Next to the functionality of editing passwords, I like that there is a button for directly accesing the stored passwords
Thanks for this Addon. It fills the missing functionality I've had in Firefox for a long time.
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?
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.
The functionallity that it adds to the built in password manager is needed. It's really great addon. Thanks a lot.
Excellent addon, but doesn't it overlap with Firefox v.42's new functionality?
LATER: @ Daniel: thanks for your detailed reply, much appreciated. So I can feel comfortable letting your addon run concurrently with FX42, which is what I wanted to know.
Only somewhat. For instance, 42 still doesn't allow you to save, edit, or delete your passwords straight from the page context menu (with SPE, right-click on a username or password field in a web form, and you get those options).
You have to make your passwords visible in order to edit them (with SPE, they can remain hidden from anyone looking over your shoulder).
Most importantly, you still can't input logins on your own, which means that if the Password Manager is unable to recognize a web form for whatever reason (say, it's built after page load by scripts), you're out of luck.
To be fair, the things that used to confound the Password Manager still confound SPE. I should look into what Mozilla has done to see if SPE can be improved too.
Great addon! Why doesn't Firefox come with this functionality? Glad someone else gets it.
la usero sempre
Awsome and useful tool, very easy to use. Does the job perfectly (should be integrated in Firefox, like now Folder Pane and Lightning in Thunderbird ! ;)
Thanks, Daniel !
Excellent petit outil qui complète bien les fonctionnalités de Firefox. Thanks Daniel!
I had Remember Passwords extension that worked before I upgraded from FF31esr to FF38esr: https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/addon/remember-passwords/
On 38 it caused passwords not filling in and made Saved Password Editor show blank list of passwords.
Filed a bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1182504
I've used this add-on for years, but had some problems with Firefox recently, so I had to use the "Firefox reset" option (which uninstalls all addons but keeps data safe).
Yesterday, I installed it again (new version?), and somehow all my passwords storage got wiped clean.
Thanks a bunch, man!
Sorry to hear that happened to you. You should seek help at Mozilla Support https://support.mozilla.org/ since Saved Password Editor does not handle storing your passwords. That is the job of Mozilla's Password Manager that is built into Firefox. (That is why this add-on is called Saved Password Editor and not Saved Password Manager, as it provides a few enhancements to what is already there.)
I'm not an expert about it, but from my experience, Refresh Firefox creates a new profile and copies in data from the old one. I've heard of it not always copying everything it should, so maybe that happened to you. Your passwords should still be in the old profile, if you haven't deleted it. Anyway, please go to Mozilla Support https://support.mozilla.org/ for further help about it.
Doesn't want to fill in password at npr.org
Please look at the support forum at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/ddawson-addonssupport
In short, SPE has never claimed to fill passwords. That's still left as the job of Firefox, as to do otherwise would turn SPE into a password manager, not a password *editor*. If Firefox doesn't do that properly, you'll need other solutions, one of which I suggest at aforementioned support site.
If you want to complain about this, please complain to Mozilla developers.
With the constant change of my passwords across various websites, saved password editor enables me to update in a single step. A nice extension would be the availability for firefox for android...
I did have an Android version at one time, but then they changed the browser and broke compatibility, and I didn't have the means to test with the new browser. And by the time I did, there was this add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/mobile-password-manager/ . It's not mine, but it does provide a password manager interface as well as performing most of the editing functionality that SPE performs on the desktop browsers, though notably absent is editing multiple passwords at once. Try it out, and see if it does the job for you.
If there is sufficient interest, I might either try to convince the MPM author to improve MPM or try to get SPE (or a version of it) to work on mobile. It's just not a priority right now.
I like the "Guess from current page" feature, it makes it really easy to use and it worked first time.
Makes it very easy to login to any sight, saves the time of manually typing everything in. Only thing that could make this better is password backup, in case you have to reinstall or refresh firefox for any reason, lost all my passwords twice now that way, I do keep a list of usernames/passwords for each sight I go to on a note pad on my scratch pad that I keep inside my computer.
You might consider backing up the files in your profile folder. See https://support.mozilla.org/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data
There's also Password Exporter https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/password-exporter/ which hasn't been updated in a long time, so it may or may not work.
I always figure, I didn't build the password manager, so I don't take responsibility for backing it up, especially when solutions already exist. But I hope you find those solutions helpful.
нужная вещь :)
This addon is great, I have been using it for at least a year now. My only request is that when you click "Delete login info" from the right click menu, that it confirms that you want to delete the login info first. I have accidentally done this a few times and inadvertently deleted saved passwords that I didn't want to delete.
The add-on itself is great and very useful, however I'm concerned about its integrity as a routine scan using a new anti-malware program (Reason Core) detected that it had the notorious 'Ramnit' trojan attached to it, and it deleted the whole add-on as a precaution. I don't know whether to risk downloading it again, I didn't save any passwords for financial or shopping sites but it's still a worry. I don't believe the developer had any foreknowledge or involvement in this but clearly someone managed to get it on there.
Where exactly did you download Saved Password Editor? I just tried downloading from AMO (through the "Add to Firefox" button on the main listing page) and comparing to my build. The files are identical, so it's impossible for any malware to have been added there.
If you got the add-on through another site, please note that you should be wary of other sites, especially when the official distribution is here. If you downloaded from here, then it seems either your computer is already infected with something that is manipulating what you receive, or your anti-malware software gave you a false positive (quite possible depending on how it fingerprints malware).
I also would like to point out that you should not feel safe with other Firefox extensions just because their stated purpose doesn't involve handling your passwords. *All* extensions (i.e. add-ons that modify behavior) have full privileges to do anything Firefox itself can do (except for SDK add-ons that do not request such privilege). Having an add-on whose description says nothing about passwords be the one to steal them makes more sense, don't you think? However, the review performed by actual humans (the add-on reviewers) before add-ons are allowed to be publicly released is designed to prevent such a blatant violation.
There are still ways that malware can slip in, though. In the near future (planned for version 41; version 40 will have a preference allowing it to be disabled), Firefox is going to allow only extensions signed by Mozilla to be installed. See https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2015/02/10/extension-signing-safer-experience/ and https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2015/04/15/the-case-for-extension-signing/ and https://wiki.mozilla.org/Addons/Extension_Signing for more info. That should significantly reduce such infections, among other things.
It's a very handy addon
MUST BE DONATED!
Für mich ist dies Super. Die Funktion des Passwort anzeigen ist auf dem Persönlichen Computer zuhause komfortabel. Hier musss ich nichts verstecken. Auf dem Geschäftsläptop verstecke ich die Passwörter.
Уникално е браво ! Сега вече никои няма да си забравя паролите хихи
