which are seen via dropdowns...not the userid/password combos, which I DO have a way to see, via a couple of programs that I have...

On my old PC, I had a program by PC Mag that did this in a way, but whatever it was I found recently was better and easier to use...but now I can't locate it!

I know that I can clear Autocomplete to some extent by going to Internet Explorer>Properties>Content>Autocomplete. But that doesn't clear what I presume is an autocomplete program that each search engine has. If I go to a search engine location bar and start to type in a search word, the search engine autocomplete program chimes in to suggest to me what it is I want to type in. And clearing out History doesn't keep it from doing this. I know I can open the drop down menu in the search engine location bar and delete an individual entry by highlighting it and pressing the delete key, but is there some way I can, in one operation, clear out all of the entries that the search engine autocomplete program has stored?

Not exactly sure if it's the address bar or a web page field that you want to clear but from what I can tell, it's a web page field you want to clear. Have you tried "ClearForms" under the AutoComplete settings?

The other setting that comes to mind is this, Start>Settings>CP>InternetOptionsAdvanced. Scoll down til you see "Use inline Auto Complete for web addresses" and remove the check mark. Click on Apply. Also, scroll down and look at the "Search from Address bar" options.

We are all familiar with the auto complete feature. For example if you have the following numbers in neighbouring cells, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 , you can drag the last cell, and Excel will autocomplete the next numbers as 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 etc according to the pattern. Similarly this is done with formulas, and changing the row or collumn adress as we drag.

Now here is an example:
| || A || B || C || D || E |
| 1 || 10 ||=A1*C1|| 4 || 9 || 6 |
| 2 || 11 ||=A2*D1|| || || |
| 3 || 12 ||=A3*E1|| || || |
| 4 || 13 ||=A4*F1|| || || |
| 5 || 14 ||=A5*G1|| || || |

Lets assume that the data 4, 9, 6, ... in the first row continue for a while, and the data in column A also contunues for a while.

What I want to do is drag cell B5 all the way down so that all my data points are multiplied together. Now the row number in the first number is going to update (the formula in B6 will be = A6*__, the formula in B7 will be =A7*__, etc). However, im not sure that the second term will update, meaning the formula in B6 will be = A6*F1, the formula in B7 will be =A7*G1, etc.

My question, is there any way to multiply all the row locations by the associated column locations?
 

A:Solved: Complex use of the cell autocomplete feature

Drag this down from B2 instead?

=A2*(OFFSET($C$1,0,ROW()-1))

Hi,

I would like to migrate my outlook 2003 autocomplete settings from one computer to another however I'm having some difficulties with this. Here's what I know and have done so far:

I have one PC made with an image and an email account with Outlook (via Exchange server)

On a newly imaged PC(same image as old one) I add in my email profile to Outlook and then paste the <username>.nk2 file over the default one.
I know that Outlook 2003 autocomplet settings are stored in:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\
Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\<username>.NK2

But it doesn't matter if I copy just this file or the whole Outlook folder here. Regardless of what I do my autocomplete entries are missing when I start up my Outlook account on the new PC.

All email on our computers are stored on the Exchange server but the settings, as far as I can tell, are all stored locally (things like signatures etc.)

So in conclusion, what I want to know is how to migrate the Outlook 2003 autocomplete settings from one PC to another.

Thanks!

I've an interesting new problem with Outlook that I cannot seem to find anyone else having.

After installing the Windows 8.1 update (this may not be related) my Outlook 2003 will not allow me to accept the suggestions in the dropdown provided by the autocomplete function.

The .nk2 file seems to be in good working order and only has around 400 entries. It suggests email addresses just fine, but when trying to accept a suggestion either by clicking on the dropdown or pressing enter either nothing at all occurs or I get a return. The editor window also seems to flicker when you do this as if it is losing the focus.

Anyone have any ideas?

A:[SOLVED] Outlook 2003 cannot accept autocomplete suggestions

Then this disclaimer:
If you are still using Outlook 2003 or previous, you can still install it on Windows 8 but it is not officially supported.

I have been unable to insert an address from my Yahoo email address book for some time now and I have decided to ask for help.

All I am doing is opening Yahoo mail and trying to compose a new email to send to someone who is already in my contacts. When I click "to:" or "insert address" my address book shows up. But when I place a check mark and try to "insert checked contacts" I go to this address on a blank page: http://us.mc1612.mail.yahoo.com/mc/kioskHandler

I see that this has been asked before but no one had replied and I can't find the answer doing a search.

Can anyone help?

I have Vista Home Premium 32 using Firefox. The version is the latest version of Firefox but this has happened in many previous versions of Firefox. (I was lazy [or in a hurry] and just typed in the address of the entity to which I was communicating as a work around.)

A:Solved: Yahoo email unable to insert address from address book

Concerning my post above: I turned on my older XP computer and I had no problem with inserting an address from the Yahoo! address book.

I compared all my settings in both computers and noticed that I had different settings relating to how pop-ups are handled. XP reminded me that the address book takes the form of a pop-up. On my Vista I had pop-ups opening up (?) in a webpage. That is the page which came up blank. After I have corrected the settings, I no longer have a problem.

I am running xp pro. I can not get an internet connection through my ethernet card. When I hook up my modem through usb it works fine but unable to utilize my full download speed capabilities. Hooked the modem up via ethernet to laptop and it worked just fine. The only thing I can find wrong that I don't know how to fix or what is causing it is the fact that the physical address of the card comes up as the broadcast address (FF-FF-FF-FF-FF-FF). Very strange. Can someone please suggest a fix for this (and dont say update the drivers) although it could likely be something as simple that I have overlooked.

I am using Outlook 2003 and run Windows XP.

When I create a new message I begin typing the name of the recipient and I would like it to match up with an address I have in my Outlook contact list. However, it does not read from there. It only seems to look at addresses that I have already sent to in the past. How can I get it to read from the address book? If I click on "TO" or "CC" it brings up another window with a list of addresses from my contact list. From there I can have it pull from the list. I would like to be able to do it withot the extra step.

Thanks!

In the past I've maintained my address book using the built-in Address Book utility that came with Windows. Once each year, I would import my Address Book (.WAB) file into Outlook 2003/XP. (I don't use Outlook for email.) Then I would use the Mail Merge feature in Word 2003/XP to make and print address labels on standard Avery label sheets to simplify address of my Christmas cards.

Since I'm now using Windows 7, and the familiar Address Book utility is no longer available, how can I print my address labels? I have both Windows Address Book (.WAB) and Comma-Separated Values (.CSV) files that contain my address book data. So, I guess I need to know two things:
Which program or utility (preferably free) can I use to print my address labels.
How do I import my address data into that program?

If it helps, I am already a user of Gmail and Google Drive. Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Address Label Printing without Windows Address Book

Hi Jim,
Assuming you still have Microsoft Office (any version) you can use the Word mail merge feature and use your .csv file as your data source - no other programs necessary. What version of Office are you using?
