Website Password Troubleshooting in Firefox

Firefox remember password

Firefox should remember passwords by default.  If you have turned off or disabled this feature though, it might not.  Every so often, I need to use the Firefox password manager to remember a password, and it seems that for the life of me I can not get it to do it.  What might be the problem? Check your exceptions!

Reopen Tabs from Last Time

Tab Control in Firefox

Now, most of the time, when I see Firefox asking if I want to save my tabs for the next time Firefox starts, I quickly click through whatever I have to do to turn this extra warning off. However, I was thinking the other day, I wonder how I could toggle this interesting Firefox feature on or off again?

LastPass is Better Password Sync and Support

LastPass is Remembering Your Passwords for You!

Do you use multiple computers and want to sync your saved passwords between them all? LastPass is an extension for Firefox that will allow you to do that easily within the browser.  LastPass hides all your individual passwords behind one master password.  When you type in that master password, then LastPass automatically logs you in to any web site you have set it up to remember.

Tweak Your Autocomplete in Firefox

Ever found yourself thinking that the autocomplete feature of Firefox could use some tweaking? If your wanting to dive deeper into the advanced settings of how it works I might have an extension for you to drop into your own Firefox install.

Autocomplete Manager Options

Autocomplete Manager offers the options you never thought you would ever need to have with the autocomplete feature of Firefox. After installing here are a few of the new perks you will get:

  • matching against bookmark addresses
  • matching against page titles and bookmark names
  • matching anywhere in the address, not just the beginning
  • completing the best match inline
  • temporarily or permanently disabling the suggestion popup
  • excluding local pages and pages containing search results

Want to grab a few more details? Go check out this thread about it over at the Mozillazine.org site for more information.

Now the good? This extension gives you tons of new ways to tweak your autocompleting ways. The bad side of things though, and it has to be said these days – some have said this is a big resource hog. So you might weigh the bad with the good and make the best selection for you.

Add Remember the Milk to Sidebar

Remember the old trick to open Google Notebook in the Firefox sidebar? Well the same thing works with the helpful Remember the Milk to do list web site. All you need to do is bookmark this link here:

+ Bookmark This Link or Drag it to the Bookmarks Tool Bar!

Remember the Milk in Firefox’s SidebarThen once it is bookmarked…

Right-click on that bookmark and select “Properties”.

Check the box that says, “Load this bookmark in sidebar” and you are good to go! Go to say I really like this Web 2.0 web site – and this makes it even handier to use. (via AmanGos)

Autofill Forms

Autofill FormsAre you growing tired of having to fill out the same information over and over again? If so then the Autofill Forms extension for Firefox might be a tool you want to take advantage of.

Autofill Forms enables you to fill out web forms with one click or a keyboard shortcut. A set of customizable rules is used to determine the input for each form element. You are able to edit, remove, enable/disable the provided rules and to add your own ones. You can configure the order in which the rules are to be applied and define site specific rules.

I wouldn’t be relying on this extension to remember every single thing – but it does come in handy for the tedious stuff.

Paste in Your E-mail

If there is one thing that we type in more than our names and passwords, it is our E-mail address. The thing we need is a tool that would just remember out E-mail address and paste it in where we wanted it and when we wanted it. Oh, you mean there is such a thing? The Paste E-mail Firefox extension does just that.
