Title: Feature Request List for Internet Explorer Edition
Post by: Eric H. Jung on February 02, 2006, 11:23:25 PM
What Is This?
This topic contains a list of all features requested for the Passwordmaker Internet Explorer Edition (https://passwordmaker.org/ie.html). If you'd like to add a feature to this list, please post a new topic in this forum (instead of replying to this topic). We'll discuss the request and, after we understand it, gladly add it to this list. Most anything within reason can be requested.

Voting
Each feature request has a number next to it. This is a count of the number of people who have voted for that request. Everyone can vote for up to 3 requests at a time. After one of your requests is implemented, you can re-assign that vote to another request. You may not vote more than once for the same feature.  Requests with the most votes are likely to be implemented first, although requests which are very easily to implement are often given higher priority than their vote count would suggest.

If you want to know more about a feature, click on a feature to go to the original topic where that feature was requested.  If it wasn't requested in these forums, it is noted and there is no associated link.  If you still don't understand a feature, feel free to ask about it in that topic (or in this topic if the request was by some other means).

You don't have to be registered to vote!
Guests are encouraged to vote, but please don't spam this topic up with votes. :)

The ListCompleted Features
These features are completed and are here primarily as a reference.

It's not being worked on at the moment. It's postponed, but I wouldn't say indefinitely. Can I ask why you are so interested in it?

I've read an article in a dutch PC magazine. They are very enthousiastic about the program.

Furthermore I think this is the only software I know where you can access your programms by solid passwords without any registry in a database.

Only problem I use ie instead of Firefox

Hm... I see the problem! Well, check back periodically to see if the IE version has come along. Can you point me to the dutch PC magazine where PasswordMaker is discussed? I'd like to link to it.

thanks,
eric

It's in the Dutch version of the PCM magazine  from February 2006.

The magazine is not available on internet anymore.

Here's a copy of the article:

Got it. There was nothing there before but a big blank space. I suppose the page hadn't fully loaded. If you're so inclined, we'd love a translation to English! No worries if you don't have the time, though.

Thanks very much,
Eric

Passwordmaker

Passwordmaker is an browser-extension which is available for Internet explorer and Firefox. With passwordmaker you can use passwords easily and safe without the need of remembering them. Passwordmaker doesn’t use, like many other products, an encrypted database, but it generates the passwords on the spot with a combination of a main- password and the URL of the website. Even if someone cracks one of the passwords the rest of the passwords are still safe. Because the main-password can’t be retrieved, which is done by using a form of irreversible encryption. This is the way to use passwords safely and not having to remember a large number of impossible key-combinations. Here’s another tip: Adjust the Internet explorer version to the md5-algorithm in order to generate the same passwords as in the Firefox-version.

I am back again, just to see if we can get IE version up and running again.  Have you looked into the Win7 that is due out this year, maybe early spring or summer.

I have several or many friends that use IE and would like to use PWM, I am not a programmer so cannot HELP with that end, but am very good at doing unexpected thingys to the software that will not work and I can test out those features for you if you like.  HA! HA!

As you well know I like to test out my ideas before notifying you of the NOT WORKing feature I have found.

Thank you for reading my Poster toastie,

Last I heard, Win7 is coming out late 2009 or early 2010. That may have been a result of feeback from the beta testing.

Everything I've read says late 2009, just in time for Christmas... definitely NOT spring or summer though...

And there are way too many Features for the Firefox version I'd rather see get implemented that have Eric waste time on an IE version...

I am not asking for Eric to give up on any enhancements for FF version.  Just would like to get a working version for IE up to the latest version, mine is IE version8.0.6001.18783.  Plus my Vista is now SP2 and my sig is up to date.

How have thingys been going?  Well I hope.

Thank you for reading my poster roastie toasty,

Hi LkOnKbd,

I think the IE version was pretty final. I mean, no one's been working on it, and it was never fully completed anyway.

I have been well. How about you?

Eric

Bummer, very disappointed that it is not going to be redone.  Was really hoping it would.

We are all doing just fine here, thank you for asking.  Well as fine as we possibly can, my system has given me some problems but that is more or mostly my fault, I guess.  I like to install software and test it out, not just any but some of the Add-Ons for FF or extensions and SysInternal Suite, SaferNetWorking different software like RegAlyzer, FileAlyzer, RunAlyzer, NetAlyzer, et ceteras and some other that are fairly safe.

Thank you for this reply Sir Eric, from the extensions on the website for downloads for FF I think you need to stop replying to my messages and get to work.  I do thank you very muchly for that message, except for PasswordMaker not going to be usable on IE,

Why? I much prefer to be as safe as possible when browing... which means, don't use IE. :)

Post by: Miquel 'Fire' Burns on July 13, 2009, 01:20:03 PM
Something is in the pipeline though, so if you're forced to use IE, you can still use PasswordMaker.

Hope to have the first public release in August (with my current free time to work on it, that's the target month)

Post by: LkOnKbd on July 13, 2009, 08:13:47 PM
Gentlemen,

There are some places like Microsoft that demand you use IE to access some of their important places.  They will not accept FF nor any other from what I understand.  I agree, FF is safer and PasswordMaker is the SAFEST.  Plus I have several friends that use IE only, cannot get them to change over, so for me the problem is very small, for another it gets to be rather large.

Not wanting this to take place in the next two days, I know you are very busy with other projects and if at some time you do manage to get one that works with Windows xx.xx.xxxx. SPx would be a very large corner of the market for keeping more of us safe and our passwords generated on the fly instead of trying to store them under just one encryption instead of several, my last count shown there were at least eleven (11) different entries that effect the password created by PWM.

Yes, I know that the Windows Seven (7) is coming out towards the end of this year and that will need to be attended to as well.

Thank you for these contacts and reading my request and giving your opinions which I respect and like,

Post by: tanstaafl on July 15, 2009, 11:33:54 AM
You can still use FFox/PWM to manage your passwords, it just won't auto-populate anything for you, you have to manually copy/paste... not idea, no, but it works.

Thank you for that, have been doing it and it is a pain in the arrsey.

Read miquel's post carefeully! He is releasing PasswordMaker Click! Edition shortly. This works with IE and Firefox and (I think) any other browser you can find, like Opera, Seamonkey, Safari, Kameleon, etc.

Hey LkOnKbd: when you are testing new software (Firefox extensions or other stuff), do you use a Windows virtual machine? You should. Or at least Sandboxie (http://www.sandboxie.com/). A VM and Sandboxie will limit the risk you take by installing software... if the VM or Sandboxie gets infected, you just start over.

Hmmm... never really looked at it... does it use the same RDF file? Does it have all of the same functionality?

I may have time to take a peek this weekend...

I don't think he's packaged it up yet for download, so you'd have to pull it out of Subversion if you want to try it. I don't know if it's using the same RDF file.. miquel?
Title: Re: Feature Request List for Internet Explorer Edition
Post by: Miquel 'Fire' Burns on July 16, 2009, 10:59:50 PM
Not using RDF at all. All settings are stored in a bookmark. It's a bookmarklet, that loads an external script because of the size of PasswordMaker's core functions.

Hi, guys.  Greetings from the Great Country of TEXAS,

Still around, not as much as have been in the past.  That can be taken any way you wish.

Actually not really disappointed, PM, will NOT be on IE, as I just changed over to x64 version of Mozilla FireFox v47.x.x plus not moving on to GWX.  Just not comfortable with w10, will remain on Win7 Pro and HomePremium.
