QuickPasswords Version History

37 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 3.10 315.0 KiB Works with Firefox 22.0 - 56.*, SeaMonkey 2.19 - 2.49.*, Thunderbird 22.0 - 60.*

  • [Bug 26491] ESR 2018 readiness - Make QuickPasswords compatible with Thunderbird 60
  • Updated Arabic and Serbian locales.
  • To use in Waterfox, open about:config and set extensions.legacy.enabled = true

Version 3.9 307.9 KiB Works with Firefox 22.0 - 56.*, SeaMonkey 2.19 - 2.48.*, Thunderbird 22.0 - 57.*

  • Removed support for Firefox 57+ - legacy addons do not work with Firefox. I am currently working with another developer to find a solution for Firefox Quantum. If it is at all possible we will release it under the code name Quantum Passwords.
    Please refer to this video on what's happening and how to get legacy addons back: https://youtu.be/4xWn5NWlLmE
  • Fixed: [Bug 26443] Thunderbird 57 hangs on start with QuickPasswords enabled. <p> Thunderbird 57 did not show its main window if any of my XUL based addons are loaded. A number of changes to the JavaScript engine necessitate various changes to code.

  • [Bug 26365]Firefox 53.0 Magic Wand misplaced. The button shows too far down in the dialog.
  • AutoLocking the Masterpassword broken
  • Spanish Argentinian Locale added: Thanks to Eduardo Leon at Babelzilla.org

Version 3.8.3 302.2 KiB Works with Firefox 22.0 - 56.*, SeaMonkey 2.19 - 2.50.*, Thunderbird 22.0 - 52.*

  • [Bug 26343] Unified password change not working.
    When the Change password button is clicked, instead there is an error message, "tree is not defined".
    Note: you cannot use the login and repair buttons when the logins are shown within the about:preferences#security browser tab;
    therefore I disabled these buttons unless the dialog window is shown (by clicking on the QuickPasswords toolbar button or context menu from a website).
  • Disabled Login and Repair buttons when the login list is shown from the Options tab which is shown at the URI about:preferences#security

Mozilla is going to eventually terminate XUL based addons, so it is important that our functionality stays supported on this Firefox fork. Here is a Mozilla blog post explaining their plans. Although from Firefox version 57 no new XUL addons will be accepted, but I will still be able to maintain / update my existing Firefox addons, until Mozilla decides that they will not be supported by Firefox anymore.

Version 3.8.2 301.9 KiB Works with Firefox 22.0 - 51.*, SeaMonkey 2.19 - 2.46.*, Thunderbird 22.0 - 47.*

Version 3.8.1 301.6 KiB Works with Firefox 22.0 - 51.*, SeaMonkey 2.19 - 2.46.*, Thunderbird 22.0 - 47.*

  • Mozilla is going to eventually terminate XUL based addons, so it is important that our functionality stays supported on the Pale Moon Firefox fork. Here is a Mozilla blog post explaining their plans.
  • Fixed oversized sliding notification alert
  • Removed some of the code causing "unsafe CPOW usage" warnings
  • [Bug 26329]
    Copying / Autofiltering stopped working in Fx 51 - This was caused by Firefox 51 stopping to expose the signonsTree in the saved logins window.
  • [Bug 26330]
    Fx51: Firefox e10s may cause failure of "Login to Website".
    to make sure e10s stays disabled, set browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2 = false<br>
    As a workaround I added flag for e10s compatibility; once Firefox completely forces multiprocess on its users this won't work anymore. I am currently trying to find a paid developer who can help rewriting the addon to make it multi-process compatible, while maintaining compatibility with the other host apps (Thunderbird / Seamonkey) that do not need multiprocess.

(Many pages have multiple forms, some of them hidden) Only then it will insert matching information username / password or both. If something cannot be matched, then the context menu entry of the missing field(s) is added as a fallback, like in the previous version.
