    Usually an online form is autofilled with your account's address book data.

     

    Which version of Safari?

    Go to contacts and add your information.  If your name is already in contacts then click on edit and then enter your address in the correct field. Don't forget to click on Done when you are finished or you will just have to repeat the process again.

    Have you selected AutoFill under Safari Preferences?

    If not: Open a screen in Safari.

    In the upper left corner click on the word Safari

    A drop-down menu will appear. Click on Preferences.

    A box will open and on the top you should see:

    General - Tabs - AutoFill - Passwords - Security - Privacy - Extensions & Advanced

    Click on AutoFill

    Click on the one, two or all three of the choices available.

    If you click on edit, your address book info will appear and you can make any changes that may be necessary.

    AutoFill should now be working for you SnoLeopard. 

    Let me know if it works now, ok?

    I just found this under a community question "autofill not working properly":

     

     

     

    I had the following problems in the course of trying to resolve the issue:

    • Autofill was picking up the wrong contact info: e.g. work instead of home
    • Autofill was active, but would only fill in name and email after I deleted the work address, home would not be filled until I clicked on edit:AutoFill Form.

    After deleting "my card", I got "autofill was unable to complete the form" even though when I clicked on preferences: autofill:edit card. This pulls up the first card that matches the name of the logged in user. To fix the problem:

    1. Delete the card with the "my card" icon next to the name
    2. In system preferences, users, click Contacts Card:Open. This will create a new card with the userID as the name.
    3. Edit the card in address book
    4. Select the Card:Make This My Card menu. The icon will now appear next to the contact.

    I never figured out how to to control the order in which multiple addresses and emails gets selected.

     

    The system preferences contacts card is under users and groups in my system.  I just tried these instructions on my computer and it worked for me.  Solved the yellow box that would not go away problem! Yea!   Thanks snowyogi!  &  good luck SnoLeopard.
