Note  Password Vault must be running in the background with your Vault file open in order for the toolbar buttons to work.

Note  You may notice that extraneous fields are filled on some webpages. For example, in the above figure, you can see several fields on the Sign Up form were filled. In most cases, this will not cause a problem. However, if you wish to explicitly limit which fields can be filled, you can select those fields by making a text selection with your mouse. Then Password Vault will fill only the fields within the selection.
