Release Small usability changes

Setting the preference to ON for overriding the default autocomplete with a custom one was a bad mistake on my part. It does not make sense to turn on autocomplete that gets its values from a database that for the vast majority of users is still empty. Only in time, when more formhistory data is collected by the new add-on, does it make sense to switch to the custom autocomplete.

Thus in this version the default override-autocomplete preference is turned off.

B.t.w. The database is initially empty because the new API does not allow access to the builtin Firefox formhistory database. Therefor this add-on will start collecting its own set of formhistory entries.

Also the popup that appears when you left-click the icon (also initially empty because no data collected yet) will now show all entries instead of only the entries applicable to the current active webpage. I believe this is more intuitive.

Changes in this release:
  • Show all data in the left-click popup dialog instead of just the fields for the active page (more intuitive)
  • Set the override-automplete preference default to false
