Does Not Work for Login Forms In Sub-Folders Rated 3 out of 5 stars
First, this is a decent login-password manager, but it has one Con to it. Hence the 3 star and not 4 or 5.
It cannot save login information when the login form is located in a sub-folder or when a website is located in a sub-folder. This means if a person owns several websites all located in sub-folders of his main Domain URL, this password editor won't work.
By default FireFox saves per the main domain URL ignoring any sub-folders.
This con makes it impossible to use a password editor or password manager to auto login to websites located in sub-folders. It cannot distinguish between the URL sub-folders.
Not all websites have their own domain names when installed in sub-folders. I have several WordPress installs on my main website for demo purposes and do not want to create new domain names for each install. This is why I needed a password manager that can distinguish between login forms based on URL's that contain sub-folders locations. And for higher security, each install login has different user names and passwords.
Maybe you can install that feature? - to be able to save login information per the URL and not restrict it to the main domain name.
Aug 19 / reply to Daniel:
The function of your extension is much the same, albeit some differences with another extension I downloaded and it works great. It provides "Add Secure Login Bookmark" and with that I was able to specify a subfolder for the login page, one for each WordPress subfolder domain site I have on my main domain. So yes it can work and even in FIreFox saved password editor that comes with it by default actually shows the subdomains that belong to each login.
I did not mention that extension here on purpose, but wanted to say, Yes its possible and beside that bookmark feature does pretty much the same as your extension.
Yes, it uses a work around, but whatever works.
Unfortunately, that is not possible. The built-in Password Manager inflexibly matches sites only up to the domain name (and port number, if that is part of the URL). If you try to feed it any more information, it simply refuses to match it. This is not something Saved Password Editor can control. Sorry.
If this is something you require, you will need an application or add-on that can deal with it, such as a password manager. There's also iMacros for Firefox https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/imacros-for-firefox/ which is a bit overkill but is quite likely to work for this situation.
Outstanding! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Marvelous tool to have around, especially when managing lots of accountsThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.9.6).
I don't know if this has been already asked... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Would it be possible to add encryption options to this add-on? I'm not sure where exactly is the passwords catalog stored, but it seems to sync through all my Firefox browsers which is fine, but I would like some more control over how they are transmitted over to Mozilla Sync servers. Just for peace of mind.
Regardless, excellent add-on. I've been using it for about 3 years now, if not more.
You misunderstand. SPE is not a password manager. It augments the functionality of the password manager that has always been a part of Firefox. You can see more details at https://support.mozilla.org/kb/password-manager-remember-delete-change-and-import , which tells about the built-in functionality and about protecting your passwords (by default, anyone with access to your Firefox profile can get the passwords; there's a way to change that). As for where they are stored, you can read https://support.mozilla.org/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data#w_what-information-is-stored-in-my-profile
A must have for responsible users Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Perhaps the most useful application of this addon is that it gives a way to record and remember login info for websites which stubbornly refuse to allow your firefox to do so (although admittedly the denial to remember passwords has a meaning for many irresponsible users) . You can also make batch changes to login info.
To make firefox remember your login info you just click on the password field in the website, then you open the saved passwords dialogue and click 'New' to create a new username &amp; password for the site. In the window that popus up you click "Guess from current page" and voila! you can now enter the username and password to be remembered.
The developer is right. I had hidden the "Save Login Info" from the right-click menu with another addon
to save space. I unhide it and now the saving of login info in picky websites is way quicker.
Thanks for this. FYI, that method *does* work. That's the original way SPE was designed. Do note, however, that I added commands to the page context menu (a.k.a. right-click menu); just right-click on a username or password field, and choose a command. Not only is it more efficient IMO, the "Save login info" command (equivalent to "New" that I added to the Saved Passwords dialog) automatically fills in all the data it can from the login form, even the username and password if you happen to have entered them. So you might only need to click "OK".
The above should be explained in the add-on description. However, some translations of it are out of date; what language do you see it in?

