Saved Password Editor Version History

8 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 2.10b1 263.2 KiB Works with Firefox 45.0 - 49.*, SeaMonkey 2.39 - 2.48, Thunderbird 45.0 - 49.*

  • Support e10s using frame script and message managers.
  • Dropped support for Conkeror, at least temporarily. I don't have the time right now to test whether it supports the message manager interface.
  • Put all scripts in strict mode.

Version 2.9b1 228.7 KiB Works with Firefox 31.0 - 40.0, SeaMonkey 2.25 - 2.36.*, Thunderbird 31.0 - 39.*

  • Implemented configurable keyboard shortcut for opening "Saved Passwords" window.
  • Added "Visit site(s)" menu item to list in Saved Passwords and SeaMonkey Data Manager. Opens each selected item's host URL in a separate tab. Works non-web browsers like Thunderbird too, in which case the Protocol Service called to use the default application for each URL (usually your web browser).
  • Disabled all locales except en-US for now. Else users of other supported locales can't use, since the new locale strings are missing at the moment.
  • Improved apparent organization of prefwindow.
  • Dropped prefwindow unpersist code from firstrun.jsm, since it doesn't work anyway, and the vast majority of users aren't affected.
  • Other, minor improvements to the code.
  • Updated compatibility.

Version 2.8.3b1 223.9 KiB Works with Firefox 31.0 - 36.0, SeaMonkey 2.25 - 2.33, Thunderbird 31.0 - 36.0

Moved context menu items in attempt to fix issue with missing separator.

Version 2.7pre1 224.6 KiB Works with Firefox 10.0 - 21.0a1, SeaMonkey 2.7 - 2.17a1, Thunderbird 10.0 - 21.0a1

  • Added option to select and scroll to a login in the Saved Passwords list when it's first opened.
  • Combined "other" type into "annotated" type in editor.
  • The editor now allows editing any combination of logins regardless of their types; the "Type" section is now removed when editing multiple logins to reflect this fact.
  • Simplified install manifest to list translators for each locale only under their own locales. That saves quite a few KiB in size.
  • Improved look of menu-button in Saved Passwords for Windows and Mac OS X. Thanks to Robert Janc for assistance with the Mac part.

Version 2.6pre1 169.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.6 - 14.0a1, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.11a1, Thunderbird 3.1 - 14.0a1

  • Changed presentation of editor dialog: now all possible fields are visible at all times; the ones that don't pertain to the current login type are disabled. This allowed me to make the window non-resizable and stop persisting the dimensions, which should eliminate problems with the window being too small because the contents have become larger.
  • Added feature to rename "Saved Passwords" menu item for those who want to make it less obvious.
  • Added option to always show passwords, including in the Saved Passwords dialog. Unfortunately, there is a dilemma regarding the master password prompt: if I prompt for it, there is a possibility it has already been prompted for immediately before; if I don't prompt for it, it probably won't get prompted for at all except the first time the dialog shows during a session. I leave it to the user to decide which is less undesirable but err on the side of caution for the default.

Version 2.5pre3 143.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.6 - 12.0a1, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.9a1, Thunderbird 3.1 - 12.0a1

  • Attempting to optimize first-run module.
  • Added some updated locales.

Version 2.5pre2 68.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.6 - 12.0a1, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.9a1, Thunderbird 3.1 - 12.0a1

Improvements to editor window:
  • Minimized use of XPath.
  • Loosened form matching logic: no longer requires name attributes.
  • Handling of show/hide now focuses the newly-visible button for better accessibility.

Version 2.5pre1 63.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.6 - 12.0a1, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.9a1, Thunderbird 3.1 - 12.0a1

  • Added page context menu items for manipulating logins associated with a web form directly. These are made to work very similarly to those in Mobile Saved Password Editor.
  • Renamed "HTTP authentication" login type to "Annotated" while making it work with non-HTTP authentication logins (an example being Sync). Accordingly, I also renamed the "HTTP realm" field to "Annotation".
  • Rearranged icon files so all are in the skin directory; packed the 29px, 24px, 19px, and 16px icons into a single file for use with the "-moz-image-region" style rule. The 32px and 64px ones must exist as individual files since they are referenced from places that don't accept icon-set images.
  • Converted first-run component to a module. This solves the problem of unreliable behavior in opening a new tab, since I can now use an overlay to import the module on window load. The module runs once on application startup and leaves no objects where it is imported.
  • Updated welcome page to mention the new commands in the context menu.
