<h1>Forms</h1>

<h2 id="windows">The Form Manager</h2>
<div class="section">
  <p>Newer versions of SeaMonkey include a new form manager. Unlike the
    one contained in SeaMonkey&nbsp;1.x, the new form manager automatically
	stores field values for any form on any website by default. However, it
	does not fill in forms by itself (exception: log-in forms for which you
	stored a single set of log-in credentials). Instead it provides you with
	a list of alternatives to choose from if you do one of the following
	with a form text field:</p>
  <ul>
    <li>click the field twice with the left mouse button</li>
    <li>press the down arrow key when the field is focused</li>
    <li>start typing characters into the field that are a prefix of a stored
	  value</li>
  </ul>
  <p>To permanently remove a value from the propositions for a form text
    field, just select the entry in the drop-down that opens when using one
    of the methods described above, and hit the Delete key.</p>
  <p>Form data is stored in a file called <kbd>formhistory.sqlite</kbd> that
    resides in your <a href="profiles#location">SeaMonkey profile folder</a>.</p>
  <p>If you are searching for a way of managing form data like
    SeaMonkey&nbsp;1.x did (store and fill in complete forms), take a look
	at the <a
    href="http://xsidebar.mozdev.org/modifiedmisc.html#autofillforms">Autofill
    Forms</a> add-on.</p>
</div>

<h2 id="windows">Form History</h2>
<div class="section">
  <h3>Configure Form History</h3>
  <p>Form History settings can be found under Preferences/Browser/History.
    You can disable the feature or define for up to how many days form
	history data should be kept.</p>
  <h3>Edit Form History Data</h3>
  <p>To edit form history data in SeaMonkey, use the Data Manager
    (available from the Tools menu). Alternatively you may use the <a
    href="https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/seamonkey/addon/12021/">Form
    History Control add-on</a> to do the editing.</p>
