Pablo please help me with a fix for the OSX version of PrivacySuite. Because I love this app so much for the same reason as you, the website login, as well as the anonymous forwarding email accounts I am stuck on FireFox V37 (The last compatible version from the Dev.) which is becoming less functional and compatible. Please help with a fix for OSX. I have tried all I can with my somewhat limited knowledge and I am at an impass. . . Anyone that can contribute please do.
This was the very best add on, I loved it! then they made it better...NOT with MASK me, and now that is discontinued for an even "better", NOT EVEN called Do not track me, what a pain to use. Please go back to PrivacySuite. At least update it so it works with the current and future Fire Fox. Please?
Please, Please, Please develop an Android app of PrivacySuite! Hopefully some other people will chime in and ask as well. This addon is one of my absolute favorites on PC. Couldn't live without it..;) Oh, by the way, PrivacySuite is incompatible with FF 33.0.2. Thanks!
Nice beta fix!
Just locate the "install.rdf" file as instructed by Pablo's post. Open with wordpad and edit the line:

To the reviewer who posted the Beta Fix, THANK YOU!
I also have to agree that responses to updating this extension have always been quite slow. Over time, I have been known to not update my FF just to be able to keep this extension working.
The Beta Fix is a Godsend - Thank you!
I love this Addon for its "Website Login Capabilities Only"
I can never remember all the logins and passwords that I create.
Full Information on this Beta Fix "PrivacySuite 0.756 Beta 1" can be found at the following link
(You can open and edit .xpi files with winrar but you must Copy the file to your Desktop before editing)
To the Abine Team I say Please set this Addon to be Compatible to FF v999.*
Your response to compatibility requests are terrible... Update the Addon... Thank you

5* Website Login Addon when Compatible with FF v30+ (Let me know if this helps anyone)
Same issue as Cherokee posted on June 23, 2014. If anyone solves the problem, please post it here!
My rating would otherwise have been 4 star!
I enjoyed using the product for some time, but now find I can no longer block masked emails created with PrivacySuite. PrivacySuite also no longer shows up in Abine's product list. Now they have MaskMe for this function. While MaseMe will import your passwords from from PriacySuite, it will not import your masked emails, so it appears we've lost all control of old masked email addresses. Flying wonderful!
This is the second time, that I am aware of, where Abine apparently has abandoned a product, providing no notification to users, or method of cleaning up the wreckage they've left behind.
While I understand that these products are free, with primium options, and therefore may be found unprofitable; I think I may be about done with ABINE. Though I tend to like their products, abandonment seems to create issues with excessive risks, or at least intolerable irritants.
I have enjoyed using this product for a while but the repeating issues with firefox updates is infuriating!
In response to the develpers last answer to this question, since I didn't want to wait to access my banking/phone/cable etc., information;
from(by Abine, Inc., the online privacy company (Developer) on September 19, 2013 ),
"...2), in MaskMe, go under 'Settings' and scroll down; 3), you'll see an option to import your data from Privacy Suite, so just follow the steps on screen :)"
Well, after my investigation, it seems that since privacysuite is disabled at the time, the "settings" page does not detect it as being installed so it doesn't provide the option. At least, that seems to be what was happening in my case. I tried refreshing the page and restarting firefox and still, no option on the settings page. So I downloaded the setup for firefox 23.0.1 from a page that didn't redirect to mozilla, installed, found the privacysuite icon missing, though it is still installed and enabled, and the maskme icon is in it's place.
I added the privacysuite icon back, went to the maskme settings page and viola! The option to import was there.
Basically, your answer didn't/doesn't work.
Next question, when are you approximating an update for firefox 24 support?
It's been over a week, hasn't it?
Does all of your software have these update issues with firefox?
We have a version of PrivacySuite that's compatible with Firefox 24, but it always takes some time for it to be posted on the add-ons site. You can get it directly at this link: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/228487/privacysuite-0.754-fx.xpi

