These two select elements have an explicit autocomplete="off", which we respect with address autofill but Chrome ignores. We also ignore autocomplete="off" for credit cards, so maybe this is yet another reason to align address autofill to credit card autofill.

The issue is still reproducible on Firefox Nightly 115.0a1 (2023-05-25).
"Province" and "Postal code" fields aren't autofilled and autofill can't be triggered via "Postal code" field.

The Province/Territory is still not previewed, but it is autofilled correctly now. Also, the same behavior is present for the Country/Region field. As you can see in the screen recording, the Country is changed accordingly and the form fields are updated, but the autofill is not working on the first try. The same behavior when autofill with a different Country/Region again. Nightly 116.0a1 (2023-06-19).

Province/Territory is not previewed because the field is not implemented with <select>, it is implemented with <span>. The same behavior happens in Chrome as well. We don't have a plan to support showing preview for this case.

I'll close this bug because we can now autofill Country and Province field
