Firefox 57 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would be wonderful to see this addon updated for firefox 57+

Unfortunately Mozilla needs to implement new APIs in order to get this working in 57+. More details here:

"Update password" does not work Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Everything works except updating password. So I am able to create new record in keychain, but unable to update password. I can send you collected logs, just say where.

Best would be to raise a bug on

If you're not comfortable sharing the logs there, you can email them to me (first initial and last name at

Would also be good to know if this is with every site or only (a) certain one(s)

It's as if this addon doesn't exist. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I installed your add-on and even restarted my computer, but it's still as if your add-on does not even exist. Besides, the note you made about removing passwords on shutdown does not seem to apply anymore.

I think I could find the debug information you requested, but how do I get it to you?

Thanks for the pointer about clearing passwords on shutdown... looks like that functionality was removed in FF42. I've closed the relevant bug on github and will update the notes on the extension page.

Does this thing do ANYTHING?? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I add this addon to Firefox, but it does not seem to do anything at all....
Is there a trick to it that I am missing??

"Update Password" not working Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This should really be part of ff like in Chrome. However, I have the issue that the passwords are not updated once they are set (i.e. if a password is changed and I enter the new one, ff asks me to update it but it is not updated, neither in the keychain nor in the ff password manager). Am I doing something wrong?

Yes, I still can't understand why FF doesn't support it natively. The extension should "just work" but there are lots of moving pieces controlled by Mozilla and Apple so when it fails it can be hard to work out why.

You can try turning on debug logging as explained on the add-on page and see if that highlights the problem. I'm afraid I don't have much time to spend on this these days but if the problem isn't clear, email the logs to me and I'll see if I can spot it easily.

multiple keychains? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

it seems that the add on only uses the icloud keychain. is there any option how i could use both the login and the icloud keychain for autofill? also i would like to tell the addon whether to save a new password to the icloud or the login keychain

It should use your keychain search path, which should be the same order as the list you see in the top left pane in Keychain Access (you could confirm by running "security list-keychains" in the console)

There are two undocumented preferences, which I use mainly for testing: - a colon-separated list of keychain paths to search for passwords (overriding the system search path)
extensions.macos-keychain.write-file - the path to the keychain where passwords should be stored

You can set both of these by going to "about:config" in Firefox

The problem is that the Local Items keychain used by iCloud isn't stored as a keychain file and doesn't seem to show up explicitly in the search path, so this may not give you exactly what you want. But it might let you find a workable solution.

It works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

So glad this exists.

It has a few glitches, like sometimes not picking up the latest keychain entry for a site/account but overall, great job!

Works as per the description Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on that works just as it says. Unfortunately the approval process to do iCloud stuff means it does not work as we would all like :(

only integrated username, no pw!!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Disappointed that this add-on doesn't function as promised... only the usernames imported!

Firefox needs to work better with Apple Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Firefox keychain Services Add-On says:

"Note about iCloud: Because of Apple security controls, it does not seem possible to support iCloud storage unless Mozilla chooses to distribute Firefox via the App Store. Appropriate entitlements must also be requested when building the application. Unfortunately, it's not clear that either of these is likely to happen soon."

Why can't Firefox work within Apple's security model. Is it a case of egotistical developers who only do things their way?

FF 49+ compatibility Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thaaaanks for updating this addon,
cause its is very important for my workflow and also it is important to have the newest FF version installed. :)
Thanks a lot !!

Yeaht it works as great as ever, for FF49! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a really great tool!
And so fast updated.
Thanks a lot! :)

All fixed for FF 49! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you so much to the developer for finding time to fix this in response to the changes Mozilla made to FF49. Could not recommend more for Mac users who'd like Keychain integration.

Awesome extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It is in my top 3 favorite extensions and works flawlessly. Really, it should be the Firefox default.

Excellent, but not working with FF 49 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not sure if this an e10 problem or not, but once Developer Edition upgraded from 48 to 49, this extension stopped working.

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

Well spotted - not related to multi-process though as far as I can see. Seems LoginManager has changed and is now calling searchLogins() which I never implemented.

Probably not too hard to do so – if anyone has time and wants to fix and submit a pull request on github that would be terrific. Not sure when I'll have time to get to it at the moment unfortunately....

In the meantime, I've marked as only compatible up to 48.* for now.

Security Issues Showing Password? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a very nice and useful add-on for Firefox.

Though with this add-on, isn't there a bit of a security issue in allowing the passwords to be seen in Firefox > Preferences > Security > Saved Logins... > Show Passwords ?

Anyone getting on to your computer can go to Firefox and see all the Keychain web passwords without having to enter the Mac's login password.

In Safari, you can only see the web passwords if you enter your Mac login password. And the same is true in Keychain itself. I think that is a safer system.

But a pretty good add-on in general.

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

I sort of agree but, I'm only replacing the password saving mechanism – it's Firefox that chooses to show you the passwords it reads from the password database.

Safari's also not offering much protection, to be honest. If you've allowed a browser access to a particular password and your keychain is unlocked, someone with control of your computer could simply go to the website in question, allow the password to be filled, and then copy the value from the password field (possibly using JavaScript if necessary).

Basically, if you want to keep a password secure from someone with physical access to your computer, you shouldn't store it in an unlocked keychain.

Firefox 42 issue Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great plugin, using it for over 5 years.
Current problem is that Firefox 42+ doesn't save or update passwords. Tested on new install, blank profile.

With FF 39 the buttons from >FF> toolbar does not work anymore Rated 1 out of 5 stars

With 39.0 version of FF it does not work fine. Buttons from toolbar such as Download, Preferences does not work (only via Menu).

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

Sorry you're having trouble; why do you think this extension is the cause of the problems you are seeing? It doesn't do anything to the toolbar, so I don't know why it would be impacting that. I'm also using FF 39.0 myself right now and all seems normal.

If you haven't already, please try disabling extensions one at a time to confirm which is causing the problem. If it really is this one, then please enable debug logging as explained on the extension info page and send me the full logs by email.

Working flawlessly for over a year Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using this on my Macbook Pro for over a year. I depend on Keychain Services to store ALL of my login credentials - and this gives Firefox seamless access to this information. Chrome seems to have this built in - so this plugin seems like a no-brainer. Thanks again!

Choosy about the hostname for a site? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've having semi-success with this extension. Three scenarios... (1) some sites it's not offering any password assistance, (2) some sites it's only using the previousy-stored password prior to me installing this extension, and (3) other sites it's working perfectly.

Is the extension choosy about the hostname for a site? I'm having trouble with .ca domains, for example, but not .org.

UPDATE - It seems that Keychain access was not granted to Firefox until after a relaunch (a second time). As soon as I launched it again and visited the login form, it prompted me for Keychain access and then auto-fill worked correctly. Thanks. :)

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

It sounds more likely that some of the sites your'e visiting have disabled autocompletion on their password fields. Firefox honours that request, so the extension has very little involvement in any of that, basically just doing what it's told (or not doing what it's not told in this case). There may be some differences between browser choices here, but you could compare behaviour in Safari or Chrome - do they offer to store passwords for those sites?

Also, I have to jump through some hoops to try to work with passwords stored by Chrome and Safari, so it could also be that there's still some funny behaviour there if you've saved passwords for some of the problematic sites in another browser...

No special logic based on domain names.
