Master password is needed for every opened tab

Post by Dreamer » Tue Apr 14, 2009 4:04 pm

When using this way (Gecko/Firefox password manager) to save the passwords, I have a problem.

When the tabs are saved automatically on exit, then, when I start Orca next time, I have to type a master password for every opened tab with saved password.

Therefore it's unusable for me, because I have to type the password for every page. :( Is it a bug, or a Firefox issue / behavior?

Do you mean the input fields don't get filled when pages are reloaded after restarting Orca? I don't have such problem.

Yes and no. It works good, but when I have, for example 5 pages opened, I'm using option to auto-save pages on exit, then exit Orca, start Orca, I have to type the same master password 5 times!

I'm not sure if the Firefox has a feature to auto-save tabs on exit (without extension), so perhaps the problem is that this feature don't know the other tabs will be opened, or that the password has been entered already.

Edit: Oh, I'm using a portable version, perhaps this is the problem.

Edit2: More information. When no pages are opened at start (or just one with the password field and others without), then, when I open another page with password field, it works good.

...So I think it would be working good, if no pages would be opened (or at least loaded) before the master password dialog. So after the start - open the master password dialog, type password, press Enter (or click OK) - and THEN open the saved pages/tabs.

OK, thanks, but I think it might be possible to fixed it also in Orca Browser, by changing the way - order of loading tabs and other features - first ask for a master password, then start loading saved pages/tabs.
