Version 2.8.3 229.3 kB Works with Firefox 31.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.25 and later, Thunderbird 31.0 and later

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

Version 2.8.3b1 229.3 kB Works with Firefox 31.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.25 and later, Thunderbird 31.0 and later

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

Version 2.8.2 229.3 kB Works with Firefox 31.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.25 and later, Thunderbird 31.0 and later

  • Changed "Guess from current page" to use HTMLInputElement instead of Components.interfaces.nsIDOMHTMLInputElement.
  • Changed "Guess from current page" to read form's "action" property instead of the "action" attribute. The attribute can contain any form of relative URL, which is a pain to normalize, whereas the property is already normalized.
  • Added sl-SI locale. Thanks to Peter Klofutar.

Version 2.8.1 224.9 kB Works with Firefox 31.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.25 and later, Thunderbird 31.0 and later

Fixed bug with "Save login info" context menu item, where a non-URL form action (such as "javascript:") leads to a JavaScript error. This was because the code assumed the action is a valid URL when looking at the results of a regular expression evaluation.

This is fixed by setting a value of "javascript:", as a special case for actions with that scheme (as the Password Manager itself seems to do), and checking that the regexp returns non-null in other cases; otherwise, the form is rejected. I implemented this for the "Guess from current page" button as well.

Version 2.8 224.7 kB Works with Firefox 31.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.25 and later, Thunderbird 31.0 and later

  • Catch exceptions from password manager modifyLogin() and display as popups, as exceptions are from other similar calls.
  • Improvements to editor data validation and error prevention:
    • Validate Host field as well as Submit prefix or Annotation (depending on login type) to make sure they are not empty when about to add or modify it; if one of these is empty, display an appropriate popup error, and refuse to proceed.
    • When multi-editing, disable the Submit prefix and/or Annotation fields, depending on what types of logins are being edited, in order to prevent duplicates that would arise by setting those fields.

Version 2.7.3 221.9 kB Works with Firefox 24.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.25 and later, Thunderbird 24.0 and later

New locale: it. Thanks to Leopoldo Saggin.

Version 2.7.2 215.6 kB Works with Firefox 17.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.14 and later, Thunderbird 17.0 and later

  • Updated toolbar button to better integrate with Australis UI.
  • Updated all references to my email address.

Version 2.7.1 215.3 kB Works with Firefox 17.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.14 and later, Thunderbird 17.0 and later

  • Update locales.
  • Toolbar button auto-add for some windows (once only, of course, and being careful not to move the button if it's already in a toolbar).

Version 2.7 230.2 kB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.7 and later, Thunderbird 10.0 and later

  • 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 2.6.4 195.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

  • Correct error in pl locale.
  • Correct usage of window-global variable no longer present in Saved Passwords as of 18.0a2 or so.

Version 2.6.3 185.3 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

Fixed bug in form guessing logic that caused an error with no "type" attribute.

Version 2.6.2 194.6 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

Fix bug in recognizing annotated type in multi-edit.

Version 2.6.1 224.3 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

Fixed overzealousness which caused "Firefox" menu item to be in the wrong place.

Version 2.6 224.3 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

  • 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.
  • Made detection of login form field types case-insensitive.

Version 2.5.1 182.3 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

  • New translator for bg: pl99.
  • Now allowing web form logins for Thunderbird.
  • Removed Password Tags integration from editor window. There are issues regarding the API as well as concurrent database access that I need to work out; once I do, I might bring this back.

Version 2.5 186.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

Changes from 2.2.6:
  • 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.
  • 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 2.5pre3 146.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.1 and later

  • Attempting to optimize first-run module.

Version 2.2.6 163.8 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • Moved Master Password prompt to after the editor window is already displayed, in an attempt to resolve reported issue with the prompt appearing behind the Saved Passwords window on recent Firefox under Windows 7.
  • Split Show/Hide button into two separate buttons, in order to get rid of redundant strings in locale properties files.
  • Split locale files into window-specific files.
  • fi: Jiipee (BabelZilla)

Version 2.2.5 147.5 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • Updated pt-BR, pt-PT, and zh-TW locales.
  • Updated compatibility for Conkeror.

Version 2.2.3 147.5 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • Renamed references to Firefox menu (Windows and Linux) to be less obscure.
  • Updated welcome page text to better reflect reality (e.g. context menu).
  • Increased welcome page delay timer from 3000 to 3500.
  • Switched to using 32px icon as small add-on icon, only as icon.png (removed <iconURL> element in install.rdf). Switched to using 64px icon in welcome page. Deleted 32px and 48px icons from skin directory, as they are no longer being used.
  • Deleted chrome/icons, since those icons are not used much.
  • Ran remaining icons through pngcrush to reduce their size.
  • Fixed another bug related to SeaMonkey Data Manager.

Version 2.2.1 164.9 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • Updated eo locale
  • hsb-DE: milupo (BabelZilla)

Version 2.2 160.8 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • Changed password editor window to not ask for Master Password for an initially shown password if passwords are already being displayed in the Saved Passwords list.
  • Added option to have password in editor window be shown if and only if passwords are being shown in the Saved Passwords list.
  • New feature: when using "Guess from current page", in case there is more than one suitable login form, allow the user to select among them using buttons next to the "Guess" button.
  • Made guessing work with XHTML (application/xhtml+xml).
  • Added tooltip to menu items.

Version 2.1.1 155.6 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

Oops, Object.create() doesn't work before Fx 4.0 and equivalents. Fix.

Version 2.1 155.6 kB Works with Firefox 3.5 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • New feature: multiple selections now allowed for editing. Useful if, for instance, you have similar credentials on many sites, or many accounts on one site, and you need to change them en masse.

    All of the selected logins must be of the same type (web form, HTTP, other). Fields that differ among the selections are represented by a light checkerboard pattern, indicating an indeterminate value. Anything entered in any of the fields is written to all selected logins, but fields left indeterminate are not changed.

    Note that the Tags field (convenience for those with Password Tags installed) doesn't behave in the above way and in fact is turned off when editing multiple logins.

Version 2.0.6 156.7 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

  • Modified form matching for password editor: now requires username and password fields to have non-empty name attributes. For the future: implement a way for all forms considered valid to be offered to user, in case there are multiple login forms on the page.
  • Fixed glitch in menu-button behavior, where it would not revert to "new" state for non-singular selections after the editor dialog was cancelled.
  • zh-CN: yfdyh000 (BabelZilla)

Version 2.0.5 156.7 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.1b3, Thunderbird 3.0 - 3.3a3pre

  • Fixed bug introduced in 2.0.3 making menu-button default behave incorrectly.
  • Now preserves password selection (except with "New" command) and scroll position when adding/editing/cloning a password.