At last I can manage the credentials of domain Product that I have to work on daily to test again and again. And for doing so I had to manually login after some time with different credentials and then back to the previous one and then had to login with 3rd User. With the Help of Save Password Editors now my life has become easy. If there are more than the rating points then I would have given the highest.
Great Addon! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is a very useful Add-on.
Especially when sites don't specifically support the saving of username and password data.
I am using Firefox 46.0 and all is working.
Really useful addon but not working since few days - in firefox 45.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Really useful addon but not working since few days - in firefox 45.0
No entries are being showed in when we click SPE button.
Hoping for a update to work with new firefox versions...
I'm not having this problem. But others have had it in the past, and it is usually caused by corruption in the profile. There was also a bug in Fx 44 that caused it to erase all passwords in certain cases, but that should have been fixed long ago. In any case, to my knowledge this has never been caused by SPE before, so I suggest you look, and maybe ask, on Mozilla Support: https://support.mozilla.org

That darned Mozilla... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I just came across the recent bug at Bugzilla where I found out that they're going to be removing the 'Show Passwords' button (How dare we want to see all of our passwords at one time!!!) as yet another Mozilla UX boner. Well, I hope this doesn't cause too much hassle for SPE to continue providing that function (till the complete removal of XUL/XPCOM make every really useful extension a no-go).
Oh, and good job. :)
Excellent Security Add-On Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you, Daniel Dawson!
I use this add-on daily. It has saved me numerous times. I appreciate the ability to manually edit / change info for a site as well as cloning the info for an existing site to modify for a similar site. I, too, would like the ability to export and import site password info for archiving and/or transferring between devices.
The Best Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The software itself is excellent, but an import / export feature would be a nice add-on!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.9.6).
It is. Literally: https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/password-exporter/
Several people are requesting this. But the question is, what's wrong with that other add-on? Besides, it's not only SPE users who want the functionality. Anyone who saves their passwords in Firefox and Thunderbird might want to back up their passwords. If they don't want to install SPE, they can still install the lighter-weight Password Exporter (PE) and get that functionality.
I can think of two things that can be improved upon in regards to PE: (1) working on SeaMonkey and (2) supporting another format, like JSON (nice to have, but not required). Other than that, what is there?
I won't definitely not do it. If I do, though, I might implement it as a separate add-on. So that would be a replacement for Password Exporter.
Feature request Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Great addon. Thanks. Export to a text file or .csv file for archiving in a convenient form would be a good new feature. Thanks!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.9.6).
SPE with Adblock Plus Rated 4 out of 5 stars
When ABP is active i couldn't edt PW's. If i deactivate it, it work. Do you have an idea what's going wrong?
This is not the place for support requests, as the site rules clearly state (it should also have told you that as you were typing your review). Please send your request to my email or the support site; both are linked from the add-on listing page. Then we'll be able to have a proper conversation.
Hello Daniel Dawson... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
the problem is this:
i have select "passwords always display" in the settings, but when i open SPE then i must always click twice on the Button "Show passwords" so that passwords are displayed.
This Problem exists since FireFox 44.0.
SPE Version 2.9.6 works again
icon color change for stored pages required Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This add-on is very helpful.
I suggest that the author make one small improvement - the icon should change it's color when I go to pages stored by FF. This will indicate that in these pages I can facilitate entering login-password by using 'Secure Login' add-on.
Really helpful Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Next to the functionality of editing passwords, I like that there is a button for directly accesing the stored passwordsThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.9.4).

Restartless? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thanks for this great add-on, it has served well for many years already, and ive noticed that out of 6 addons i use now, only Password Editor requires Firefox to be restarted :/ Is it possible to make it NO RESTART please?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.9.4).
I understand the problem. It's not so easy to do, though. SPE is dependent on doing things in a way that requires restarting to (un)install, enable, and disable. It can be adapted, but it's by no means a trivial change; it will probably require rewriting a lot of it from scratch. It won't be long, though, that I'll have to change it anyway, since Firefox is going to stop supporting traditional add-ons.
I hope you will keep making it better. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The functionallity that it adds to the built in password manager is needed. It's really great addon. Thanks a lot.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.9.4).
