The browser used to open a drop down box if I did a quick double click inside the empty field or as I started typing a word. Now nothing shows.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.type a common word in a field
2.or double click
Actual Results:  
there is no autocomplete words

Expected Results:  
a small drop down box should appear with commonly used words
Does it show in Firefox safe mode? Also, do you have any data to be entered in that field?

Hi, It does not work in safe mode either. My saved user names and passwords are also not coming up
Which browser and version did you upgrade from where this feature worked? To repeat what Tyler asked, do you have saved entries in the fields that you are testing?  

For the password issue, you can check Tools -> Options -> Security -> Saved Passwords... to see if what usernames/passwords are saved.

Ofcourse I have saved entries. That is the reason why I know it is not working. This worked prior to this current build.

I checked the stored passwords and they are all listed including the user names.
Can you double-check the setting to "Remember search and form history"?

The setting can be found at 
Tools -> Options -> Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history" 
-> [] Remember search and form history

Let me know if you have this checked

Hi, I double checked the settings and they are correct from the directions you gave me.
