Saved Password Editor Version History

60 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 2.5pre3 143.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

  • Attempting to optimize first-run module.
  • Added some updated locales.

Version 2.5pre2 68.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

Improvements to editor window:
  • Minimized use of XPath.
  • Loosened form matching logic: no longer requires name attributes.
  • Handling of show/hide now focuses the newly-visible button for better accessibility.

Version 2.5pre1 63.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

  • Added page context menu items for manipulating logins associated with a web form directly. These are made to work very similarly to those in Mobile Saved Password Editor.
  • Renamed "HTTP authentication" login type to "Annotated" while making it work with non-HTTP authentication logins (an example being Sync). Accordingly, I also renamed the "HTTP realm" field to "Annotation".
  • Rearranged icon files so all are in the skin directory; packed the 29px, 24px, 19px, and 16px icons into a single file for use with the "-moz-image-region" style rule. The 32px and 64px ones must exist as individual files since they are referenced from places that don't accept icon-set images.
  • Converted first-run component to a module. This solves the problem of unreliable behavior in opening a new tab, since I can now use an overlay to import the module on window load. The module runs once on application startup and leaves no objects where it is imported.
  • Updated welcome page to mention the new commands in the context menu.

Version 2.2.6.1-signed 160.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • Moved Master Password prompt to after the editor window is already displayed, in an attempt to resolve reported issue with the prompt appearing behind the Saved Passwords window on recent Firefox under Windows 7.
  • Split Show/Hide button into two separate buttons, in order to get rid of redundant strings in locale properties files.
  • Split locale files into window-specific files.
  • fi: Jiipee (BabelZilla)

Version 2.2.5.1-signed 144.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • Updated pt-BR, pt-PT, and zh-TW locales.
  • Updated compatibility for Conkeror.

Version 2.2.3.1-signed 144.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • Renamed references to Firefox menu (Windows and Linux) to be less obscure.
  • Updated welcome page text to better reflect reality (e.g. context menu).
  • Increased welcome page delay timer from 3000 to 3500.
  • Switched to using 32px icon as small add-on icon, only as icon.png (removed <iconURL> element in install.rdf). Switched to using 64px icon in welcome page. Deleted 32px and 48px icons from skin directory, as they are no longer being used.
  • Deleted chrome/icons, since those icons are not used much.
  • Ran remaining icons through pngcrush to reduce their size.
  • Fixed another bug related to SeaMonkey Data Manager.

Version 2.2.1.1-signed 161.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • Updated eo locale
  • hsb-DE: milupo (BabelZilla)

Version 2.2.1-signed 157.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • Changed password editor window to not ask for Master Password for an initially shown password if passwords are already being displayed in the Saved Passwords list.
  • Added option to have password in editor window be shown if and only if passwords are being shown in the Saved Passwords list.
  • New feature: when using "Guess from current page", in case there is more than one suitable login form, allow the user to select among them using buttons next to the "Guess" button.
  • Made guessing work with XHTML (application/xhtml+xml).
  • Added tooltip to menu items.

Version 2.1.1.1-signed 152.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

Oops, Object.create() doesn't work before Fx 4.0 and equivalents. Fix.

Version 2.1.1-signed 152.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • New feature: multiple selections now allowed for editing. Useful if, for instance, you have similar credentials on many sites, or many accounts on one site, and you need to change them en masse.

    All of the selected logins must be of the same type (web form, HTTP, other). Fields that differ among the selections are represented by a light checkerboard pattern, indicating an indeterminate value. Anything entered in any of the fields is written to all selected logins, but fields left indeterminate are not changed.

    Note that the Tags field (convenience for those with Password Tags installed) doesn't behave in the above way and in fact is turned off when editing multiple logins.
  • eo: milupo (BabelZilla)

Version 2.0.6.1-signed 153.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • Modified form matching for password editor: now requires username and password fields to have non-empty name attributes. For the future: implement a way for all forms considered valid to be offered to user, in case there are multiple login forms on the page.
  • Fixed glitch in menu-button behavior, where it would not revert to "new" state for non-singular selections after the editor dialog was cancelled.
  • zh-CN: yfdyh000 (BabelZilla)

Version 2.0.4.1-signed 153.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.1b3, Thunderbird 3.0 - 3.3a3pre

2.0.4:
  • Now works with SeaMonkey's new Data Manager (my own menu item and toolbar button still access the toolkit dialog).

2.0.3:
  • Fixed: list wasn't being updated after editing password if list was filtered.
  • "Category" now changed to "Tags" to match renaming of Password Categories add-on to Password Tags.

Version 1.5.4 119.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 4.0b8pre, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.1b2, Thunderbird 3.0 - 3.3a2pre

  • Moved first-run code into a component.
  • Welcome page now appears in Thunderbird (in a tab). Still nothing for Sunbird; I'd probably need to open a window.
