QuickPasswords 3.8.3 Requires Restart
Retrieve your Passwords the quick way! Never retype or display your secure passwords on screen anymore - put the password where you need it - the login form or the clipboard.
Now also includes SSO change (multi-domain pw) and Backup + Restore.
About this Add-on
There is also a very handy way of bulk-changing passwords using the built in domain / original password filtering. A brilliant time saver for those who use large corporate web sites and have to reset their password on dozens of sites regularly.
I was always annoyed by the fact that the Password Manage displays not just one Password but a whole list - this extension removes the need to display any password on screen, and gets rid of the inconvenient "typing off screen". Now your passwords can be as complicated and secure as you always wanted!
Also, it fills in the domain name into the filter so you don't have to look quite so hard. Especially useful for developers who have to work a lot with login pages and different test profiles.
If you work a lot with passwords (who doesn't?) be sure to check out the awesome Saved Password Editor it is quite a good addition and fully compatible with QuickPasswords.
Not to replace the Password Manager, but it uses the Password Manager by removing all the pain from the current process... the objective was to have an easy to use, quick way of retrieving passwords with a minimum of security risks (displaying the passwords on screen is a major issue, especially when you are in a company environment).
The password can now be retrieved via the clipboard or can be inserted into the page directly. QuickPasswords is also able to correct if wrong field names are stored, which can happen if the login form changes.
- [Bug 26343] Unified password change not working.
When the Change password button is clicked, instead there is an error message, "tree is not defined".
Note: you cannot use the login and repair buttons when the logins are shown within the about:preferences#security browser tab;
therefore I disabled these buttons unless the dialog window is shown (by clicking on the QuickPasswords toolbar button or context menu from a website).
- Disabled Login and Repair buttons when the login list is shown from the Options tab which is shown at the URI about:preferences#security
Mozilla is going to eventually terminate XUL based addons, so it is important that our functionality stays supported on this Firefox fork. Here is a Mozilla blog post explaining their plans. Although from Firefox version 57 no new XUL addons will be accepted, but I will still be able to maintain / update my existing Firefox addons, until Mozilla decides that they will not be supported by Firefox anymore.
The Development Channel lets you test an experimental new version of this add-on before it's released to the general public. Once you install the development version, you will continue to get updates from this channel. To stop receiving development updates, reinstall the default version from the link above.
Caution: Development versions of this add-on have not been reviewed by Mozilla.
