ProfilePassword-Firefox 0.2.2 extension bug

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Scott Steiner, Nov 14, 2005.

  1. Hi,

    I installed the ProfilePassword extension found at:
    http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/index.php?showtopic=2179&hl=profilepassword

    All seemed well but then I discoverd a funny bug though. When I press
    "cancel" at the password prompt and then launch firefox again, then I
    don't get the password prompt anymore and firefox just opens instead at
    the chosen profile i.e. simply as if no password request was present.

    Obviously this behaviour isn't favourable as the whole point of the
    extension is to bring up a password prompt. Anyone else have this
    problem? Any solutions? Does anyone know of any other password
    extensions to protect profiles?

    OS=WinMe
    Firfox 1.0.7

    Thanks!

    I could be wrong on this, but after looking at the home page, it might
    be for linux use only. Why don't you reply to the posting there?
