Firefox addon for kwallet

   2.4  

KDE Improvement

Firefox addon for kwallet

Description:

Firefox stores its passwords internaly, optionally protected by a master password. KDE has its own password manager called KWallet. KWallet stores every password in the KDE system, and protects access by a master password. With this extension you are able to use KWallet instead of the default Firefox password manager. It allows tighter integration of Firefox inside KDE.

It seems that the crashes experienced by the users are related to the new Javascript JIT Compiler Called ION Baseline. Disabling it seems to solve the problem. You can disable it by setting javascript.options.baselinejit.* in about:config to false




Changelog:

Version 2.4:

* Fixed LDAP password managaement, thanks to Aliaksandr Stelmachonak
* Fixed FF32 crashes due to changes in Add-on Manager, thanks helper987654321 on kde-look.org
* Implemented modify instead of remove/add

Version 2.3:

* Added timestamp support (Fix sync bug?)
* Added entries for timestamp in kwallet
* Added storage version numbering (for upgrades)
* Fixed crash bug, thanks to nemo from Bugzilla@Mozilla

Version 2.2:

* Change in API, added isLoggedIn()

Version 2.1:

* Corrected a memory leak
* Use nsIPrefBranch instead of nsIPrefBranch2
* Correct problem saving UTF8 passwords

Version 2.0:

* New API, based on js-ctypes

 Not quite what I was expecting

 
 by uteck on: Dec 11 2009
 
Score 50%

Very nice, but I still have to login with the username and password in Firefox and then save it in kwallet to make it work. I was hoping that it would read my existing usernames and passwords. I can see that the Firefox saved info is different from the Konqueror so I guess there is no easy way to get FireFox to use the existing Konqueror data. :(

But overall, very nice.

I think it would be possible to migrate user/password info from the native password manager and from konqueror's Form Data to this store, I will take a look at it shortly.
But sharing Form Data with other KDE apps would be a bit more difficult, for example I was not able to store more than one password for the same realm with konqeror, and if you take a look at the Form Data folder of your kwallet, you may guess why.
Another problem is that urls are saved differently in konqueror and firefox, there have to be some kind of conversion.

Ok, This is a Workaround:
You install this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/us-US/firefox/addon/2848 or any other password exporter/importer, then you temporary disable my extension. Export your password and disabled sites info, enable my extension and lastly you import your info back again, this will be imported to kwallet.

Great work, but as my predecessor said, sharing the format with konqueror would be cool (if you want to switch between those two, e.g.).
Anyway, thanks for the extension :)

I installed this addon and restarted firefox. Shortly after the main window is drawn it hangs completely and the cpu-usage shoots up to 100%.

I will try to confirm this with a clean profile soon...

But else, thanks for starting this - I was looking for something like that for a long time!

Same problem here (Arch 32bit, Firefox 3.5.5). The problem seems to occur when the Request permission dialog from KWallet pops up. It can be solved by pressing Allow always. After Firefox restarts, it is running normally.

Oh, so it seems the proposed solution is not working for me anymore (when I pressed Restore session in Firefox, the CPU usage went back up again).

Upgraded to Firefox 3.5.6 and still have the same issue. Moreover I noticed that the Firefox is not reponding at all (cannot click into the Firefox is not your default browser dialog).

I am glad I can report that it is working for me now as well. All it took was to start with clean .kde directory.

Thanks for an awesome extension.

This is a pretty great start to the plugin. One option thing that surprised me initially was the fact that passwords are saved across Firefox profiles. This obviously makes sense in 99.99% of cases since you're the user logged in, have access to your kwallet, so chances are extremely good that this behavior is desirable. Honestly, right now I can't think of a use case where this wouldn't be the case (perhaps a certain Firefox profile is setup to use different usernames/passwords for some reason.)

Anyways, I enjoy the plugin appreciate the work put into it thus far, and look forward to seeing the project mature.

 Inclusion in openSUSE?

 
 by jhart on: Jan 21 2010
 
Score 50%

Nice work, mate. I see you're running openSUSE - have you considered submitting your extension for inclusion into the distro?

The problem I see is that many people, myself included, would *like* to use your plugin but are uncomfortable with the security risk it poses. I just can't rationalise compromising password security by installing an extension to manage passwords from an unknown source.

If it were given the official stamp-of-approval from openSUSE and I could download it, manage it, and update it as part of the distro, rather from an 3rd party, then I could consider it "safe enough" to use.

I think your work would make an excellent addition to the level of Firefox/KDE integration openSUSE is aiming for. Keep it up.

Thank you.
I would like to submit it to opensuse, but I couldn't find out how. Can you point me where to look for that info?

People at mozzilla are already studying it for approval.

I'm not sure there's an official way to submit it. A quick google search for "opensuse firefox/kde integration" shows that openSUSE considered including your extension for 11.2, but it didn't make it in time for the release (see http://en.opensuse.org/KDE/FirefoxIntegration). Personally, I'd try contacting Lubos Lunak (email is available from the link above) and say you're interested in helping get it included for openSUSE 11.3.

Well, you can start adding it to a devel repository (maybe KDE:KDE4:Factory:Desktop, the repository where KDE4 development for the next release takes place), using the Build Service (OBS).
If you want, I can do this. Someone will check the package and then push it to the repo.

Then, the next step is pushing it to the main repository (Factory), I can do this, too. The package will be checked again. This step must be repeated for each new release.

The next and last step would be to have it installed by default, but I don't think this is necessary, and however don't know how to do this. Probably you should talk to some Novell employees, if you really want to do this.

 Not working anymore

 
 by JanMalte on: Apr 21 2010
 
Score 50%

Thanks for this great work. But it stopped working for me. Version 0.6 and FF 3.5.9

I figured out, that this Addon has changed its storage format of the data. insted of saving just the username and the password it now stores also the url and the field names. So all old passwords aren't working anymore. This is very bad, because i have to open kwalltet everytime to search for the password and retype and resave them.

Something went wrong i think. For this reason, this addon is completly disproductiv for me right now.

This version uses 3 different folders to store passwords, because it tries to keep as much compatibility as possible with native apps. Prior to version 0.6, this add-on just uses it's own Folder to store passwords.
The Firefox folder format for version 0.6 is compatible with earlier versions of this add-on. So, you shouldn't need to export/import from older versions.
New passwords are stored either in the "Form Data" or "Passwords" folder depending on the type of password. Passwords from these folders are also read by Dolphin and friends. But both these folders have their limitations. So, when the new password does not fit, it is stored in the Firefox folder.
And last, when Firefox finds a password in the Firefox folder, it tries to move it to the other folders, in order to make them compatible with Dolphin. So, seeing that the Firefox folder decreases it size is a sign that a password have been made compatible (it should be in one of the other folders).
Please check if it is actually bad behavior (like forgetting passwords), because it should be a bug! please, let me know.

Hi,

I'd like to use you plugin, unfortunately, it freeses firefox just after entering the kwallet password.

Please can you have a look at this and fix it before firefox becomes obsolete compared to webkit based upcomming KDE web browsers.

Best regards,

Olivier.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
