I'm using KDE 4.4.1 with FF 3.6.3. This extension keeps crashing. Unfortunately it doesn't work well with Xmarks either - it keeps deleting all my passwords

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6). 

A little more explanation

This version uses 3 different folders to store passwords, because it tries to keep as much compatibility as possible with native apps. Prior to version 0.6, this add-on just uses it's own Folder to store passwords.
The Firefox folder format for version 0.6 is compatible with earlier versions of this add-on. So, you shouldn't need to export/import from older versions.
New passwords are stored either in the "Form Data" or "Passwords" folder depending on the type of password. Passwords from these folders are also read by Dolphin and friends. But both these folders have their limitations. So, when the new password does not fit, it is stored in the Firefox folder.
And last, when Firefox finds a password in the Firefox folder, it tries to move it to the other folders, in order to make them compatible with Dolphin. So, seeing that the Firefox folder decreases it size is a sign that a password have been made compatible (it should be in one of the other folders).
Please check if it is actually bad behavior (like forgetting passwords), because it should be a bug! please, let me know.

0.6 doesn't work for me neither. firefox 3.6.3 on kubuntu lucid with kde 4.4.2. version 0.5 works.

Lost all my passwords in upgrade, so make sure you save your wallet each time you see an upgrade.

Also this latest version 0.6 kills username and password being issued to firefox's Net Usage plug-in. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/225.

A part form those problems this project is a great initiative.

Fantastic! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic!

Great idea, makes my day-to-day work a lot easier.

Version 0.6 is broken, it doesn't retrieve stored passwords at all, and the Firefox "remember password?" popdown dialog doesn't disappear after you press Remember.

Version 0.5 works great! Use that instead.

Also, as someone else said, remember to backup your kwallet file. Ubuntu upgrades have often completely nuked my kwallet file from ~/.kde{,3,4}. Just email yourself the encrypted ~/.kde/share/apps/kwallet/kdewallet.kwl file, or copy it to somewhere safe.

Everyone should back up their wallet immediately.

Latest version deleted almost all my Firefox passwords. To avoid deletion I had to close the wallet, then restore a backup than open the wallet again. Nevertheless, it doesn't work. I had to go back to version 0.4. I'm running Firefox 3.6.4 64bit Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 beta 2.

This is one of the best add-ons I use. Thanks for the great work and for keeping it updated.

Hi there,

Awesome work. Would it be possible for this add-on to be able to request open a wallet once it has been closed? At the present time firefox has to be restarted in order to again access the stored passwords.

Thank you for your hard work, definitely my favorite add-on for firefox - i've been eagerly awaiting something like this for many many years.

Cheers

Why do I get incompatible build-type Linux_ppc-gcc3? Is that precompiled binary and doesn't fit my PowerPC Linux?
Could you please provide a work-around? I would really appreciate integrating the firefox browser into KDE world where all my passwords are stored.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5). 

No PPC support

I am sorry Paolo, this extension has a binary library. I've compiled it for x86-32 and x86-64.
I haven't got a ppc to compile for it.
You can download the source code and compile it yourself. This software is open source

firefox 3.6 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please, use default wallet instead of local wallet Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi,

This is a great add-on. The only problem is with the wallet that the add-on uses. KWallet supports create a default wallet (for network passwords) and a local wallet (for local password). I guess konqueror uses the default wallet to store the password but this add-on uses the local one. This is a problem because I have many computers. In each one I use a private and different local wallet but the default wallet is synchronized between them with unison.

I think, this add-on should use the default wallet or have an option to select the desired wallet.

Thank you for this great work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5). 

Thanks for the suggestion

Thanks for the suggestion, I will add support for multiple wallets, by letting you choose which one to use.
But, are you sure this is what is happening to you? because, as in version 0.4 (the only published version), there is no konqueror support. There is partial support in version 0.5 (unpublished). I am working on full support for the next version.
Anyway, choosing the right wallet is a great idea. I will add this to the TODO

This is a really great tool, thanks!

After installing, Firefox saves all passwords to kwallet flawlessly. What has happend to my old internal database? Have these passwords been deleted or do have I to do this manually?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4). 

Internal database

The internal database is still there, you may access it by disabling (or removing) this extension.
You may delete the internal database if you want, I recommend that you first back it up, and migrate the info to kwallet.

Thank you

One step for better firefox integration Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I think, that many KDE users waited for such an add-on for a long time. But most of then will expect, that the passwords are not only stored at kwallet but may be shared with KDE applications.

For myself I've expected to use the passwords stored with konqueror, because I'm using kwallet with konqueror for years.
Because of this, I've patched your source to have at least read access to most passwords at the Form Data section (if the user name was stored either as "username" or "name" and the password as "password" or "pass"). I do not need to write pairs at Form Data within firefox, because I want to migrate from konqueror to firefox only.

I've tried to leave a message with the patch at your homepage, but don't know, if this was successfull.

I like this add-on very much! Thanks!

Possible Addon

Thanks!,
As you may have guess I started trying to use the same repo as konqueror (Form Data) but it has a problem, you can not store more than one password for the same URL.
So I change to another folder with my own format.
But I will see if I can do something about it.
Thanks again

I never used Firefox's master password feature, it was too risky. Viruses and trojans could read the passwords stored in Firefox, it was a security risk. However, seeing as my system already uses KDE Wallet, I don't see why this wouldn't be an useful feature! Maybe I can finally not remember my passwords. I only wish it remembered usernames too..

What it does remember

It remembers user names and passwords. Even if you have more than one username/password combination for the same site.

Yea! In v 0.4 fixed error with non-UTF encoding!
Thanks for the quick response!
And thanks again for a great addon!
