Firefox Won’t Remember / Save Passwords For AutoComplete – How To Fix It?

Settings The Firefox To Remember Password And ID Permanently for Always Auto-Complete

Firefox web browser is one of the best browsers. As we know there are lots of features in this browser, lets that is now look at another one of its innumerable features. Firefox web browser contains an inbuilt feature which is password manager.

Password manager feature saves and stores usernames, passwords and other information to auto-fill or auto-complete the signing up process or any logon text fields, which will help the users when they visit the website for the next time.

On the other hand, both the Firefox version 2 plus Firefox version 3, are incapable or did not really prompt of offer the user an option to memorize and save the password. Hence Firefox would not store up the password and information for AutoFill or AutoComplete.

We have found the work around with “Save Password Bookmarklet” which compels the Firefox to remember and save the ID and password on the websites which are using.

The “AutoComplete=Off” setting can also be tweaked to initiate browser to save the common fields.

However, the bookmarklet which is based on JavaScript has to be run and activated each and every time when user needs Firefox to prompt choice to remember password, or else it would not allow the password saving on the web sites.

Additionally, some user might even show their dissatisfaction by saying that the hack provided for bookmarklet doesn’t works correctly in Firefox version 3, to compel Firefox browser to store and save the password and ID.

Now here is one more trick to make Firefox disregard all turned off or stopped AutoComplete requests by the websites like Yahoo!, PayPal, email service providers, Internet Banking service providers, and some of the other protected sites.

Due to this security measure, the browser will offer the user with an option to remember or save the ID and password temporarily. For a second time, the hack merely works on that websites which uses the “AutoComplete=Off” type of parameter to stop the ID and password saving characteristic in web browser.

You have to go to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\components file folder, after that edit the file named as “nsLoginManager.js”. This enables the user to Auto Complete password and ID on all websites or on all the web pages, regardless to the setting of the respective websites.

Then locate the given code lines (locate around the line 725 to 727 in Firefox version 3). Here you have to comment out the lines by using the simple codes // (the double slash) where the lines begin. Basically, you will be converting those code lines as mere statements or text by using the double slash.

Follow the code lines given below

Before;

if (element && element.hasAttribute (“autocomplete”) &&
element.getAttribute (“autocomplete”).toLowerCase() == “off”)
return true;

After;

// if (element && element.hasAttribute(”autocomplete”) &&
// element.getAttribute(”autocomplete”).toLowerCase() == “off”)
// return true;

As soon as the editing ends, save file and then restart your Firefox browser. Now all the passwords are saved along with ID.

Skype extras disabled?

It baffled me that while everyone had got Skype extras easily installed on their PCs and I just couldn’t get the wretched .sparc file to work, no matter what I did, I just could not get Skype Extras button to enable. The reason? turns out the “extras manager” isn’t installed by default you have to manually click on “options” when installing Skype and check the option to install the “extras manager”.

It took me a while to find out, so I figured I’d blog about it. Hope it helps!

Free Easy To Use Password Manager For Windows

Free Easy To Use Password Manager For Windows

KeePass Password Safe is a free, open source, light-weight and easy-to-use password manager for Windows. You can store your passwords in a highly-encrypted database, which is locked with one master password or key file.

Related post: Free software to create strong and secure passwords.

Today you need to remember many passwords. You need a password for the Windows network logon, your e-mail account, your homepage’s FTP password, online passwords (like website member account), etc. etc. etc. The list is endless. Also, you should use different passwords for each account. Because if you use only one password everywhere and someone gets this password you have a problem… A serious problem. The thief would have access to your e-mail account, homepage, etc. Unimaginable.

KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).

KeePass is really free, and more than that: it is open source (OSI certified). You can have a look at its full source and check whether the encryption algorithms are implemented correctly.

KeePass Features

Strong Security :

# KeePass supports the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES, Rijndael) and the Twofish algorithms to encrypt its password databases.
# Both of these ciphers are regarded as very secure by the cryptography community. Banks are using these algorithms for example, too.
# Even if you would use all computers in the world to attack one database, decrypting it would take longer than the age of the universe.
# Even quantum computers won’t help that much. The algorithms are symmetric so its complexity would be reduced a bit, anyway, the sun will go nova before you have decrypted the database.
# The complete database is encrypted, not only the password fields. So your usernames, notes, etc. are protected, too.
# SHA-256 is used as password hash. SHA-256 is a 256-bit cryptographically secure one-way hash function. Your master password is hashed using this algorithm and its output is used as key for the encryption algorithms.
# In contrast to many other hashing algorithms, no attacks are known yet against SHA-256.
# Protection against dictionary and guessing attacks: by transforming the final master key very often, dictionary and guessing attacks can be made harder.
# In-Memory Passwords Protection: Your passwords are encrypted while KeePass is running, so even when the operating system caches the KeePass process to disk, this wouldn’t reveal your passwords anyway.
# [2.x] Protected In-Memory Streams: When loading the inner XML format, passwords are encrypted using a session key.
# Security-Enhanced Password Edit Controls: KeePass is the first password manager that features security-enhanced password edit controls. None of the available password edit control spies work against these controls. The passwords entered in those controls aren’t even visible in the process memory of KeePass.

Multiple User Keys :

# One master password decrypts the complete database.
# Alternatively you can use key files. Key files provide better security than master passwords in most cases. You only have to carry the key file with you, for example on a floppy disk, USB stick, or you can burn it onto a CD. Of course, you shouldn’t lose this disk then.
# For even more security you can combine the above two methods: the database then requires the key file and the password in order to be unlocked. Even if you lose your key file, the database would remain secure.
# [2.x] Additionally, you can lock the database to the current Windows user account. The database can then only be opened by the same person who created it.

Export To TXT, HTML, XML and CSV Files :

# The password list can be exported to various formats like TXT, HTML, XML and CSV.
# The XML output can be easily used in other applications.
# The HTML output uses cascading style sheets (CSS) to format the table, so you can easily change the layout.
# The CSV output is fully compatible with most other password safes like the commercial closed-source Password Keeper and the closed-source Password Agent, also the CSVs can be imported by spreadsheet applications like Microsofts Excel or OpenOffice’s Calc.
# Many other file formats are supported through KeePass plugins.

Import From Many File Formats :

# KeePass uses the common CSV export format of various passwords safes like Password Keeper and Password Agent. Exports from these programs can be easily imported to your KeePass databases.
# KeePass can parse and import TXT outputs of CodeWalletPro, a commercial closed-source password safe.
# KeePass can import TXT files created by Bruce Schneier’s Password Safe v2.
# [2.x] Out of the box, KeePass supports importing more than 25 formats.
# Many other file formats are supported through KeePass plugins.

Easy Database Transfer :

# A password database consists of only one file that can be transferred from one computer to another easily.
