Support Firefox authentification dialog
« on: February 15, 2007, 04:33:38 PM »
Hi! First of all: Great tool   !

One feature you might want to add to the Firefox plugin is to allow field population for the authentification dialog, too.

Problem description:

Some logins don't work via http forms, but via http-auth. The effect is, that Firefox (or any other Browser I know) will pop up a modal dialog requesting a username and password.
Since this dialog is modal, you can't open the PasswordMaker while it is open.
So what usually happens is this:
1. Browse to a page using http-auth.
2. Cancel the modal dialog.
3. Open PasswordMaker, select the correct account and copy it to the clipboard.
4. Reload the page (will re-open the dialog).
5. Paste the password and enter the username.
6. Accept the dialog.

What I'd like to be able to do:

1. Browse to a page using http-auth.
2. Have PasswordMaker supply username and password (either automatically or via context menu entry)
3. Accept the dialog.

Sorry about that, I did do a search before posting, but I found the original request while browsing shortly after posting this one. Please kindly just ignore it (except for the praise, of cause ;-) ).
