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 Smiley Very 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?
