Keychain Services Integration

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Thanks Julian.

Allowing Firefox's PM access to the all of the keychain can be considered a security weakness.

Like in Camino (or Entourage), I was hoping / wishing, that Firefox would only be allowed to look up ONLY the password required, but not bring ALL keychain passwords to their password manager. This would be better and a closer integration with OS X.

Dont know if Firefox's PM allows dynamic lookup hooks like this.
Pls look into this when possible.

Padu

------------------------------------
Hi, you posted a review of the Keychain Services Integration
extension. The Mozilla Add-ons site seems to be broken such that I
can't reply to your review there.

The integration *is* dynamic. You may have been confused because
Firefox uses the new password database for *all* actions including
listing the passwords in the "Show all passwords" section of the
preferences dialog. With this extension loaded, those are the
passwords from the keychain, not from your Firefox database. Firefox
has an abstraction that allows you to implement different storage
backends for passwords and the extension simply provides an
implementation that stores and retrieves to/from the Keychain. I'd
love it if Firefox allowed you to select multiple backends
simultaneously so you could see what was in both, but unfortunately it
only allows one to be used at a time.

I wonder if you could remove or update your comments... they are
confusing for people browsing the site who may think that the
integration is not dynamic.

Thanks,

Julian

this just copies all the key chain passwords to firefox pm.
seems less secure and not optimal.
is an integration - dynamic lookup and update not possible?
