Firefox Browser.Formfill Wildcard Madness

Posted on 2010-08-19

Is there a way to restrict browser.formfill searches to only phrases where the beginning exactly matches the text you typed, instead of somewhere ( *wildcard* ) in the phrase?

Ex:

If I type "ser" in the field, I don't want it to display:

Manageable Service Warranties
Honorable Sergeant Wilkins
Don't Serve Until Slushy
Serial #
Service Categories
Service Manual

only:

Serial #
Service Categories
Service Manual
etc...

because the text ser is in the beginning of each phrase, not somewhere in the middle.

Any ideas of how to do that? Any help is most appreciated.

Cheers!
Ben

I don't think that's possible, but I'll try to keep looking around.

to confirm, you are talking about the Forms on websites, not the Address bar, correct?