I love this program will it be updated to run on FireFox 24?The password organizer is invaluable.
This import option is not there for me on the settings page.
Hey there and glad to hear you find our products invaluable. We're working on it, but in the mean time I'd urge you to check out MaskMe, which is the new and much-improved privacy tool we launched that has all of PrivacySuite's features. You can export all of your PrivacySuite data into MaskMe by following these steps: 1), download MaskMe (it's in the Firefox add-ons store, or you can get it from www.abine.com/maskme); 2), in MaskMe, go under 'Settings' and scroll down; 3), you'll see an option to import your data from Privacy Suite, so just follow the steps on screen :)
Thanks, and let us know if you have any questions.
-The Abine Team
Anyone having trouble with Privacy Suite not working, it may be due to a conflicting Add on. Fastest Fox will leave the Privacy Suite interface unresponsive. You will be able to sign in to websites using the master password but the gui will not work
Thank you for making this such a worthy adds-on, I have no problem with my Firefox 19.0.2
Please make it compatible with DoNotTrackMe adds-on, so these 2 useful adds-on can collaborate together in Firefox browser without have to disable one of this adds-on.
It's so easy to just click on the logins and forms button to login and fill out forms- no more keeping a record of all the different logins. For form filling you can set different types, it also generates an anonymous one which links to the mail address of your choice, I like this option for petitions. If you fill out a form differently, it will ask if you want to update your form. I find it awesome to see how many trackers there are on a website, and Abine even identifies them.
There are so many options, I don't know where to stop so I'll just say: if you are chaotic like me, have a ton of logins (who doesn't these days), or don't like to be used for tracking by sneaky companies, maybe even aren't that much into web privacy -like me- and want something to do this for you and provide you with options you didn't even know existed.. This is it. So easy and effective!
It does take some time to set everything, but once this is done, I think you will be pleased.
I didn't know how much I depend on this add-on, until it was gone. Thanks to fullofwit for taking the effort of posting how to fix it, I am happy once again too.
love this app. for those having problems with firefox 17.0.1 just check below download now and see: view other versions. the latest update is 0.750. I accessed it by looking via google chrome and pasted it to firefox and now I'm a happy customer once again.
love this add on. works pretty well most of the time. same problem as previous posters in firefox 17-everytime i close browser it disables. please fix!
I love this Add-On, but I'm having trouble with it on Fx 17.0 & now 17.0.1.Every time I close and reopen the browser, Privacy Suite is disabled. The only way to make it work again is to check Add-On updates and then restart Fx. Then it works until I close the browser. The next time I reopen it, Privacy Suite is disabled (as incompatible) again.
One of, if not the best security addons for Firefox. The support is excellent too.
This privacy suite is a must for your privacy protection on the web, it works like a charm, lots of features to customize your protection as you like to be.
Very addicted to this excellent add-on. Thanks for updating and calming my online nerves!
Thanks for updating. Surfing feels much safer :) Keep it up!
I love this addon, but I'm in the same boat as everyone else. I'd love to find out how to access my logins whenever this happens, as it seems to happen every time Firefox is updated. Very inconvenient, these little "gaps" between updates.
As a follow-up to a previous review, Abine still doesn't answer their support requests. I wonder if they even read them. Too, in my experience, their chat support is mostly a joke. Still, you may want to consider using PrivacySuite. Even though its GUI couldn't be much more quirky, it does have some merit. Do know, however, that if you run into problems, even with paid features, Abine isn't going to lift a finger to support you.
we're sorry about the issues you experienced with support. Please cut and paste this email and address it to "rob and kristina" and we'll see to it you get better treatment than in the past.
I have been using Abine for quite a while and I have mostly very good things to say about it. However, one of my favorite features (Safe Email) stopped working about 9 months ago and though I have contacted support multiple times about this, it has not been fixed - very disappointing. This feature is so important to the PrivacySuite I can't believe it still doesn't work. My real email is registered and all of the "Safe Email" addresses show that they are being forwarded to my real email, but they never are forwarded.
I really wish they would fix this feature so I could give this add-on the high rating it deserves. It should be noted however that form filling is not perfect, but it is pretty good and getting better.
Please, fix Safe Email.
Sorry to hear about the issue you're having with safe email. We're actually beta testing a totally new privacy tool called MaskMe that takes everything we've learned from PrivacySuite and really, really improves upon it. One of its core features is safe email, and it works great. You can try it out at https://www.abine.com/maskme. Note that you can't currently import your PrivacySuite logins and account info, but we're working on a way to do that in the future.
I think, I have tried it earlier.
It needs a paid registration to get all features??????///
This is a good plugin. However, you cannot delete any safe emails after the newest first page. I alerted about this months ago and told a fix would be made. It has not. Get on it please.
To confirm: you can turn off and on safe emails but cannot delete any beyond the first page? Is that correct? Our apologies for not getting to this issue faster.
