One Password doesn't work as a plugin

Hello:

Does Firefox make it hard for OnePassword to work in the browser because they want us to use their manager? The OnePassword add-on is ghosted in the toolbar and can't be clicked or used.

Thanks!

One Password is responsible for making sure that their Firefox add-on / "plugin" is compatible with Firefox.
No. Mozilla does not make it hard, but beginning with Firefox the "rules" for side-loaded add-ons was changed. Perhaps OnePassword has "some fixing to do", assuming that they use a side-loaded add-on as other "security add-ons" have been doing.

IMO, too damn many add-ons never seem to follow Firefox development in the alpha & beta pre-release testing months which is where the of the "next" version of Firefox are made available (daily or twice a day, sometimes) for 3rd party testing and then find themselves behind the 8-ball when a new version is released to the end user. At that point the end user gets frustrated with their paid-for application which makes itself dependent upon working with Firefox.

Mozilla has no problem with users who want to use a 3rd party application, but 3rd party apps need to "follow the rules" to remain compatible with Firefox.

Thank you.

You are absolutely right. At the suggestion of a friend I downloaded the plugin from Firefox's plugin store instead of OnePassword. Works perfectly

Thanks again

Hilfreich?
