Re: Secure Logon extension?

Ok ,I don't understand the point of that extension saved passwords?

It does nothing but show the passwords,it doesn't help with logging on to a site?

What am I missing?

Use the 'New' option (on the button/menu); helps if you're on the login page.

Click 'New':


to get the editor window:

I'm not sure if that's a reply to me.

I use the secure login extension, which fills in the password when logging in to a site.

I use the saved password editor, which allows me to save a password for a site, even for a site that normally doesn't want passwords to be saved.

It's the combination of the two that does what you asked (if I understood your question).

I think that happens when the site does not use a password form, but instead uses its own CGI script. They do that, to make sure that a password manager cannot be used.

They probably see this as a brilliant move to increase the security of their site. I see it as utterly stupid, and as actually weakening security.
