Browser extension update out for Firefox Aurora, Chrome users

Firefox Aurora iconAre you a Firefox user who lives dangerously in Aurora territory? Is “pre-beta” your middle name? Well, we have a vodka martini browser extension update with your first name on it.

As par for the course, Mozilla has been hard at work on testing new features and next-generation paradigms in Firefox Aurora, the more-beta-than-beta version of its browser, which means we’ve had to update the 1Password extension to stay in step. If you use Aurora, our update is now live that should fix a few incompatibilities and get you back to logging in and filling forms with a click.

Google Chrome users can also look forward to some better Credit Card and Identity filling.

Safari users, well, you can sit this one out because all is well in Cupertino’s corner of the web.

Your browser should see 1Password extension 3.9.17 pretty soon and auto-update to it. While you wait, you could perhaps peruse the changelog and revel in that lifestyle of danger you got goin’ on.

1Password extension update brings gifts, good tidings for Safari, Firefox, and Chrome users

We’ve seen a flurry of browser updates lately, so our developer ninjas sprang into action to respond accordingly. After some quick hacking and slashing of code, we have a couple of useful updates that your browser may have automatically installed for you already, but we figured they’re still worth mentioning here.

1Password extension 3.9.1 brought some key improvements for Safari users, including fixes for those of you who are running it in 32-bit mode. Version 3.9.2, however, brings gifts and good tidings for Firefox users in the form of much better memory management and overall performance. Form filling has been improved across the board, too, so 1Password should now fill sites like iCloud, Fidelity, Twitter, and others.

You can read up on the full details in our extension changelog. To make sure you have the latest version of the extension, click the 1Password button in your browser’s toolbar, then the Settings panel (with a gear icon), and look at the “About” box at the bottom.

The Fellowship of the 1Password Extension completes its mission

Ages ago, in a land far from this one, our merry band of developers and designers, known as The Fellowship of the 1Password Extension, set out to complete two missions: destroy some gold ring with a creepy, invisible inscription, and rebuild our 1Password browser extension from byte-one for Safari, Chrome, and Firefox on OS X and Windows. The journey was long, and much code was lost and reborn along the way. But at long last, we are pleased to announce that our new extension now works for all the major browsers with its arrival on Firefox for Windows.

Oh, and the aforementioned ring is also toast.

With our recent release of 1Password extension version 3.9, we now support Firefox for Windows. That means we now have one powerful, core code base that makes it much easier for us to support Safari, Chrome, and Firefox across both OS X and Windows.

All of the main 1Password extension features are here in Firefox for Windows (save for any browser-specific perks like the 1Password Omnibar trick in Chrome). To get it, all you need to do is open 1Password for Windows, click Preferences in the toolbar, then click the Browsers tab, and click the Firefox option. Our extension download page will open in Firefox, and you can follow the brief instructions there.

This completes an important chapter in our saga, and the Fellowship of the 1Password Extension can finally rest, or perhaps grab a beer with the Elves in Rivendell. But, of course, 1Password’s journey is never truly over—there is still much work to be done, and the Fellowship will stand ready for action.
