Firefox's Password Manager Gets Smarter

by Karthik on September 2, 2007 · 3 comments

Firefox as you all know has a built in password manager. At times using the Password manager can be a nightmare. Say if you mistype your Username or Password and Firefox saves the Username and Password. Now you enter the correct details and it still saves it. Next time you try to logon it gives you an option to choose from both the correct and the incorrect details. This can be quite irritating and you have to delete the incorrect credentials before it stops that drop down menu from appearing.

But don’t worry, it won’t be like that anymore because starting from Firefox 3 the Password manager becomes more smarter than it was before. It asks if you want to save the password after you have logged in. This is quite handy feature that will make it Firefox 3. Here is how the new Password Manager will look like :

Firefox 3 Password Manager

This will make it to today’s Nightly Build. If you can’t wait to test it then go and download the nightly build today. The New password manager is not smart enough to detect if the logon was successful but it will certainly help to less cluttered and inefficient credential lists.

Good job Mozilla Team. Keep up the Good work.
