Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent addon, it does exactly what i wanted. Thank you for your time!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6). 

Very helpful. Has a flaw though. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Most useful addon for me!! Really convenient to use and serves the purpose completely.

However there is one thing, I would like to point out. This utilizes Mozilla's Saved Password utility for saving the passwords and therefore, has proper checks in place but one. The button, allowing the user to copy the password, is a weakness that can be exploited. I say this because, the same can then be pasted in any field thereby revealing it. And the username is always visible in Saved Password utility anyhow.
All this, while the master password is enabled.

The addon already has the functionality to copy the credentials in context menu and so the copy button could be done away with.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6). 

it is fixed now...

...Thanks for the feedback. I know that once you get into the password manager window there are no additional checks, and I thought long and hard about whether they should be introduced - like they are when the user clicks on the [Show Passwords] button. IMO asking for the Master Password once is sufficient; I want to avoid for the user having to do any additional clicks or actions.

So in 2.7 I have added a "Lock" icon to the password manager - if you plan on leaving your browser open unattended, simply click it to snap the lock shut before you close it.

The password manager will then ask for the master password next time you use QuickPasswords or do any password related operation. Here is the related feature request pagehttps://www.mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=25319

QuickPasswords and Saved Password Editor together are all what is needed (at least for me) for convenient password handling.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1). 

Works fine, phil (reviewer below) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

phil, this add-on seems to do what it's supposed to (for me and everyone else apparently). You seem to be confused... perhaps you were looking for the Saved Password Editor add-on? (The toolbar buttons for each add-on have a certain similarity, so maybe that's what has you confused?)

The only problem I've encountered with this add-on is the issue with the "standard" size (as in, not checking 'Use small icons' in toolbar customization panel) button being so large that it stretches the tool bar (and the other Fx buttons) vertically--I mean, the 'Back' button is no longer round (looks really weird) with this on the nav bar (which is the "big" bar). That's why only 4 stars... till it gets fixed. Even so, I might have given 5 if the dev hadn't said "that's not a bug" [sorry, yes it is]. The newer versions of Firefox have different standard button/icon sizes than the previous versions, so that needs to be worked on here.

UPDATE: OK, 1.9 takes care of the too large button/icon. Coolness. Thanks. 5 stars it is!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8). 

Phil's Review

thanks for the 5 stars! :)

OK, so now that this is fixed, lets move on to new features... Eventually I will have to come up with an even easier way of using it, something like an on page control, but that is going to take some time. In the meantime, you can suggest new features here:

====================
Phil's review went like this:

(rated 1 out of 5 stars)
There are NO instructions for loading websites into this program. It "found" a user/pw for only one site. This one. and that was wrong. IN Getting Started, he says:"Obviously this will only be useful if you have already stored passwords in the password manager." I'd say it's EQUALLY OBVIOUS that you have to tell us how. I rate this as JUNK

====================
Reacting to this review I added the following section to my post-installation instructions:

http://quickpasswords.mozdev.org/installation.html#whatsThePasswordManager
..., so hopefully this also going to be helpful for people new to the concept of storing Passwords in Firefox.
====================

thanks for using QuickPasswords!

Extends Firefox's built-in password manager Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There are sites where Firefox is unable to stick your logons, with QuickPasswords it will stick them there as well.
There are sites where Firefox is unable to remember your logons, with other great extension 'Saved Password Editor' it will remember there as well.
Both add-ons are very nicely thought and done, they are complementary.
EDITed : 'Password Editor' was, is of course 'Saved Password Editor'

QuickPassword Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension is complicated for nothing, I prefer Saved Password Editor.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6). 

Dear FastKC, I have seen SPE as well and find it very good, it is installed in my permanent extension collection - in fact I recommend installing it alongside QuickPasswords, I had discussed with the author of SPE.

But that doesn't support all of the functions the QuickPasswords does, like:

1. exporting the information to spreadsheets
2. changing multiple passwords
... and pasting the information to a different browser, or to a new tab! When developing or browsing big corporate sites, often I need the password / user information on different pages, e.g. www1.foo.com - www2.foo.com - support.foo.com etc. Another alternative extension "Secure Login" can only give you the right info if the page & form field names are exactly the same, and if the form is not programmed using FLASH.

3. oh and: retrieving the passwords from your mail client (thunderbird/seamonkey/postbox) depending on whether you are on a content page in a mail folder or on an email from a support person - it will try to filter out the relevant password for you even if there is no form visible.

So essentially this is a extension for a different purpose altogether.

I decided to keep the flow of QuickPasswords quite uniform, always through the master password and the Manager. I acknowledge that this can (and will) be streamlined even more, however that doesn't warrant a 1 star rating IMO. I won't complain about your review as there are plenty of people who find this very useful after giving it a chance, it takes all sorts :-)

As regards the feedback messages these can be disabled in options and the Manager window can close automatically, so it is still just 3 clicks to do a login where Firefox does not provide it automagically. I promise, future versions will have even less clicks!

I would only agree to "complicated for nothing" if logging in on the same browser was all that QuickPasswords could do for you.

btw, do please make suggestions or report bugs here: http://quickpasswords.mozdev.org/bugs.html
all and every feedback is welcome that can make the add-on better!

Display in browser context menu not working Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The "retrieve my password" option in the context menu is not showing. I am using Firefox 3.6.13 and QuickPasswords 1.3. Please fix this.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3). 

This is a feature :)

Actually, it does - but you have to click in an editable box (e.g. password or user name) to see it. I made that decision as some people were complaining about the menu item crowding up the context menu. If you think about it, it does make sense.

I have add an option to "always show" it in the up and coming version 1.4. Dear reviewers, can you please submit bugs / feature requests here: http://quickpasswords.mozdev.org/bugs.html

Just What I Needed! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is really terrific since I'm managing quite a lot of password data.

BTW: in the next version please don't REMOVE "retrieve a password" from the right click context menu - just make it an option so Niomi will be happy. The right-click is always a quicker (and better) option for me for most things.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Will do...

...I have added an option which will be landed in 1.3. Plus I am now only adding it to the context menu on editable fields (such as user name / password / etc.) so it won't be in the way when you're just right clicking an image or the page itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome extension. Can I get an option to remove "retrieve a password" from the right click context menu? Thanks.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

yes you can!

Ok, haven't got around to that one yet, I will try to add this feature to 1.3
