Behaviour of "Fill in Browser"?

Is there a way to make the "Fill in Browser" shortcut ⌘\ fill the username and password but NOT submit them to the website? I have a use case where I want to edit the information before submitting it to the website.

Thanks!

    Hello @ooga! 👋

    Autosubmit is part of Universal Autofill and there isn't a way to disable it at the moment. That being said, we do have a feature request open to look into adding the ability to disable Autosubmit and I've added your request there. Out of curiosity, can you expand on your use case a little further? I'd love to know how disabling Autosubmit would help your workflow since that will help us push for the feature to be implemented.

    I look forward to hearing from you. 😊

    Thanks for the quick reply, and apologies for the delay in mine.

    For some websites, I store the first part of the password in 1P, let it autofill, and then I type in the final part of the password.

    For example, if my password* for some website was 38value_puzzle+book, I would store 38value_puzzle+ in 1P. Then, when I go to the website, I click on the username field in the browser and choose the entry from 1P, and let it autofill the username and 38value_puzzle+. Last, I would append book to the password and hit the Enter.

    I'd love to replace "click on the username field in the browser and choose the entry from 1P" with "use a keyboard shortcut** like ⌘\".

    Thanks,
    Sameer

    *Not a real password of mine.
    **Even better would be "double click my Apple Watch"!

    Hey @ooga,

    I apologize for my misunderstanding - I'm not sure what you mean here:

    I'd love to replace "click on the username field in the browser and choose the entry from 1P" with "use a keyboard shortcut** like ⌘\".

    If you don't mind, may I ask you to further elaborate on what you'd like to see? Thanks so much.

    I look forward to your reply.

    Hi @Alvin.L_1P

    I’d love to have a keyboard shortcut that populates the username and password fields on a webpage, but does not submit the form.

    Hope that’s clearer!

    Hi @Alvin.L_1P @Dave_1P

    I hope I've clearly explained what I'm trying to do (and why). Is there a way to do this with the current version of 1P, or is there a place I can submit a 'feature request'?

    Thanks,
    Sameer

    @ooga

    Thank you for the explanation! It sounds like you're "salting" your passwords by appending additional characters to what is saved in 1Password itself. Are you doing this as a security precaution? If you are then my colleague Zak wrote a post here where he explains why we don't recommend the practice: https://1password.community/discussion/comment/626536/#Comment_626536

    is there a place I can submit a 'feature request'?

    I can confirm that I've added your vote to the internal feature request that we have open to disable auto-submit for Universal Autofill. 😊

    Thanks Dave for submitting this as a feature request. Appreciate you linking Zak's post. But, like @Ryan7hompson , I want the extra security salting adds on top of the existing 1P features I already use (e.g. auto-lock).

    Interestingly, when I use 1P in Firefox it behaves exactly how I want it to - it populates the username/password fields but does not submit the webform. No idea why 1P behaves this way in Firefox and not Safari (which I use far more frequently).
    Might be worth noting, I don't have the 1P extension installed in Firefox.

    Thanks,
    Sameer

    Hi @ooga:

    We were able to replicate that behavior with Firefox on our end, so we've filed an issue to take a closer look.

    In the meantime, if you'd prefer using Autofill to not submit, adding 1Password to Firefox would result in the Autofill shortcut no longer submitting. Let me know how you get on with that!
