User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux i686; rv:67.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/67.0

Steps to reproduce:

Some companies use embedded forms from CV collecting companies to accept requests from candidates. Autocompletion does not work in such forms. For example, see this form from greenhouse.io form builder:
http://www.getwellio.com/careers/?gh_jid=4097823002

Just browse through job postings on stackoverflow.com/jobs or weworkremotely.com, for example, and you will find such embedded forms in 10-%-30% of job postings redirecting user to company's website.

Actual results:

Autocompletion does not work for name, email etc fields.

Expected results:

Autocompletion dropdown should appear in appropriate fields.

I've tested this issue on several machines Ubuntu 18.04 & windows 10 on the latest nightly 69.0a1, release 67.0.2.
Inserting any data in those fields -> submitting the form -> returning to the form -> clicking in the 1st input ->result: no autocompletion will be triggered. This result will happens as well in Chrome browser.
For now, I will set a component for the issue and further I'll wait for a dev opinion about this issue.
