Strange autofill behavior

  • Autofill itself seems to fill out online forms about as well as other browsers (it fills most simple name and address fields correctly most of the time) but Opera does one thing very strange after it correctly fills an online form...

    After using Opera to automatically insert my name and address in a form, Opera will then pop up a banner at the top of the screen asking if I want Opera to save that same name and address?

    It doesn't seem to matter whether I choose Yes or No or just click the X to close the banner -- the data it is asking about saving is the same data that is already saved in Opera and it doesn't change. But I'm just wondering why Opera wants to waste my time asking me if I want to save a name and address that is already saved.

  • Here is a screen capture of the issue:
