Password Field extension

Q: Password Field extension

Hi everyone!

Today I want to share this new, and really simple, extension, Password Field.

This extension simply allows you to show and hide passwords fields in the webpages, and it is avalaible for Mozilla Firefox and Firefox-based browsers, but there are also other extensions like that avalaible for Chrome and Chrome-based browsers, for example: ShowPassword

Thank you all for reading ​

Preferred Solution: Password Field extension

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Password Field extension

This is an excellent utility add-on! It is not always necessary for passwords to be invisible while they are being entered.

I would like to contribute to this thread, if I might, with the following related add-on: Password Exporter
Password Exporter is a nifty add-on which allows you to export the passwords and usernames which are saved in your Firefox browser, to .xml or .csv files. (NOTE: The add-on also allows you to obfuscate those files for extra security in storing your passwords)
You can keep the exported files as a backup and you can restore them at any time in any Firefox browser that has this same add-on installed.

Thanks for sharing this add-on, @Jo Man!

a few months ago I switched from Win Vista ultimate to win7 professional 32bit.
My computer was connected to a home network with a server and data server, that server also patched me trough to internet.

since my computer support installed win7 on my computer , they brought it back to me, with a blanc password and my login name (lets call that sangetsu). i just had to click my icon on login and i was logged in and also had straight internet connection trough an ''unknown'' network. fine by me, just needed internet and office anyhow.

Recently my computer had an update and i lost all means to connect to the www.
so i decided to make a new username on my server, with admin rights and plugged my comuter back in our local network. on that new user i had internet connection again but no access to the files that my local admin had.

the problem now is this: whenever I try to log back on my local admin ' sangetsu ', which didn't require a password , i get an error that says : wrong password , even when the field is blanc. even when my new user i made in ADUC has all the admin rights possible, it won't let me share my previous folders and desktop, also doesn't allow installation of new software etc etc... I've looked on the net for a solution and my PC support that installed my win7 OS can't help me. what should i do?

I await a quick reply
thanks in advance.

This seems like something I should know, but have forgotten. On some websites, depending on the browser that you use, you will see what I can describe as similar to a small microphone in the password field. I have seem it on Yahoo and Google. Is that a voice recognition symbol or something else? Some browsers have it and some don't. I recently used Microsoft Edge to log into Flickr Photos and saw the symbol. What is this thing?

Posting this for a coworker. Serviced a Windows 7 laptop during which we had to install a new image, and then reapplied the HP Drive Encryption to encrypt the drive. However, now on boot up, where there used to be fields to enter a password/encryption key, there aren't any fields. This happens prior to Windows booting up. Google searches haven't yielded any results, all seem nonspecific.
Has anyone encountered this before?

Hi there,

This happens on all machines with our "last" Windows 7 Master. The Master has change of course, but a little ; update kb updates adding applications.

> The problem do not appear on an alternative browser (Firefox / Chrome)

I'm having an issue that's preventing me from logging into my Lenovo Thinkpad T410 with Windows 10. Previously you could swipe your finger on the fingerprint scanner to both turn the computer on, and login. Since the Windows 10 upgrade, that was no longer supported, so the power button would be pressed, which would take you to the Windows login screen, at which point a finger swipe would handle the Windows login, and bring you to the desktop.

Yesterday, when trying to start up, at the Login screen, the fingerprint scan did nothing. On the rare occasion over the years when there'd be an issue with the fingreprint scanner, pressing a key would bring up the ability to enter the Windows password. However, when I tried to do so yesterday, it would just slightly magnify the background picture, now revealing the Internet, Accessability and Power buttons in the lower right, but nothing else. There were no Users listed in the middle, and no place to enter a password.

I've searched for hours for solutions, and have not come across many similar situations, which is unusual. I saw suggestions to hold Shift, then Restart in order to bring up the ability to boot in Safe Mode, but that doesn't work (even holding Shift throughout), it only brings you back to the login screen. Other suggestions all revolve around changing settings once into Windows, but I'm never able to get to the desktop.

