Firefox updated to v.22 today and the Roboform toolbar is nowhere to be seen. It is in add-ons and enabled, but not visible through toolbars or as the icon to customize toolbars. All was well with Firefox 21. There appears to be a compatibility problem between Roboform and Firefox 22. Installed version is Roboform v. 7.8.9.5. Please work with them and issue an update. We're stuck without it!

Meanwhile, do you have any suggestions about how to get this working? Reinstalling RF didn't make any difference.

Please refer to this article which explains how to downgrade to Firefox 21 or read the Install an older version of Firefox on how to downgrade.

Edit: Underpromise and overdeliver? The update is out already according to their FB page:

RoboForm Password Manager
4 minutes ago via mobile
RoboForm version 7.9.0 has been released and works with Firefox 22. Please download the update from our website at http://www.roboform.com/download.

The word on their Facebook page as of an hour ago is that it will be 1-2 weeks before Roboform is updated for Firefox 22. I can't understand why it is expected to take so long.

Thank you, Tobbi. That solved it for now. At least I have Roboform back and will update FF once RF releases a compatibility update.

Roboform's response was : "RoboForm is not currently compatible with the recent full release of Firefox 22, we are working on a compatibility release however we do not have a eta on deployment. If possible please downgrade to Firefox 21 using the Firefox 21 installer from Mozilla's website to continue to use RoboForm in Firefox until our release is made available to address these compatibility issues"

Same issues, RoboForm stopped working completely after upgrading to v. 22, I must manually input all user names & passwords. I am getting so frustrated with Firefox, last update (v.21) had issues with a coupon printer from coupons.com, now my RoboForm quit with the latest update. My fix, downgraded FF to v.21, all good now, security issues be damned. When FF and RoboForm get their act together I will upgrade.

roboform has released version 7.9.0.0 of its toolbar for firefox which should fix the compatibility issue,

Roboform released a new version of their program 7.9.0.0 if that is what you are talking about, however it still does not support FF v.22 acording to their release notes. I wouldn't care to purchase a new program anyway just to use the latest Firefox.

Hi magnumquick, Roboform says on their Facebook page that 7.9.0.0 "works with Firefox 22." Is that not your experience, or have you been getting by with version 6 all this time?

more options

This is my experience, as of yesterday the Roboform website stated in the specs that 7.9.0.0 would not work with FF v.22. This may be fixed at anytime but I will not continue to install/uninstall FF due to conflicts. Software developers continue to pass off issues to the consumer and expect them to find a solution and Mozilla is not alone in this, this is bogus. It's simple, you want me to continue to use your product then continue to make sure it integrates with other programs such as Roboform. I am not a fan of I.E. but at least there were very few issues like this, I continually get some conflict when Mozilla releases an updated version. I will stay with v.21 until I see reports from other users that FF v.22 has no conflicts, good luck.

I was still fighting the FF22 no roboform toolbar. Decided to try FF23b1 and still no luck. Checked out RF 7.9.0.0 and it worked with FF23b1. I haven't had other issues with FF.

It is foolish to expect Roboform to work with Beta versions of Firefox (if it does, consider your self lucky ) - they don't support Beta.

Hell, it seems that Roboform has enough trouble having their stuff ready for the Firefox releases dates. For some reason having 24 weeks notice about a new release date isn't enough notice for them.

more options

I would NEVER knowingly use a Beta version of FF or any other program. The problem arose with the FF release of v.22. As I stated in my follow-up at 3:00p on 6/25, when I contacted RF's tech support I was told that they were aware of the problem and would be posting an update, which they did the next morning. It's worked fine for me and everyone I know.

Tobbi and Phillip both posted helpful and informative solutions.

I don't know why this issue remains open, as the solution - that RF has released v. 7.9.0.0 - is the resolution of the problem.

No compatibility check warning about Roboform 7.7 not being compatible.. no warning.. nada. Hasn't enough been said to even make that happen?

I fail to see why Firefox has to make itself incompatible with an add-on like this. Took a bit of searching to check my guess.

Wonder what happens when Pale Moon (Firefox derivative) updates similarly. Now, how do you turn off auto updates...

I was having the SAME issue.

How DID I fix it?

1) Completely uninstall ROBOFORM and make sure you get rid of the REGISTRY entries as well. Between REVO and CC cleaner, my registry was cleaned AND THEN I reinstalled RF 7.9.0.0 and FINALLY it works with FF 22.0.

YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the info. Reinstalling V21 worked for me and the Roboform toolbar popped back up immediately.

Interestingly, I had already set my Auto Update to "Ask before Updating" but Firefox still updated to V22.

Thanks again

Roboform 7.9 works with FF22, (and Pale Moon 20) thankfullly.

Phil01- which version of Roboform are you using?

more options

Hi dalchina, the Firefox compatibility check is limited: it's useful as far as it goes.

It definitely checks whether the extension is marked as only working with a particular range of Firefox versions, and will try to find updates for those on the Mozilla Add-ons site.

However, the compatibility checker generally cannot detect that an add-on doesn't work correctly in the new version of Firefox, and it has very limited access to information on programs that are not distributed through the Mozilla Add-ons site.
