I need help separating website passwords.

Posted

Please see the screenshot attached. Before the latest update, I was able to have a separate list of passwords for each site. Now I'm seeing "From this website" and then the other website. I only want to see the passwords associated with each site, not cross referenced. Is there any tool or setting to separate them?

Could you experiment with the following setting and see whether it is the reason for the change:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste signon and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup preference to switch the value from true to false

Was that it?

It's because they are both for the same domain name. The difference is that one is for a specific subdomain and the other is for the main domain.

You can easily exclude subdomains from the drop-down list by setting the signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup to false using the Configuration Editor for Firefox (about:config page).

Hope this helps.

NOTE: You may need to restart Firefox for the changes to take effect.

Oooh this is good to find. I have quite a number of subdomains under one domain and it has gotten nuts after that update.

It would be really great if this could apply to only certain subdomains. E.g. list of domains to show logins for subdomains. If that's done, it should be able to be chosen whether that list applies to showing or hiding. That is, choose whether it's a whitelist or blacklist domains to show logins for other subdomains within it.

Note that you have a link to open the Password Manager at the bottom of the drop-down list to inspect all your passwords.

Thank you for the link, this is good info. I will use it instead of the direct feedback feature, which is blocked for some reason on my overly restrictive network.

Cheers!
