Hey Bitwarden community! A new, highly requested auto-fill option is now available for all cloud users to fill in login credentials faster than ever. The inline auto-fill menu appears inside relevant form fields and displays a menu of associated online account credentials. Please report any issues here
I’m not sure this is a “bug” so I didn’t want to report it as an issue, but with inline autofill enabled, when you autofill from the extension icon, the cursor focus goes to the username. It used to go to the password field. I add characters to the password after it is auto-filled, so not having the cursor stay on that field is a big inconvenience. Similarly, it would be nice if the cursor focus went to the password box when using the inline autofill.
@RichLux Thank you for your feedback. The behavior you outlined is expected. When auto-filling from the inline auto-fill menu focus is returned to whichever field that is in focus when you complete the auto-fill action. If you focus a form’s password field and then auto-fill, focus should return to the password field after atuo-filling the form, allowing you to add your additional characters.
We will keep monitoring user feedback around this behavior to understand if additional changes should be made.
Unfortunately, that’s not happening on all sites. At Ally.com, even if I complete the inline fill from the password box, the focus goes back to the username.
Also, it doesn’t explain the change in behavior of auto-filling from the extension icon where the cursor focus used to stay on the password field, but now it’s going back to the username. (Try capitalone.com or citi.com)
Thanks for the suggestion! The Bitwarden team is excited to be expanding on the inline auto-fill menu functionality in 2024 to support additional interactions from the menu, with user convenience in mind.
I’m glad this feature is here, I’m also one of those who can now start recommending Bitwarden to others. So thanks a lot!
As others mentioned, it is quite minimalistic currently (not bad for the first release), I’d also like to see all those features like filling credit cards, Identities, generating passwords, etc out of the autofill icon.
A different thing I’m missig though is there is no option to show the icon all the time. Not only when the field is in focus. Showing it all the time actually helps to see those fields on sites that focus more on design than usability. Also, som option to fill either the username or the password for fields where it is not obvious (for Bitwarden) manually.
ATTENTION: There is a small bug that still needs to be resolved for this feature to fully work. It’s related to a form filling bug I reported where not all forms or logins (the new inline auto-fill) get filled in. You can see more info about the bug at the following:
For now, if you come across a login/form that doesn’t fill in or gives you the new inline auto-fill option, try reloading the web page. You will then have the new inline auto-fill option show up and will also be able to fill in forms that didn’t fill in before by simply reloading the web page. Hope this helps until Bitwardin has a fixed version available.
Big thanks to the team for the new inline auto-fill feature. It’s incredibly efficient and makes logging in a breeze. Love how intuitive and seamless it is, fitting perfectly into Bitwarden’s robust security framework.
Excited to see what’s next. Kudos to all involved in bringing this to life!
Thank you for confirming (in your previous comment) that there is an expectation that Ctrl+V for pasting TOTP codes should work after using the new inline auto-fill for login credentials, and that the team is in the process of debugging this.
Perhaps someone else will make a feature request for inline auto-fill of TOTP codes, since it is evidently not already on your internal roadmap. Personally, I am very content to keep using Ctrl+Shift+L for all my auto-filling needs.
There are other TOTP auto-fill improvements that are of higher priority to me than implementing inline auto-fill for these fields:
Add a greater number of keywords for identifying TOTP fields on different websites;
Implement custom linked fields for TOTP auto-filling.
