How do i prevent long list of login credential suggestions

Posted

Hi all,

All of a sudden i get a long list of login credentials suggestions. Normally FF would only just present login cred suggestions for the site name i'm trying to log on, but now i get a long list of them. Also for sites that i'm not on. Is this one of the 'virtues' of LockWise?

What happend along the way, and can i turn this 'feature' off so that i only get login credential suggestions for the site i'm actually trying to log on?

This feature is mentioned in release notes: Firefox now suggests saved logins from other subdomains of a site.

To turn it off, enter about:config in the url bar and set signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup = false.

Thanks @TyDraniu This helped.

Come on Lockwise. Don't throw in new features that interfere with user interaction without putting it in the configuration. How is anybody supposed to know what to look for in about:config, that's if people even know they could go and look there.

Release notes? Who reads release notes for software that is auto updated? And which set of release notes would it be in anyway?
