Password Tags Version History

20 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 2.1.4 114.4 kB Works with Firefox 17.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.18 and later, Thunderbird 21.0 and later

Version 2.1.3 114.2 kB Works with Firefox 17.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.18 and later, Thunderbird 21.0 and later

  • Fixed sync engine so it works again.
  • Also, slight code tweaks.

Version 2.1.2 124.6 kB Works with Firefox 17.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.17 and later, Thunderbird 20.0 and later

Fixed login textbox type check by making it case-insensitive.

Version 2.1.1 124.9 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

Bug fixes:
  • Now decrypting metadata for storage in Sync. This is necessary, since different profiles have different SDR keys, unless key3.db was copied. Simply copying the encrypted data makes it unreadable on other profiles. (Sync encryption is still in effect, of course.)
  • Typo in defaultFieldConfig.js: "this_instantApply" should be "this._instantApply".
  • Hiding encrypt checkbox and table headers when deleting last row: check that rows.length < 2 should be rows.length < 1.
Also, now using preference sync on most Password Tags preferences, with the exception of useSyncService and logToConsole. The former is used to control part of Sync and as such must not itself be synched.

Version 2.1 124.9 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

  • Added support for encrypting metadata (not including tags) using the Secret Decoder Ring service (nsILoginManagerCrypto, same as the login manager itself uses, which automatically handles a master password).
  • Added a "Metadata" column that shows whether a password has associated metadata (other than tags) and whether they are encrypted or not.
  • Added confirmation when deleting all metadata fields in editor.
  • Added option (enabled by default) to prompt for the master password when trying to edit encrypted metadata.
  • Added salting to username hashes in metadata records, in order to prevent identical usernames in different records from being linked to each other too easily.
  • Now using a cache for the database and using asynchronous statements for updates. After rereading the docs and experimenting, I realize now there isn't necessarily a problem with using both synchronous and asynchronous statements, particularly if they are on different tables.
  • Added Joseph A. Alfano as a contributor. He hasn't written any code, but he has been quite helpful in other ways, including feedback, bug reports, testing, and suggestions. Thanks.
  • Fixed bug with context submenu being empty if hidden and reshown without hiding and showing the main context menu.

Version 2.1b4 123.9 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

  • Added code to limit performance impact of username hash migration.
  • Updated locales.

Version 2.1b3 123.9 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

Fixed bug in editor window causing metadata not to be populated, and possibly a couple of other issues.

Version 2.1b2 123.9 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

Incorporated suggestions by Joseph Alfonso:
  • Added confirmation when deleting all metadata fields in editor.
  • Replaced "MD" column with "Metadata" (i.e. no more abbreviation), and made the column resizable.
  • Added option (enabled by default) to prompt for the master password when trying to edit encrypted metadata.
Also, added salting to username hashes in metadata records, in order to prevent identical usernames in different records from being linked to each other too easily.

Version 2.1b1 121.9 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

  • Added support for encrypting metadata (not including tags) using the Secret Decoder Ring service (nsILoginManagerCrypto, same as the login manager itself uses, which automatically handles a master password).
  • Added an "MD" column that shows whether a password has associated metadata (other than tags) and whether they are encrypted or not.

Version 2.0.1 114.7 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

Major new version
  • Added metadata beyond simple tags. This is in the form of arbitrary named and typed fields (with the types being single-line text, multi-line text, and number). Fields to be added by default when first adding metadata can be configured.
  • Converted storage component to a JavaScript code module.
  • Added "Fill by Password Tags" to page context menu, allowing selection of login with associated tags visible.
  • Added handling of modifications in password manager to signonMetadataStorage, so as to make sure metadata doesn't become disconnected just because someone edited the hostname, etc. A preference is included to control whether the associated metadata should be deleted along with a login.
  • Removed "usernameField" and "passwordField" from metadata storage, since they're never used to identify a login record.
  • Now using signons.sqlite for storage (table dd_passwordtags_metadata).
  • Added Sync integration.

Version 2.0pre5 92.2 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

Minor code cleanup, plus a few completed locales from BabelZilla

Version 2.0pre4 61.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

Added button to delete all metadata.

Version 2.0pre3 61.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

  • Added Sync integration.
  • Miscellaneous improvements, such as accesskeys and a confirmation box when deleting metadata from Saved Passwords.

Version 2.0pre2 54.3 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

  • Now using signons.sqlite for storage (table dd_passwordtags_metadata).
  • Added button in general prefs to clean up orphaned metadata.

Version 2.0pre1 51.2 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

Major new version
  • Added metadata beyond simple tags. This is in the form of arbitrary named and typed fields (with the types being single-line text, multi-line text, and number). Fields to be added by default when first adding metadata can be configured.
  • Converted storage component to a JavaScript code module.
  • Added "Fill by Password Tags" to page context menu, allowing selection of login with associated tags visible.

Version 1.2.1 52.2 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

Fixed stupid blunder where I made "Edit tags" menu item in Data Manager stop working.

Version 1.2 52.2 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • For what little it's worth, SeaMonkey's Data Manager is now supported, because without a UI to access the Password Manager, the Data Manager is all you have. I've talked to the developer of Saved Passwords Button about adding support beyond Firefox, and he's responded favorably to the suggestion, so hopefully this add-on will once again become more than slightly useful for SeaMonkey users without unnecessarily installing Saved Password Editor or such.

Version 1.1.1 47.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.1b2, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • Fixed bug causing 't' to start editing a tags field even while already editing a tags field, resulting in the field being cleared inappropriately.

Version 1.1 45.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.1b3, Thunderbird 3.0 - 3.3a3pre

  • Support entering and sorting multiple tags per password.
  • Suppress normal DEL key handling while editing tags, so it doesn't delete the password.
  • Added support for keystroke while list is focused to activate tag editing ("t" in en-US locale).
  • Fixed interface declaration for ddISignonCategoryStorage so it actually supports Unicode.
  • ddSignonCategoryStorage component now loads tags file on first request instead of at startup.
  • Replaced target application declarations with "toolkit@mozilla.org"—this add-on should now work with all Gecko-based applications that provide access to the password manager.
