Password Exporter

Import fails/unable to find support Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I hope someone who can help sees this. I spent a good amount of time looking for a proper support email address or forum and found nothing.

My FF profile seems to have completely disappeared and was utterly corrupted. I tried to import the cvs file that your plugin exported a few days before this crash, and it locked up FF. I had to shut down FF from the task manager.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I really don't look forward to importing around 100 or so passwords.

I am operating Windows 7, 64 bit, and FireFox 16.0.2.

It exports passwords fine, but I'm giving this only a 2-star rating until it (A) imports them, and (B) has some means of asking support that does not involve cluttering up the reviews.

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

IE Tab + (FF 8+, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3.6, 3.5, SeaMonkey)

Step-by-step help please Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Hi Pauline,

I gave it 2 stars because it worked well until FF 8 came out. If I were writing a review for this plugin working under FF7, I'd give it 5 stars.

You wrote:
"To make IE Tab work with FF 8+, you advised "Just add extensions.checkCompatibility.8.0 = false in about:config"

I need step-by-step instructions. I put the "about" in the search bar, but nothing came up under extensions.checkCompatibility or checkCompatibility for that matter.

Are you going to be able to give us a version where we don't have to twiddle with it? I ask for those of us who are not technologically advanced.


Show Anchors

PC Dingo missing??? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tried to go to the author's site, and he seems to have disappeared. The domain he had is now for sale. I believe he was or is a Japanese resident, and I greatly fear for his wellbeing, given the recent earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear accident.

I hope all is well with him. His Show Anchors add-on worked well in older versions of FireFox, and I hope I can implement Rootman's work-around with FF 4.
