Since updating to 10.7.2, the email addresses in my address book card seem to have re-prioritized themselves. Now when I use Auto-Fill, the wrong address pops up, and I don't see any way to change it.

Can I set a "primary" or default address in Address Book? (I still hate this new version of Address Book by the way.)

Or, can I select which address is used in auto-fill in Safari?

I had the same problem. I went into address book and put my desired address as the first one on my card. It worked.

    How do you change the order? Can't find it on El Capitan, on an address book that uses iCloud.

  • @qnoid The fastest way to do it is probably to replace the contents of the first address / email address with your desired information. Then re-add the old one at the end of the list.

what worked for me was to make sure the address I wanted to use for Autofill was the top address in my Contacts entry.


Select or make the contact you to use as your autofill then go to card menu and select "make this my card" I hope this helps!

  • The question is not about selecting my card, the problem is the addresses listed on the card itself.
