Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

[ Edited ]

Got  CSS 0020 installed but cannot get the XP 32 bit patch to download correctly (tried again several times and it finally succeeded) . It is supposed to be 910KB but I only get 60 - 80kb or 700kb but never the complete file. What gives?  I tried putting on my download list but when I went to download it Lenovo wants me to install some crapware from Akami. I want the patch not more crapware.

I was running FF 4.0.1 and I installed CSS 6.0.0020 and the the FF5 patch successfully then installed FF 5.0 and  I get the PWM java script error. So how do I fix this? I guess the sequence is to install CSS 0020 and FF5 in any order but save the patch until last. Reinstalled the patch and the error message disappears.

 

This FF fast cycle bent is a catastrophe IMHO. Other add-on are disabled as well.

Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

 

After updating CSS to  8.21.0020.00 and patching with

CSS 8.21 patch for Firefox 4 and 5 for Windows Vista(32-bit,64-bit), XP (32-bit)

the password manager didn't work with ff5 (see my post of yesterday)

 

After some more tests I  found out the reason.

FF5 - Add-on  "ThinkVantage Password Manager 3.0" tries to open the library "tvtpwm_moz_jsctypes.dll" in folder "C:\Program Files\Lenovo\Client Security Solution".

But in German versions "Client Security Solution" (like all ThinkVantage-programs) is  installed in "C:\Programme\Lenovo\Client Security Solution". Just for testing I created a path "C:\Program Files\Lenovo\" and copied the folder "Client Security Solution" to this path.  After that, the password manager worked with ff5 as it should be.

Final remarks: For German systems the patch

CSS 8.21 patch for Firefox 4 and 5 for Windows Vista(32-bit,64-bit), XP (32-bit)

doesn't work. LENOVO will have to fix it.
Users with German Systems will still have to wait for a final solution - hopefully soon!

Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

Hello All,

 

Win 7 CSS here

 

Patch for FF5 here

 

As usual ... Update the Win 7 CSS first then only patch the FF5.

 

Close FF5 before patching and reboot the machine ones patch has been done.

Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

In the list of supported systems in the instructions txt file, there is no mention of ThinkPad T420.  Does the CSS patch apply to T420 running Win 7?

Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

The DL process is now prompting me to install some app from:

http://www.akamai.com/client

Why would I want to do THAT? I'm perfectly happy with the old methods of TV SU and FTP.

Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

@PSUpete,

Akamai Client is used for you to "Add to cart" the drivers which you want from the support site. Once you have "add to cart" all the drivers which you need, you can click download and it will download the drivers which you have added to cart.

This is to simplify downloads when customer is download heaps of drivers from the support site.

Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

I have updated my Win 7 (64-bit) system with the latest CSS and FF5 patch and can report that the password manager is working as it should

 

Again, a big thanks to Lenovo for responding to this issue so quickly.
