RoboForm Password Manager for Firefox

Use this neat extension in order to automatically gain access to your numerous online services, without having to input all those complicated credentials

If you're part of the "I can never remember my passwords" group, then you'd better read the following article. It's for your own good. RoboForm Password Manager is the extension you should be seeking when browsing the internet with Firefox. It will help you remember all your account passwords, or actually, it will remember them for you, provided you don't forget the only important, the password to RoboForm.

Yes, it's a sort of a password manager, but better

What RoboForm aims to change is you having to remember all those passwords. It asks you to teach it where all the passwords go in order for it to help you fill them in next time you want to access one of your favorite services.

This works to your advantage, as you'll only have one password to remember and that is your RoboForm access key. You'll definitely notice an increase in your productivity. No more lost time trying to remember or find clues to unlock access to your online apps. Use RoboForm.

A plethora of features, less worries for you

This particular extension has quite a number of features. Apart from allowing you to log in to accounts with one click, you can automatically save passwords when you log in to other services online. The "Matching Logins" feature is another interesting aspect of this addon. It can help grant access to services that use a multi-step login system. Filling website forms are also covered by RoboForm. Changing your PC or simply temporarily logged in on a different PC? Fear not, RoboForm can easily be transferred from one PC to another. All data is saved in your account.

Thus, RoboForm Password Manager is an extension that everyone should try. It will help ease the pain of trying to remember login credentials. It's worth mentioning that this extension is but a fraction of the potential of the brand. RoboForm works best if installed as a full-fledged application on your PC. The application version is filled with even more options and choices.

Say Goodbye to the Roboform Toolbar in Firefox. Here's why

Infopackets Reader Dan L. writes:

" Dear Dennis,

I imagine that you might soon be hearing from your users about Roboform having suddenly lost its toolbar feature in FireFox.

If not, here's the answer: starting with the recently issued Roboform 8.3.7, the RoboForm extension will no longer include a full static toolbar above the content pane of Firefox. Instead, you get a button with a message that reads ("Click this button to show RoboForm commands") with a vertical menu, similar to how Roboform works in Chrome.

I found an article at RoboForm that explains the changes - and it seems that Mozilla has decided to fully embrace the use of WebExtensions starting with Firefox version 57 due out in the fall. With this release, the use of full static toolbars will no longer be allowed, though technically Mozilla has been implementing this plan since Firefox 53. Frankly, I think this is horrible in terms of usability.

The only solution at the moment (should you wish to continue using the toolbar) appears to be to roll back to the previous version of Roboform 8.3.5. But that, of course, only delays the inevitable. Anyway, I thought you might want to hang on to this information since the question may come rolling in soon. Keep up your good work! "

My response:

Thanks for the info. I had been putting off the update for the last week or so because I've been so busy with remote desktop support, and didn't want any surprises - then you sent me this email. I've just installed the latest version of Roboform today ( to see what it was like, and you are right - the menu, and even the icons, have changed dramatically.

A few months back I was about to ditch Firefox completely, because it was eating ridiculous amounts of RAM - even today it will eat 2.7 GB of RAM on my machine, which then causes Firefox to slow down quite a bit - and so I started looking at Chrome as a replacement. That said, I noticed the Roboform layout in Chrome was completely different than what it looked like in Firefox - similar to how you are describing now.

Eventually I decided to stick with Firefox because I still use a few extensions that simply aren't available in Chrome. At this time I decided to completely remove and reinstall Firefox - and in the process, got rid of a few Firefox extensions (hoping this was going to resolve the Firefox RAM issue I was having).

By removing the extensions, it changed my layout of Firefox completely. There didn't seem to be any place to fit Roboform on my toolbar any longer - so I decided to try using Roboform with only the Roboform icon present, rather than the full toolbar you are describing. I can tell you now, I actually prefer to use it this way because it's very tidy.

As you mentioned, Firefox 57 is due out later this year, and that is going to have an impact on a lot of add-ons and extensions. Be prepared that many of your extensions may no longer work when this update comes out. Most importantly, however, is that older versions of Roboform are no longer going to work - so you might as well get used to it now.

I've placed my Roboform icon between the address bar and the search bar, as this makes the most sense to me. Give it a try! It's not that bad.

Thanks for the tip! If anyone else has an opinion, feel free to leave your two cents in the comments below.

Are you Still Using Roboform 7? Time to Upgrade!

