Re: Secure Logon extension?

I did away with Secure Logon a while back. There was a long dry spell between updates and it was starting to fail on some site it previously worked on. I emailed the apparently new maintainers Abine, Inc. and received this response:

Hello Chris,

Sadly we no longer provide support for these products. At this point the best I can do is direct you to these two pages for support:
»securelogin.mozdev.org/securelogin.mozdev.org/)
and
»autofillforms.mozdev.org/autofillforms.mozdev.org/)
If you have any further questions or comments or need additional assistance, please feel free to email us back at info@abine.com (mailto:info@abine.com).

Cordially,

Tom
I see there was an update on November 25, 2012, that response was November 29, 2012. (shrug)

The Secure Logon Add-ons page is basically an advertisement for DoNotTrackMe. (My opinion)

That doesn't answer your question though.

You can try a JavaScript applet that clears a couple of settings the prevent your log-ins from being saved. It does not work on some sites. This is what I use.
javascript:(function(){var%20ca,cea,cs,df,dfe,i,j,x,y;function%20n(i,what){return%20i+%22%20%22+what+((i==1)?%22%22:%22s%22)}ca=cea=cs=0;df=document.forms;for(i=0;i<df.length;++i){x=df[i];dfe=x.elements;if(x.onsubmit){x.onsubmit=%22%22;++cs;}if(x.attributes[%22autocomplete%22]){x.attributes[%22autocomplete%22].value=%22on%22;++ca;}for(j=0;j<dfe.length;++j){y=dfe[j];if(y.attributes[%22autocomplete%22]){y.attributes[%22autocomplete%22].value=%22on%22;++cea;}}}alert(%22Removed%20autocomplete=off%20from%20%22+n(ca,%22form%22)+%22%20and%20from%20%22+n(cea,%22form%20element%22)+%22,%20and%20removed%20onsubmit%20from%20%22+n(cs,%22form%22)+%22.%20After%20you%20type%20your%20password%20and%20submit%20the%20form,%20the%20browser%20will%20offer%20to%20remember%20your%20password.%22)})();
 
Create a bookmark called Remember Password (or what ever you like), then paste that code in to the Location block of the bookmark. When you are on a site that does not save your password, open your Bookmarks and select Remember Password, then try logging in again and see if it prompt to save. Like I said it does not alway work.

Another option is to install Saved Password Editor (»addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox···-editor/). This extension lets you add new logins and edit existing ones. Pretty handy.

Then there is QuickPasswords (»addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox···sswords/). I am using this instead of Secure Logons, as I don't have much faith in Abine, Inc.

I really don't miss Secure Logon that much.
