    I assume you are referring to the 'Global Auto-Type' hot key (default Ctrl-Alt-A). To test:

    1. Confirm that the 'Global auto-type' hot key is assigned in Tools>Options>Integration.
    2. Create a new test database with KeePass 2.25 that contains Sample Entry #2. (Don't use an old database even if it contains the same (apparent) entry)
    3. Open the web page
    4. Place the cursor in the 'User name:' field then press Ctrl-Alt-A.

    Auto-Type should work. If the above works you have a settings issue or a target window matching issue. Otherwise you may have a hot key registration issue.

    Also make sure you only have one instance of KeePass running. You can check for multiple keepass.exe processes in the 'Process tab' of Task manager.
