Link-password has worked fine for a long time, but suddenly stopped being available when a right click is make, even though it is listed as an active Add-on. I have tried to re-install, but I cannot do so because the page to download says you must download Firefox first. But this is not necessary as Firefox remains installed and up-to-date. Advice on how to install Link-password much appreciated.
It is a bit hard to know exactly what has happen for you, if you com back with more info (firefox version and Link Password version) we give you more help.
My guss is you have upgrade the addons or Firefox, since Firefox version 57 I have rewrite the addons and some functionality has be moved to new locations (see screenshots).
If you running a older version of Firefox (before 57) please install version "Version 22.214.171.124.1-signed.1-signed"
Ensured my password was correct and now encrypted bookmarks won't decrypt!
Sorry for you has lost access to the bookmarks, most probley you have enter incorrect password when you decrypt or encrypted bookmarks, common issue is caps lock and numb lock.
The best ever addon i see in Mozilla addons.
THanks for this free and perfect addon
Nice you like the addons, please give feedback what can be improved or if you have any suggestion.
Great. Quick & easy.
The extension is very good but now it don't work. I have Firefox ESR, the latest version and Link password the latest version: 5.0.1. I have the message when I click on the link ext+linkpassword://... :
The address wasn’t understood
Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (ext linkpassword) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.
You might need to install other software to open this address.
Firefox ESR 52.5.0 (64-bit)
Hi. Sorry for not working for you, I is for the moment putting all my free time to rewrite Link Password for working with FIrefox version 57! Please be patient I we should be enable to resolve the issue.
5.01 Doesnt works anymore now since latest release with Firefox 56.0 (32-Bit) . There isnt even a Dropdown function anymore to encrypt either Folder or Link. previous Versions worked flawless. There is no entry in the dropdown anymore. I deinstalled and reinstalled the Addon several times. I am using German Version of Firefox.
Edit 25.11.2017, Version 126.96.36.199.1-signed.1-signed still works with Firefox 56.0.2 (32-Bit)
Thx for your Info about installing a previous version
I deactivated Auto update now.
Hi. Sorry for your inconvenience, since Firefox version 57 all functionality in this addon has stop working and I have to rewrite the hole addon from start for working with Firefox version 57.
I will adding Folder encryption/decryption this weekend.
If you still running firefox 56, you can until update to firefox 57 install a older version of Link Passowrd.
Thank you very much, man!
-What if the development should stop? Are there online services/websites one could resort to for decryption?
-Why does the bookmark's description stay unencrypted?
5 stars when these two issues will be effectively addressed.
The licence allows to fork the code, right. But wouldn't it be nice (and more dependable) to be able to encrypt/decrypt the bookmarks even without the addon, like —for instance— PassworkMaker Pro does? (see https://passwordmaker.org/)
I tried to search online decryption facilities, but none of them turned out to be compatible with Link Password.
Thanks man, really appreciated!
I will try to keep the addon working for latest Firefox version. The Link Password use standar AES encryption witch mean most common tool should be enable to decrypt it. Your can always access the source code after you have downloaded the addon.
Bookmarks description is something that is uncommon to be ented and has be missed to be encrypted. I can add this to the new version of Link Password I working on for Firefox 57.
I have look into the issue with description is not encrypted, for the movement it is not possiable to encrypt or remove the description field since it is not exported in the API.
I will take you suggestion to put a external page that can decrypt bookmarks without addons install when I got time.
As suggested, now can you decrypt your bookmarks directly on the web, go to https://linkpassword.evigfilosofi.se/ for manually decrypt bookmarks.
Great add-on ! Privacy is a legitimate need.
It would make sense to me to have an option though which would permit to keep the "rename" setting permanent.
Edit: I had to reverse Firefox to 56 version of Firefox to have this extension to work again and retrieve my encrypted links ;-)
I working on find a way to support Firefox 57 (bit hard), Please be patient and I will try to fix this in the coming days.
other wise perfect.
Worked fine until previous Firefox version, but with Firefox 5.0 even though I enter the password correctly, the addon continues saying that the link is encrypted and doesn't go to requested page.
