    Hello all,

    I have been trying to integrate KeePass into Pale Moon using PassIFox but I have not been able to figure it out. No matter what I have done, I have not been able to get KeePass to recognize the plug-in. It is probably something stupid that I am doing but can anyone with the knowledge of how to do it properly and successfully please walk me through setting it up. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Hello again,

    I finally have the KeePass plug-in, the PassIFox extension, and KeePass itself all installed properly. It seems the link that I was downloading the KeePass HTTP plugin from was giving me a corrupt file. I change links and now that worked.

    What I can not figure out now is how to automatically save the logins. I have tried it with the Pale Moon password manager both enabled and disabled, but no luck either way. With it enabled I do get a prompt to save, but the login is not stored anywhere, not in Pale Moon or KeePass. With it disabled I get no prompts at all.

    Now unless I am totally missing something, I should get a prompt to save, click it, and it goes to KeePass, but nothing happens. I am sure I am to the stage now where I just have some setting somewhere not right, as I am pretty sure that I have all of the three components required installed correctly.

    Any ideas or advice from anyone out there?

    Hello,

    I found out I had to have the Pale Moon settings set to save and prompt for logins, but it still would not work. From that point, without changing anything, I just keep plugging and trying for another 20 minutes. Then all of a sudden I get a prompt where I have to approve the connection between Pale Moon and KeePass using a key/hash. That is what was needed to finally get it working.

    One thing I do know, the instructions I had to install this were very vague and once I figured that out and had everything installed correctly, the rest of the process seemed a bit buggy to get to the point of Pale Moon and KeePass making a connection between the two. Even with all this trouble and two hours of my time, I am liking this setup so far.

    Mods - Since this has been a thread of me talking to myself solving my own problem, please feel free to close this thread if you deem it necessary....

    Yeah, I use the Chrome equivalent of this and it wasn't straightforward.

    Another tip: you may have to change the main URL that you record within KeePass in order for it to be recognized and get the forms filled. If you get redirected to a different domain to log in, record that URL instead of the main page.

    For example, for Newegg I have to change it to the address of the secure server. If I open that SSL link in KeePass, I get redirected to the standard (not SSL) site. Then when I click on the link to log in, it goes to the secure server (which ChromeIPass recognizes) and the forms will get filled. If I had entered the standard site in KeePass, the forms wouldn't get filled because ChromeIPass would only send the data if it's the standard domain.
