Web forms - why are some boxes yellow?

  Brittasnorfolk 21:47 12 Aug 2004

On one pc, certain fields on web forms appear yellow while on another pc, all fields appear white. ANyone know why? Is it a browser setting? Can I stop it?

Does the one with the yellow fields have Google Toolbar installed?

As Salinger points out, it's the autofill bit in the Google toolbar. Go into options and you can disable it

Hi Salinger

Both Pc's have the Google toolbar installed

Hi Christmas cracker - sounds like one Pc has it enabled and another not. Is this what you mean?

Sorterd! Many thanks Salinger/ChristmasCracker - it was the toolbar.

If you go into options on the toolbar, you can chose

1) if you have the autofill button or not

2) Click on the "more" tab and check if "automatically highlight fields that autofill can fill"
