Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

@JameZ,

 

After moving to Firefox 5.0.1 from FF 3.6.18 and installing CSS  8.30.0049.00 as well as css83_firefox5_patch_20110707.exe

for most - but not all - websites for which sign-in data is stored in my PWM database the following problem exists:

 

PWM doesn't fill in the UserID anymore, just the password.

 

Consequences are:

1. I have to remember (or look-up) my website-specific UserID

2. I have to type in the website-specific UserID.

3. i'm not able anymore to automatically send sign-in data (although activated), e.g. to http://www.comdirect.de.

 

Please help.

 

The good news: Sign-in into this forum (http://forums.lenovo.com.....) works as expected.....:-)

 

Windows 7 (32-bit), FF 5.0.1, CSS 8.30.0049.00, patch/ix applied.

Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

Hello JameZ, sorry for bothering you, but could you possibly provide a status update regarding the situation for German Windows 7 64 bit systems? My problems reported here two weeks ago still persist. Can we hope that the engineering team is already checking out Firefox 6, scheduled for release on August 16th (according to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases)? Thanks for your help!

Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

another problem i've been having with the password manager is that sometimes it fills the fields but doesn't press enter. its a small problem but its annoying sometimes. i do have "auto-submit" option checked too. another problem is that the software wrongfully detects fields as username/password. so even though if there is no need for username or password, it still asks me for a fingerprint. if these problems can be fixed that would be great.

Just confirming the problems set out in messages 91 and 93, but they are not new with the latest PWM extension release, and there are other, long-standing problems: e.g.. with the prior version, visiting almost any Amazon product page would trigger multiple fingerprint authentication requests.

If Lenovo could figure out a way so that the extension would use the built-in Firefox ID/password web page field recognition capabilities (which rarely make mistakes or miss recognizing fields that are coded in discoverable HTML, i.e. not some kind of inaccessible Flash) to trigger the PWM storage or authentication dialogs, that would be a great improvement.

The Firefox developers are in a much better position to maintain capabilities for this kind of form-field recognition anyway; Lenovo should concentrate on integrating PWM into Frefox.

Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

@mafo,

I haven't receive any ETA on the German vesion yet however the team said they are fixing this and also the other website compatibility issues as well.

Will drop a note to the team of the release of FF6.

@Ernstmuc,

Would need to check with engineering on that too.

@kevinf,

I get that a lot too on the FF5, doesnt seem to happen to me when I was on FF4

Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

Re: Password Manager compatibility issue with FireFox 5

I have updated to Firefox 6, and Password Manager seems to work fine. Firefox does not mark it as incompatible, either.
