Whiteboard: [form autofill: V2]
This issue is caused by the incorrect detection of `address-line2`. The regexp of address-line* should be able to recognize the correct address lines.

The patch attachment 8940498 [details] in bug 1423204 can fix the heuristics issue in this bug, but another issue is about previewing and filling. I have to look why not all fields can be previewed or filled.
The preview and filling issue in Profile and Preferences are caused by the inputs with the value as its placeholder, and previewing or filling feature will skip the inputs with `element.value`.

BTW, Chrome gets worse experience since the placeholder won't be clear when I click on an input.
Per comment 4, this bug is caused because the website falsely uses `element.value` as placeholders. Since Form Autofill by design won't fill any input containing a value already, this bug can't be fixed eventually. Therefore, close this bug as WONTFIX.
