Automatically save what you type in Firefox

Posted by aamir khan

Have you ever filled out a comment on a blog or forum, only to have your browser crash, losing everything you wrote? Or maybe you have an itchy thumb and accidentally hit the back button. Frustrating, isn't it?
With a Firefox extension called Textarea Cache, you can automatically save what you type in a comment box or Web form and retrieve it, even if your browser crashes. Here's how:
Step 1: Install the Firefox extension, Textarea Cache.
Step 2: Fill out a blog comment or post to a forum.

Step 5: Review the text that was automatically saved and copy the text, remove it, or empty out the entire cache.

Step 6: To get quicker access to the Textarea cache window, hit CTRL+/ to display the Firefox add-on bar, then click on the Textarea icon in the lower right-hand corner.

That's it. Now you can automatically save the text you type over the Web. If you're concerned about Textarea Cache saving credit card numbers or passwords, worry not. The extension only saves text from large textarea boxes, not from small field boxes. Also, the cache is saved locally. Mozilla has reviewed the extension itself and given it its seal of approval
