You probably know this problem when you fill out a web form. You just entered a lot information in this form, it took you minutes to do so and after hitting the send button the website crashes. All entries gone!
Same happens when you try to leave a comment on a blog. You write a book long great comment and then nothing, just a blank page after you hit the send / submit button. If you go back, the comment field is empty. How frustrated is that?
That also happens quite often because of time out error.
Today I will show you a little Firefox Add-on, which will help to avoid those “shit happens” things. It’s called Lazarus: Form Recovery, and saves automatically your entries while you are typing. If the site or your computer crashes, just go back to the page and hit the right mouse button and click “recover form”. Everything will be there, how wonderful is that!
Another short tip is how to delete entries in the recommend list for a textfield. Firefox saves all entered entries you did before in a form and listed them as recommendation if you fill out a form the next time. That can be very useful but also very annoying. Why? Because if you mistyped your name or any other entry quite often, those entries will be also in your list. Fortunately it’s very easy to delete those entries, just go with your mouse to the mistyped entry so it will be marked blue, press the “Delete” button and it is gone until you mistype something again.