I did make a recovery CD on another Thinkpad, which does g... Read more

I just bought a new Windows 8 Dell Vostro 5470 laptop. I signed in with my Live account, which I use on my main computer everyday.
I upgraded into Windows 8.1, and set up fingerprint authentication as well. I didn't have a problem signing in with it, nor with my 12-character password (which I used today on my PC to log in).
Last night I locked the laptop (from the ctrl+alt+del screen) and left it. By the time I got back, it went into hibernation or something. Meaning to say, it looked turned off. I didn't touch it until today.
When I turn it back on today, I couldn't sign in. Neither the fingerprint wasn't working, nor my password - but then on a closer look, I saw that I couldn't enter more than 9 characters in the password field! Restart didn't work. Reminder - my password is 12 characters long and I used it just the day before.
Disclaimer: this is a brand new laptop, nothing is installed on it. The only things I did with it were Windows Update, upgrade to 8.1, set up fingerprint log-in and surf the web a little bit. I don't mind totally resetting everything, I just don't know how to do it.
Your help is appreciated.

A:Can't login into Windows 8.1 - password field limited to 9

Hello Pilau,

As a possible workaround, change your Microsoft account's password online from another PC so that it's only 9 characters long.

Afterwards, restart the laptop that you are unable to sign in to, and see if you may be able to now with the new password. Sometimes it may take a bit to fully sync the change though.

Hello, I have been using BitLocker for a long time now and in conjunction with Windows 10 for 3 months and today something weird happened. When I tried to insert my password at boot, when I pressed the Shift key in combination with any other key, it inserted tens of characters at once. Valid with any character I press while Shift is also pressed. I tried a different keyboard, same result. I removed Bitlocker and reinstalled it, same result. Reboots, etc. I tried it all.

Now the only way to input the password is to press Insert so I can see the characters, press CapsLock for the capital letters and delete all the additional 30+ characters that appear when shift is pressed.
Has anyone come across such a thing? Is there a fix to it?

A:Bitlocker inputs multiple characters in the password field

Same here... it started a few days ago after a win 10 update... i bet MS pushed an updated to bitlocker that causes it... no solution found by me so far except the one you have with the insert key... (and to get things more interesting i have connected my HDMI to my TV and the DP cable to the monitor and the Nvidia bios selects the hdmi output on boot so i have to switch the tv on to see the error and remove the extra characters) i have tried with 2 different keyboards and the issue is still there. if you find a solution please share it

Hi, have had this problem for a while now and any help would be greatly appreciated. Essentially I cannot install anything, as it requires User Account Control verification, but the password field for the admin pass does not show up, so the only option each time is to click 'No' and cancel the installation. I assume this is because there is no admin password set.

I tried for a long while previously, I have tried to enter using safe mode and try and disable UAC, yet when doing so the UAC actually pops up in sade mode without the pass field again. I have also tried using Offline NT Registor and Password Editor to create a new pass for the admin, yet no luck as the admin afterwards doesn't require a pass nor does the pass field in the UAC show.

I would really like to find a way to solve this, and am willing to do whatever anyone recommends. Thanks

A:Cannot install anything as no password field in User Account Control

Hello Archaic, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If the administrator account doesn't have a password set, then you should be able to just log into the administrator account and create a password for it as usual. Without a password, you would just leave the password field blank and press enter.

Hi everyone,

today I want to share with you this useful extension, which allows you to generate passwords from website's domain and master passphrase.

Original description:

This firefox extension allows you to generate site-specific password from a single master password. This avoids the hassle of remembering a unique password for each website you sign up to.

We all have dozens (or even hundreds) of website accounts we have to remember. We are then tempted to reuse the same password for several websites. If one of them is hacked or malevolent, you risk exposing your other accounts.

It mixes together your personal master password and the website domain using a little cryptographic magic we call SHA-1. It will always get the same result if given that domain name and master password, but will never get that result if either changes. (Well, once in a few billion times it might.)Click to expand...

This extension is avalaible for Mozilla Firefox and Firefox-based browsers.

