Firefox plugin on Linux doesn't save generated passwords

Recommended Posts

I'm testing enpass as a possible replacement for lastpass, and when I use the browser plugin to generate a password, it doesn't ave it to the store.

If I log out of the new site and log back in (I have to find the password from the clipboard, which was a problem the first time I noticed, as it had been removed) then it offers to save the password, but in the two cases I've tried (one being this forum), it doesn't then know what the username is  (as that was remembered).

Is this a setup problem or something that doesn't work?

As a side note, lastpass remembers the generated passwords anyway for each site, even if it doesn't know whether you used it. That would be a useful feature.

It does save a history of generated passwords (even if it doesn't know whether you use it), but it doesn't save the specific site. https://www.enpass.io/docs/desktop-linux/passgen.html#password-history

I can't see a history on any of my passwords. How do you access that?

What about generated passwords where you've never saved a site or generated in the app and not the plugin?

 

Thanks

Just go to the password generator and click on the little clock icon in the lower right.
