#322 closed Bug (wontfix)

Google-bar & forms

Some of our (dutch) customers are using the Google bar on Dutch IE6 & 7, Windows XP. When they open their Contact-form in the editor, some fields are changed by the Google bar with a title like: "This can be filled in for you by the GoogleBar" and making the background yellow. After saving their changes the Google bar changes are also saved.

This looks very bad, is an unwanted add for Google and our customers don't know how to undo these changes.

Is there any solution for this (growing) nuisance?

Only tested on Dutch systems, but I'm sure it will also appear with other languages.

This is a problem in the Google bar itself. It doesn't add any special attribute or property to recognize when it has modified an input, and trying to check the text of the title will fail as soon as that text is localized.

I would suggest you to fill a bug report in their groups so the autofill feature doesn't change any fields inside an contentEditable/designMode element.

Note: to reproduce the bug I needed to change the html filed at startup, putting the form in source mode didn't make the toolbar recognize it, so you could try to set a timeout before filing the FCKeditor, but I think that it's a really ugly workaround and I'm not sure that it would work.