Welcome to the forum, before answering you question can I suggest some improvements to your database.
Currently you do not have any "Key", "Indexed" fields in your tables and there are no relationships set up between the tables.
Also do you really need the Archive Table?
The data looks like it has been exported in from a spreadsheet, relational databases work quite differently to spreadsheets, so to make the most of their advantages you need to correctly relate your Tables.
Your UserID Roster also has some disconnect between the Field Names and the actual data in them, particularly the Name and Type feilds.
In the Supervisor Table the Birthdate does not seem to have Translated correctly.

I support a software program that has a proprietary menu item when you right-click a calculated field. It has been this way for 10-15years and has worked in WinXP through Win10 with never an issue. This past week I had 3 different customers tell me that when they right-click one of these fields to access what is normally the Cut/Copy/Paste/ menu that also includes our menu item, they are now getting the Windows default cut/copy/paste/Right to Left Reading order/Show Unicode control characters/ etc menu. The only thing I can think of that they all have in common besides these are all Window 10 64bit pc's, is that they all have one update to Adobe Acrobat (17.012.20098).
I was able to resolve for a moment on two of these workstations by having the user go into Language/Advanced settings and actually selected "English (Unites States) from the "Override for Windows display language" even though that settings is implied by the "recommended". But after the pc was turned off over night and back to it the next day, the problem is back and that setting is still selected. All language and regional settings on all the pc's are defaulted to English/Unites States. I do not know what other avenue to go in. Could something hae been switched on or off in Windows (by this Adobe update perhaps?) that would make the context text menu switch to Windows text default right-click menu?

Any help is appreciated!

I am working on a database that stores genus, species, and variety I want to sort the data with genus, then species, then variety.

Now the tricky part. Sometimes there is no species. When this is the case, I want the database to sort that record off of variety.

I have though of a way to do this, but need help with the code.

If I make a species2 field, I could create an expression that would look at the species field. If the species field is empty, it could copy the data from variety. If it is not empty, then copy the data in the species field.

Once the species2 field has the updated data, I could then do a sort

genus, species2, variety

The report would have genus, species and variety showing and species2 would be checked off to not show in the report.

I am using Microsoft Access 2000.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

A:Access - if field is blank, copy field A, if not copy field B

You should not actually need another field to do this, just another column in your report's Query. Something like this as a Field header :-

dummySpecies: iif(isnull([species]), [genus], [species])

this should provide a column with the species in if it there and the genus if it is not, which you can use in place of your actual species field in the report for sorting.

I know the Include Field will include part of the text from an Include File if it is in a bookmark. The format is {IncludeText "File Path" Bookmark}. I have 2 files: Source and Target.

Source is a form template. I included a Text Form Field and gave it the bookmark AA. I also included other text in a "normal" bookmark, BB.

In Target I have 2 fields: {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" AA} and {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" BB}. The text from BB shows up, but the one for AA is blank.

If I go into Source and look under Bookmarks, both AA and BB are there.

BTW, I have tried it with the Source form both "Protected" and "Unprotected" and it didn't make any difference.

Any idea why this is happening, and more importantly, any idea on how to make this work? If not, it seems like a real bug in Word 2003 as they are both definitely considered to be bookmarks.

In the above example, the photo filenames are all matched up to the fields referenced in the formula (last_first.gif). These are the correct field codes, and the double slashes are important, I have been told.

My problem is that as soon as I save the document containing the above field, the underscores all change to "%20" and the field doesn't work!! No one at my software vendor's help desk can help me with this problem. Does anyone know anything about preventing this??

I have created a database to track applicants’ eligibility process. Mainly, a Head of Household will call or apply in person for a medical assistance for self or for child #1, child #2 etc. I created two tables tblHeadHouseHold and tblApplicants with a (one-to-many relationships) and, a main form (frmHeadHouseHold) and a subfrom (sfrmApplicants). So far, the database works fine and just recently, I was approached to add a new field ‘Source of Application’ where applicants learn about our program and the options are (Friend, School, Doctor, Advertisement, other) and to produce a ‘Source of Application Report’, how many from Friend, how many from School, how many from Advertisement etc. I’m using access 2003 and would like to know:

Given the type of report I need to generate for ‘Source of Application’
shall I use check box, drop downs, or a lookup table?
Thank you in advance,
