Version 2.9.6 258.2 KiB Works with Firefox 38.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.30 and later, Thunderbird 38.0 and later

  • Further fixed handling of "Show passwords"; some versions retain the button but have moved the associated locale strings out of the locales. So, now I check for getLegacyString() and call it if it exists.
  • Stopped using global const in pwdmgrOverlay-sm.js, so it should work again.

Version 2.9.5 258.2 KiB Works with Firefox 38.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.30 and later, Thunderbird 38.0 and later

  • Re-added code for Firefox menu.
  • Added code to check for the presence of the "Show passwords" toggle before trying to use it, since there is a possibility of it getting removed eventually. It's not entirely clear whether it will happen or what, but it's better to be safe about it.

Version 2.9.4 258.1 KiB Works with Firefox 38.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.30 and later, Thunderbird 38.0 and later

Removed global const that is broken by Fx 44.

  • Rewrote usage of deprecated FUEL API.
  • Updated locales
  • New locale: uk. Thanks to zint.

Version 2.9.1-signed 244.2 KiB Works with Firefox 31.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.25 and later, Thunderbird 31.0 and later

  • 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 in non-web browsers like Thunderbird too, in which case the Protocol Service is called to use the default application for each URL (usually your web browser).
  • 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.
  • New translator for pt-BR: Marco Aurélio Krause "ouesten"

Version 2.9b1 228.7 KiB Works with Firefox 31.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.25 and later, Thunderbird 31.0 and later

  • 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 2.8.3.1-signed 223.9 KiB 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 223.9 KiB 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 2.8.2.1-signed 223.9 KiB 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 2.8.1.1-signed 219.6 KiB 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 2.8.1-signed 219.5 KiB 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 2.7.3.1-signed 216.7 KiB 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 2.7.2.1-signed 210.6 KiB 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 2.7.1.1-signed 210.3 KiB 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 2.7.1-signed 224.8 KiB 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 2.7pre1 224.6 KiB 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.

Version 2.6.4.1-signed 190.5 KiB 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 2.6.3.1-signed 181.0 KiB 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 2.6.2.1-signed 190.0 KiB 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 2.6.1.1-signed 219.0 KiB 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 2.6.1-signed 219.0 KiB 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 2.5.1.1-signed 178.0 KiB 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 2.5.1-signed 182.0 KiB 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.
