How to add a ‘paste email’ option to Firefox [Tip]

Some websites have login text boxes such as user name, email address and password. It would be great if browsers had options with which to paste email addresses, passwords, user names etc into login text boxes. At the moment Firefox, Chrome, IE and co don’t have that option, but you can copy your email or password into text boxes with Paste Email Plus.

Paste Email Plus is an add-on that stores textlines, which you can then paste into textbox fields. This is the Paste Email Plus add-on page [1]. There click on the + Add to Firefox button > Install Now and restart Firefox.

Now click on the Open menu button, Add-ons and press the Paste Email Plus 5.0 Options button. That opens the window in the shot below. There we can add email, passwords and other textlines to paste into text box fields.
