The most recent update of Firefox removed and/or disabled my Password Box, with which I store all my passwords. Presently with a choice between dumping Password Box or my beloved Firefox, I would dump Firefox because ALL my passwords are there. This is the worst reason to migrate to Google Chrome, which I hate and avoid almost as much as MS IE, using them only when absolutely necessary. Is Firefox trying to make it unpalatable?

Hi Charles, PasswordBox unfortunately was not updated to work with Firefox 40 (its last update was in May). The extension used the old "widget" module to add its button to the tool bar and that module no longer exists in Firefox.

According to a user in another thread, McAfee said they are aware and working on an update, but no time frame was given.

If your online life cannot proceed without PasswordBox, you might need to do one of the following for the time being:

(1) Use a different browser for sites where you need PasswordBox to log you in;

(2) Switch from using regular Firefox to using the Extended Support Release version of Firefox, which is designed for corporations but runs on all versions of Windows 8.1 (about ESR: http://www.mozilla.org/firefox/organizations/); or

(3) Downgrade to Firefox 39.0.3, bearing in mind the security issues (Install an older version of Firefox).
