Weird "title" in my form fields

  1. I just looked at some of the form fields on using Firebug's "Inspect Element" and discovered unanticipated refs to the PayPal Plugin I use in Firefox:

    <input type="text" tabindex="3" class="medium" value="" id="input_4" name="input_4" title="PayPal Plug-in can fill this form for you. Click the PayPal button in the toolbar." style="background-color: rgb(221, 234, 248);"/>

    Is this a problem? Does everyone's browser see this, or only if they too are running the PayPal addon?

  2. Jim, It appears this is something the PayPal toolbar or add-on is injecting into the form on your machine via a script. If you look at the actual source code (not with firebug) you won't see that. Other users won't see this unless they have a similar add-on.

    It looks like it's some type of form autocomplete function the PayPal thing adds. It's pretty common for other toolbars and browser extensions to do something similar with forms.
