Hi everyone,
Does anybody else use the Avast Passwords extensions on Firefox 57.0.3? I'm having a problem with it. When I open Firefox, the little key icon for the Passwords extension is gold, meaning it is active, {if not, the key is black}, but when I access a site where the login and password are required and supposed to autofill, it stays blank. I have to open the Avast site and click on "activate passwords in Firefox" button for it to work properly.
If I keep Firefox open, the extension works on any site I have it set up on. But, if I close Firefox and reopen, I have to repeat the above steps again. The extension is supposed to automatically activate when opening Firefox. I am wondering if I need to change one of my settings for closing Firefox, such as clearing history, etc.? Any answers, links, ideas, etc. would be appreciated. Thanks

as it seems buggy you should contact avast support. i wont count that much on third party modules as firefox password management is decent - and it gets improved in the near future.

As Brummelchen mentioned, it's best to go ask at the AVAST forum, as it's their "addon/extension."
