On Arch Linux x86_64 this will break Firefox Sync and may possibly break it on other distributions.

Not working with Firefox 32 on fedora20 :'( Rated 3 out of 5 stars
it used to work, but it doesn't work now after updating firefox.
Domain or URL on the password description Rated 4 out of 5 stars
At the moment, an UUID or hash is used on the entry description of the password in the keyring.
Could be possible to use the domain or the URL on the description field, so it would be easier to find the entry related to a web site ?
Thank you very much,
Very helpful, but does not work with Ffx 32 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very helpful addon, please make it work again with Firefox 32+. Many thanks!
Stopped working with FF32 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I love this addon. Unfortunately, it stopped working with FF32 on Ubuntu 14.04 64bit.
The latest version seems to work well (edit: stopped working) Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I've installed the latest version of the extension (0.2) in Ubuntu 13.10 (64-bit) in Firefox 29.0 and Thunderbird 24.5.0, and it seems to work correctly without using any workarounds.
New passwords are now stored in the Gnome Keyring and not in my profile's signons.sqlite database, although the old ones are still there (maybe the extension could offer an option on first run or in the preferences to move those passwords to the Keyring?).
It would be nice if the extension asked on first run (if possible) the name for the keyring (although that can be done later in the preferences, no it's not a big problem).
It would also be nice if the names of the keys in the Gnome Keyring would be more "human-readable" (unless they are like that due to security reasons).
EDIT: As others mentioned, it stopped working in Firefox 32!
64-bit Solution Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Hi all,I wrote about my solution to the 64bit problem some months ago, but mozilla deleted the comment. I will try it again:I have set up a github repository containing a copy of the original author's svn repository. I made a minor bugfix and some minor improvements and succeeded in compiling a usable 64bit library. The lib works well even with the latest FF or TB for me and some others who succeeded in contacting me via e-mail.The github repo:https://github.com/toaster/mozilla-gnome-keyringUPDATE (regarding JS Compiler): I had experienced the original crashes half a year ago on 64bit Linux while having no problems on 32bit Linux. A recompile produced a working library without changing anything in Firefox.I am using this library since then and it works without any problems. My baselinejit.* options are still enabled (default). I venture to doubt that this is the core of the problem.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1-signed). This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

Same problem here: stopped working with Thundbird (Icedove ) 24 on Debian 64 bit. i.e. icedove segfaults on startup. Works with the previous version (thunderbird /icedove 17)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1-signed).

This addon is really a need but I can confirm the crash on x64.
toaster666 could you share the fix somehow?

Great idea, but it crashes firefox when syncing.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1-signed).
Works well with Firefox Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Works as expected here, using Firefox 23.0.
Would it be possible to use human readable names (i.e. the website's name) for the keys stored in the keyring? This would make it easier to view and manage passwords with seahorse.
thunderbird segfault Rated 1 out of 5 stars
creating new keyring 'unknown'
clicking on saved passwords in settings crashes Thunderbird, unable to start thunderbird again -> segfault
had to start in safe-mode to remove this addon
migrate saved passwords to gnome-keyring would be really useful instead of ask for every password that was already saved
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Cool idea but two things:
1. empty name crashes thunderbird -- testing on 17.0.7
2. I wanted to use Default keyring name but despite writing Default (with capital D) it wants to create default. Is there a way to fix it?

A vital security feature that really should be incorporated directly into Linux/Gnome builds of Firefox. Sorely needing since development of Mozilla-Gnome-Keyring (xul-ext-gnome-keyring) seems to have stalled.
Alas, this version (v0.1) of the extension seems to crash Firefox 21, Thunderbird 17 and 20b. Otherwise I'd have given it a 4/5. It's early days though, so I'll keep it installed (but disabled) and test periodically.
Thanks for taking the time to develop this. :-)
