How do I stop websites from disabling autocomplete in text fields?

Many websites disable autocompletion for security reasons; so in order to for SeaMonkey to override it, you'll need to have data encryption enabled. To enable data encryption, go to Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Passwords, and check mark "Use encryption when storing sensitive data." (You'll have to set a master password, for it to work.)

Then enter about:config in the location bar.
Search for the preference wallet.crypto.autocompleteoverride.
Modify the value to true.

If you don't want to enable data encryption, you can also try a bookmarklet from Squarefree Bookmarklets.
