    just installed firefox 27 and now autotype does no longer work (pressing the keys to activate autotype, select the matching entry and nothings is typed into firefox).
    I am sure this is an issue with firefox, as other autotyping (eg with ac'tivaid hotstrings) do not work too.
    But maybe someone here knows the solution?

    I'm running Firefox 27 under Windows XP.

    Try opening your website log-in page and click on the user name field. Then highlight the matching website entry in KeyPass main window. Keep KeePass main window active, and then do an Autotype [press CTRL+V keys]. It should automatically type in your user name and password. This worked for me.

    Hope this helps.

    what can I say... I tried Mark377's ^V autotype today and it worked. And my way to press keypass' global auto-type key while in firefox works too.
    Between yesterdays fail and todays success was a system reboot.
