Hi everyone, lately I've noticed that when I go to type in my info (name/address/email address/etc.), once I fill in the first line, it fills the rest in for me. This is a great feature but I recently moved and I want it to update with my new address and stuff. I looked in the AutoFill tab under Safari's preferences but I couldn't find a way to change my info. Does anybody know how to help me? Thanks a lot.:black:

Safari's autofill > Tick Using info from my Address Book card > Edit button.
Plus any of the others you might need.

If I remember correctly, it references your Address Book contact info.

Open Address Book and change the info there.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

I don't have Address Book. I uninstalled it the day I got my laptop cuz I knew I wouldn't ever use it. So I don't think I've ever used it or put any info in it.

Well, that's where Safari's AutoFill information is stored. (As well as contact info from Mail, iCal, iChat....)

So now you can't edit it. It's still stored there, but you can't get at it now.

You'll need to reinstall the Address Book using your original CDs and an app like Pacifist.
