Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

[ Edited ]

On the download-page make a right-click on the download-link. Copy that one and paste it into the address-bar. Replace 5.0 with 4.0.1 and you can download it there...

 

Or just use this link:

http://www.mozilla.com/products/download.html?product=firefox-4.0.1&os=win&lang=en

 

(you may want to replace the os with linux if you are not running Windows; replace the language with your string if you are not interested in FF in English)

 

By the way: You can just "downgrade" from 5 to 4 by installing version 4 (even though the installer will say "upgrade"). It will keep your plugins, etc. as long as you override the v5-files.

Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

Well, now it's really messed up. I deinstalled FF5 and reinstalled FF4.01. But the error came up again. So I decided to clean up everything. Deinstalled FF, deinstalled the Lenovo patch, removed the traces it left in the registry and did a restart. Then installed FF4.01 and installed the patch. Now, starting up fine without error and the Password Manager 3.0 Add-on shows up in the FF add-on, but, it does not do anything. The password dialogue is never triggered. I can start websites from the password-manager application, but no passwords are filled in. Now I am running out of ideas.....

Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

It looks like the "solutions" like "do not install anything" are becoming a common practice for Lenovo.

 

What is the problem to make a FF extention compatible with any version up to 6.x, as soon as FF SDK allows this?!

 

Simply ridiculous!

Don't be so frustrated :smileyvery-happy:

 

Lenovo machines are great! Regarding software they may have a little conservative approach

 

Anyway I'm happy using my Thinkpad, forgot about Password manager a while ago...

For rest of you, including my wife, who love to use her ThinkPad fingerprint reader i have advice to switch to LastPass or something  simmilar.

 

Feel free to check following threads in very near future: Firefox 6 , Firefox 7  ...

 

Regards

Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

Firefox is more common among business users. Please Lenovo properly look at your plug-in just like others do. More aggressively make your Password Manager compatible with Firefox updates, pleaseeee.

 

Why haven't I heard anything about Password Manager for Google Chrome at all, by the way?
