Cannot create a new account/profile
« on: June 22, 2011, 06:31:59 AM »
I get one of two errors when trying to create a new account in passwordmaker. I am using Aurora.

1. If I have not entered a master password it will not save the account settings because I have not entered a master password.
2. If I do enter a master password it will not let me save the account because it thinks I have not selected a character set to use.

I didn't see this in the list of known bugs.

What is Aurora? Is it a Firefox beta version?

It is their quick release channel but I have the same issue with Firefox 5 as well. The addons page lists passwordmaker as compatible with both versions.

Is there a way for me to reset the passwordmaker config file back to default? Because this was working fine earlier.

In your profile directory, there's a file called passwordmaker.rdf. Rename it while not running Firefox, and it should be reset.

Also, I noticed on my end that the context menus don't have a background...

Thanks. Now my default account/profile works. I created two more but they do not let me specify which part of the URL to use. In fact they default to "jumpstart". See the attached screenshot.

Any ideas?

The new accounts don't use the parts of the current urls. Not sure what page you're looking at to have jumpstart being the default though.
