Bookmarks, use of CAPS for passwords in properties

Kuphostiwe

When saving a Bookmark, and security is not an issue, it's useful to have User Name and PW in the properties tab. If the PW has CAPS within it and is saved, when reviewed, the CAPS have been all changed to lower-case. Makes it difficult to remember which character(s) were Capitalized when entering a PW. This is a problem with sites that require mixed characters.

This is a problem with sites that require mixed characters.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

The keyword field only accepts lowercase and isn't really suited for storing a password. Don't know about the tag field. The description field is no longer supported and you would need an extension as a replacement, but that stores this data in its own storage and can easily get broken.

Most sites don't permit all Caps for password. And what sites are you referring to in the bookmark saves?

In what bookmark field are you saving this data?

If you save the password via the properties then you could add a special character (symbol) to indicate that the character is uppercase.

What is against using the Password Manager to store this data?

@WestEnd:

This is most likely a problem with a mixed case password (AbCdEf) that contains lowercase and uppercase characters and gets converted to all lowercase (abcdef).

There aren't ALL caps, just some of them of the characters. as many sites "recommend" a mix of CAPS and

Yes, that's the problem. Why are they being converted to lowercase ?

It's usually being saved in KeyWord: or Tags: Just something I got used to using.

Which Password Manager ?

I understand all the answers to this issue. HOWEVER, why can't that field be reformatted to accept upper-case letters? I would also like to use upper-case letters-- would a reformatting really upset anything??

Do you want to use this field for storing data other than a keyword?

This field is only meant to be used for a keyword to invoke a bookmark and not for storing data. Typing a keyword in uppercase in the location bar shouldn't be a problem.

Understood. I want to store data specific to the bookmarked web address. I am a CPA and for years using the old Description field for data proved very convenient and greatly time-saving to do so, not just for me but I could import/export the bookmarks & their info to share with my staff. I used it for about 100+ sites, until Mozilla removed the Description field last September, and since then I've been searching for a good working substitute. There is an addon available but it's not an acceptable solution. Using the Keyword field would be perfect except that for some inexplicable reason it doesn't allow caps. Can you suggest any alternatives? (Or can't somebody in the Mozilla Universe format the keyword field to allow the use of capital letters??)

There is a description field available in the moz_places table in places.sqlite, but this field isn't exposed, so you would have to use a SQLite utility.


SELECT * FROM 'moz_places' AS p
WHERE NOT LIKE ('',p.description)
ORDER BY p.url
LIMIT 0,30

The field is filled from a description meta tag.

// Possible description tags, listed in order from least favourable to most favourable
const DESCRIPTION_RULES = [
  "twitter:description",
  "description",
  "og:description",
];

I have a similar problem. Under version 56 I used to store information under the bookmark "properties" but after upgrading to version 69 my "properties" have disappeared. Does anyone know where I can find them?

The description field that was exposed in the Bookmarks Manager (Library) in the Details pane at the bottom right has been removed in Firefox 62 and won't be restored in future Firefox releases. If you would want to use other fields like the keyword field then you need to find a way to mark a capital character (e.g. A=aa) in the password because this field only accepts lowercase characters.
