The form manager needs to be accessible in other ways besides Edit > Fill in
form. A right click would be sensible.  Many sites provide users with pop-up
windows that require form data.  Often, the form manager has the data, but the
user has no menu bar to click on.

You might be interested in bug 143881.
Side note Bug 143881 Comment 5 says you can double click a single input in a
form and fill it in.

Bug 143881 deals with a similar issue (indeed a comment in it points out this
particular problem.) Fixing one would fix both.

Unlike 143881, which seeks a better or more intuitive way to fill in forms, this
refers to a case where there is no other way to do it.

Bug 143881 Comment 5 refers to double clicking which will, unlike the Fill In
Form menu item, prefill a single form field with a single value, even when
multiple values for that field are saved.  Often this will result in no way of
prefilling a field if the default value for double click is not the desired
value, even if the Form Manager has saved the desired value.

While not quite a duplicate, perhaps these should be consolidated.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