Firefox 57 will be due out in a few months and if you haven't already upgraded to Roboform 8, now is the time to do it. Even if you don't use Firefox, Roboform is continually under development and will always need updating, and holding onto older versions simply isn't viable for the same reasons mentioned in this article. If you need help with the transition to Roboform 8, I can help. I can also help setup a 'centralized Roboform database' so that you can use Roboform 8 on multiple computers in the home (or office) so that they all share the same Roboform data. If anyone reading this article needs help upgrading to Roboform 8: simply contact me briefly describing the issue and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

RoboForm Installer Installs Adapter Automatically into Firefox

RoboForm installer automatically installs Adapter into Firefox 3.0 to 4.0.
If you check "Install Adapter that allows RoboForm to work in Firefox" box in RF installer.

Turn off native browser password managers as they interfere with RoboForm: In Tools > Options > Security > Passwords uncheck Remember Passwords.

RoboForm2Go + Adapter

RoboForm2Go can attach to Firefox browser even if Adapter has not been previously installed into the browser. We recommend to uninstall XPI-based Adapters from all your new Mozilla-based browsers and use only installation from the RoboForm installer.

We added Adapter tab to RoboForm -> Options dialog. This tab shows all installed Firefox adapters. It allows to install and uninstall Firefox adapters. It also controls whether RoboForm can attach to Firefox if Adapter is not installed.

Portable Firefox + RoboForm2Go

Portable Firefox can be used from any portable drive without installing it on a computer.

Introducing the Updated RoboForm Browser Extension

We’re excited to announce the updated RoboForm browser extension for Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari. This new extension streamlines your RoboForm experience and makes it easier than ever to securely manage your passwords and the other important data you store in RoboForm.

This article discusses some of the most visible improvements.

A consistent extension experience across all platforms.

The standalone extension design is now identical to the version that is tied to the desktop installed version. This allows Linux and Chrome OS users to have the same experience as Windows/Mac.

Greater ease of navigation.

Navigating the updated extension should be intuitive for anyone.

  • The interface is now laid out in a tab format, with three top-level tabs.
    The Fill Logins and Identity tabs are fixed, but the first tab is customizable. To change the item type displayed on the first tab, simply click the down arrow on that tab, and select a different option.
RoboForm Browser Extension Tabs
  • Larger icons.
    We’ve increased the size of icons to make them easier to see and select.

The new extension improves efficiency by presenting the most relevant items right away.

Whether you’re logging into a website or filling a form, the new extension features the most relevant items at the top of the list so they’re easy to find.

  • Popular, Recent, and Pinned items are now more prominently displayed, making it easier to access commonly or recently used items.
RoboForm makes it easy to sort logins, safenotes and bookmarks by Popular, Recent, and alphabetically
  • Search is now prominently displayed at the top of the extension.
    This is extremely useful for users with hundreds of items (or more!).
The RoboForm Search bar is easy to access at the top of the browser extension.
  • Matching Logins are now shown for specific sign-in pages.
    Prior to this update, you could view all your Logins that matched the domain of the site you wished to log into. Now, you can refine that view to just the Logins that match the current sign-in page. This is extremely useful to users who have many Logins for a site.
RoboForm simplifies logging into sites for which you've saved multiple sets of login credentials
  • Password generation is done automatically when on a password-change or sign-up page.
    It’s now even easier to create a good password when changing passwords or setting up a new Login. Just click the RoboForm Inline icon beside the password field, and the Password Generator launches and automatically creates a strong, unique password.
Easily generate secure passwords from the new RoboForm extension.

Additional functionality

  • Manually add items quicker. 
    Click the new button to quickly add items via the Start Page. This is where you’ll go to manually create a new Login, Safenote, Bookmark, or Identity.
To manually add items to RoboForm from the browser extension, click the plus sign.
  • Ability to view and copy Identity items in the extension.
    It’s easy to copy the entire contents of an Identity item, or just a single field, to your clipboard. Just View the Identity, then click the Copy icon to the right of the item you’d like to copy.
Copy and paste between different identities in RoboForm.

Roboform Toolbar for Firefox

This toolbar brings all the conveniences of RoboForm to your Firefox browser. The AI Roboform Toolbar for Firefox is merely a companion to the paid program RoboForm, and you'll need to download the latter program before you can use the toolbar.

The toolbar itself features buttons for log-ins, setting up form fills, saving log-in info, and generating passwords, if needed. The options menu comes jam-packed with settings for creating shortcuts to access the program, customizing the toolbar display, and managing the auto-save and auto-login features. When we visited Web sites that required a log-in, a prompt asked us if we wanted to save the info. Each time we revisited the site, the toolbar recognized the site, and, with a click of our mouse, our log-in info was automatically entered. The password generator let us specify the number of characters, and copy it to a clipboard or fill the password field.

Despite hitting a few bumps when we first installed the toolbar, we were impressed by its flawless performance. If you user RoboForm, you should definitely give this toolbar a try.
