QuickPasswords :: Getting Started

To download the latest released version of QuickPasswords, head on over to Download latest Releases of QuickPasswords

To get started, simply install the version above. After restart you will have a new context menu entry "Retrieve a Password" in all edit boxes:
QuickPasswords Context Menu
This will be displayed as soon as you right-click in any textbox.

Clicking the button will open the built-in (Firefox / Thunderbird / SeaMonkey) Password Manager window. QuickPasswords will also try to fill the password filter dialog with a suitable text so that only relevant entries should be displayed.

The Password Manager

When invoking it from a web page, then the easiest way to use QuickPasswords is to double-click on the highlighted item - this will attempt to log you in by matching the stored information from Firefox's built in login manager. Should this fail to find a suitable form field then appropriate context menu items will be created

Any password can also be copied by pressing the [Copy Password!] button. Obviously this will only be useful if you have already stored passwords in the password manager. You can check that the option Tools / Options / Security > Remember Passwords for Sites is enabled.

I don't know how to store passwords! (skip this, I already know!)


How do I make Firefox remember my usernames and passwords?

QuickPasswords will only be able to find passwords that are previously stored, which can be easily done with the built in functionality - if you are not sure, please have a look at the following article first:
Firefox Support: How do I make Firefox remember my usernames and passwords?

There also is more detailed info on various related settings here: Options window - Security panel.

But Firefox doesn't prompt me for storing passwords!

First check that the option Tools / Options / Security > Remember Passwords for Sites is enabled.

Not prompting for password storage can also be caused by a site that has a non-standard way of asking for passwords. For instance the site might use Flash or some clever Javascript preventing you from using the built in Password Manager. In that case, I highly recommend using the Saved Password Editor extension, which gives you full control on creating passwords and all aspects of how they are inserted into a page. It is an ideal companion to QuickPasswords.