While the idea of this add-on is great, you can run into real trouble if someone else sets a password on your protected links. Sure, they can't get access to them, but now neither can you. Since the use of this add-on assumes others have access to your browser, this case should be considered likely to happen sooner or later.
It worked perfectly until today. Now if you have a folder encrypted, then you must decrypt the links in the folder individually. You can no longer decrypt an entire folder with one password. It's too bad, because this was a very good, user-friendly extension until now.
Former rating: 5 stars
Rating after today: 1 star
I will gladly give this extension a 5 star rating again if this unfortunate change is fixed back to the way it was before when an entire folder can be decrypted with one password.
This module was working fine until today : when I enter the password, it tells me that it is incorrect but after the 20th time (copy-paste x20) sometimes it works
So, I lost my favorites
I just added this add-on and fell in love instantly. The reason this gets 5 stars is the "rename links" Now if someone happens to use my browser search, they will see links to the likes of YouTube, Maps.. etc. AWESOME detail. I am not sure about if this add-on will encrypt an entire folder full of sub folders but for now it is doing the job it needs. I don't care if I have to encrypt sub folders separately if sometime in the future I need the use of subs. So at this moment this app gets 5 stars. Will keep abreast of how this app works in the future.
It works fine, it would however make my life a lot more easier if you allowed us to set passwords for specific folders with bookmarks.
I advise not to trust this tool. When .html bookmarks are examined in a text editor, the lines are NOT encrypted. So yes, your link is encrypted, but the text description describing it is wide open.
You do not see this when using Firefox, but any cracker can access your bookmarks, they are *not fully protected using this tool.
I am giving 1 star because it is false security, worse than no security at all.
It is not true, the bookmarks is always encrypted, what you found here is a old backup of the bookmarks from the time before you encrypted them.
It is out of my control to verify if any old unecrypted backupes exists.
For me it works perfectly !
More : you can hide the folder in combinaison with the extension stealthmarks
Not only did it NOT WORK, it failed to remove its entries from my context menus. I had to reinstall and uninstall "Link Password" twice before it cleaned up after itself!
how can i reset the password?
I'm sorry, but it does not exist any easy way for your to restore the bookmarks if you has lost your password.
Each bookmark is encrypted with AES and as fair I known impossaable to break except for brute force attack for restore the password.
I created a folder with three links in it, and I password protected each (referred to in practice as right-clicking the link then selecting menu-option labeled "Encrypt this link"). I tried the links, they seemed to be working okay, the passwords working. However, after closing the browser, turning off the machine, rebooting and etc etc..in the subsequent browser sessions later on what turned out to be my case is that only an individual link within the folder would open but not the others.
In case it matters the version of Firefox I used this on is 39.0.3. This does download and install quickly and appears to have a user-friendly & ease-of-access functionality, but my experience as specified in this review shares a limitation which may or may not occur in another users installation. good luck.
The encryption works. The rename links feature goes beyond my expectations. Great work!
Got it sorted!... :-D ....there are more folders with bookmarks within this encrypted folder of mine... a stack of three actually..... it was decrypting the 3rd one in first, and not the primary one as selected..... so I had to decrypt all extra folders inside first starting with the third, before all the bookmarks in the primary folder would decrypt... =]
Very good, this is possiable for you to encrypt same bookarms multiple times with different password. or in you case, has bookmarks encrypted with different password, and in this case decrypt mode will ask for password for all link the program can't decrypt with a enter password.
I forgot my password : (
How can I do to reset it?
is it possible to get it on my mail
I'm sorry for your has lost your password, but I can't help your because of the password is never store as it or send to any webservice and is only use for encrypting the bookmarks, witch mean the only way go get back your bookmarks is to tray any possiable password your might has set.
Best Regard Figaro.
Great application. I did have a problem though. After encrypting a folder and using the rename links, then decrypting, all the links within the sub folders sub folders (so sub folder of the sub folder of the encrypted folder) did not return to their original names.
