Is there a way to get my browser to remember field values based on HTML field-ID ? Is there a plugin or something? What I want is if the browser detects a HTML field called "eyecolor" and I put cursor focus on it, I want the browser to give me a dropdown of things to select from that I have chosen in previous browser sessions.

Is this possible? Is there a plugin?

This is a native Firefox feature as long as the field doesn't set autocomplete="no".

That doesn't seem to be the case (in general). I do remember seeing something like what your suggesting in certain cases but you dont get a dropdown until you start typing. I'd like a immediate dropdown to appear. My guess is that something like this doesn't exist. – djangofan Jun 25 '10 at 17:16
Or you could push the down arrow button. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jun 25 '10 at 21:48

I think Firefox does this natively, but not very well.
Lazarus is probably what you're looking for.
