I am sorry to hear that, but I am not aware that Firefox had a password exporter. Which functionality were you using?

I was using two add ons. Password exporter and show my password.

Now. They are both gone and so is my ability to look at my saved passwords.

Now, I have to start over with another password program and try to remember my passwords.

It's a bunch of crap!!!

A fellow contributor has come back to me about this and the thinking is that you had an add-on installed.

Add-ons are developed by independent developers. The developer of this add-on has explained that "This add-on won't work in Firefox 57. It may eventually if the APIs to access passwords are implemented."

As part of the work to make Firefox Quantum fast and more secure, some the permissions used by some add-ons have been changed.

Yes, I was using add ons.

How convenient of Firefox to disregard their users and break much used add on's like that.

No warning, no apology, just gee, sorry. We allowed it before and decided to change our mind.

Please pound sand.

After all, the add on's was the only way to get this functionality in firefox.

Thanks again firefox for completely ignoring your users. I will be looking for another browser now.

Yes, this was an exceptionally terrible move on Mozilla's part. I was also using Password Exporter because Mozilla has never thought that this function was important.

Now I can't roll back to the older version, can't use the new one. Way to go, Mozilla! Trash thousands of your users with a thoughtless silent update.

You wanna hear something really cute.

I installed roboform and then tried to import my old passwords from firefox and roboform says I dont have firefox installed, but it allows me to import from the microsoft browser as it says it IS installed. But "I" dont use the microsoft browser!!!!

Mozilla, you suck donkey balls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
