I have a form:
http://www.jotform.com/form/11530401402 and I would like to autofill one of the fields. The field is named
name="q5_contactFrom" If I use the following: http://www.jotform.com/form/11530401402?q5_contactFrom=TEXTHERE nothing is filled in.
Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you for posting your inquiry.
To prepopulate your form using URL parameters, you will no longer have to include the first few characters of the field name up to the underscore. So if you have the name of the field q5_contactFrom, you no longer have to include 'q5_', so it will just be 'contactFrom'. You can try this one out on your form:

Is this feature browser dependent?

This works on all browsers. Are you having an issue making it work on your form? If so, please tell us more details about issue.

Yes I am having issues in FireFox. It seems to work just fine in IE but not in FireFox.

Thanks for the details.
I have checked the source of your code, and noticed that you're missing the 57 at the end of the field name parameter. Please try this one instead:

I'm sorry about this. I forgot that the field names for URL parameters are case sensitive. So it should be http://form.jotform.com/form/11985714396?vendorNumber57=378143
