Autofill Forms is an optional add-on for the Firefox web browser. Autofill allows you to quickly fill in commonly-encountered web forms (e.g., login, checkouts or registration forms). You can assign different form fill-ins to specific keys on your keyboard. Different profiles can be created to manage multiple users and different fill-in preferences.
