    Just an FYI- When I use the easy comment plugin in Firefox (auto fills the comment form) entry fields (e-mail, web page, etc) I get the error that a certain field should be empty. The plugin does not include other form fields so I'm not sure why this happens.

    It didn't work at first until I cleared my cache also.

    I'll update after a while.

    Thank you for your feedback.

    There are two hidden fields for anti-spam protections. Firefox easy comment plugin tries to fill that fields too. There are 'email' and 'website' strings in fields names to trap spam bots but that baits firefox plugin too. So Firefox easy comment plugin behaves like spam bot and anti-spam plugin blocks it :)

    IMHO Firefox easy comment plugin should not fill hidden fields because regular user will not fill invisible input fields.
