1 Password X beta for Firefox

Hi there, after some years of using chrome I currently tip my toes into using firefox some more. I use 1password x under Arch linux. I was on the beta train for the chrome extension but I could not find a way to install the firefox beta version. Is there a Firefox beta and if so how do I install it?

Kind regards

    Hey @cbergmann – thanks for being on the beta train with us thus far!

    At the moment, we don't have the option to install the 1Password X beta in Firefox. It's something that's been requested in the past, though, so it's on our radar. We appreciate your interest. :)

  • Hi @kaitlyn, thanks for the reply. Is there an option to get notified when this changes (ticket or thread to subscribe to) or should I look out in the changelog?

    Good question, @cbergmann! I'll go ahead and track that on my side of things so we can make sure we reach out to folks if a Firefox beta does become available in the future. I've added this forum thread to the list so we can comment here and you should get a notification. :)

  • Thanks for that. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks for letting us know. I would too. Hopefully we'll have enough bandwidth for this in the future. :)

  • I guess this answers the question I sent to Support yesterday. I've used 1PW for years and recently switched to an account so I could use it on Linux as well as my Macs. Firefox is my browser, and while the old '1Password extension (Desktop app required)' lets me use TouchID, it doesn't work on the '1Password X extension'. I'll keep using the old extension until there is a version for Firefox with Desktop app integration, or even just TouchID functionality. My master password is very long and it's a pain to keep on having to type it! I'd be happy to try out a beta if and when.....

    Thanks for your input, @chrism229. It's good to know we have a few users who would get on board with a Firefox beta if we do put one out there. :)

  • I would not mind testing it on Firefox also espescially I am looking for the option that is integrated with the local stored database in the app instead of the x vault

    @Biersmurf: as I replied to your in your other discussion you created, 1Password X is only available with 1Password Memberships. Thank you for letting us know that you would be willing to test 1Password X in Firefox though, it's really appreciated!

  • Would really be nice if you'd get this out for those of us who value PRIVACY and would never install Google Chrome on any system we use, or support.

  • Hi @buckZor,

    I know it isn't quite what you've asked for but the 1Password X Chrome extension should work for any Chromium based browser out there, you shouldn't feel limited to only Google Chrome. I'm a fan of Vivaldi, brought to us by many of the same people who were behind the original pioneering Opera. There's also Brave who has Brendan Eich associated with it, co-founder of the Mozilla project and creator of JavaScript according to a quick search. As they're both based on the Chromium browser they'll work with the 1Password X beta extension in the Chrome store.

    Neither is a beta extension for Firefox but if it's specifically Google Chrome you have an aversion to then one of them may be a worth alternative.

  • Hey @littlebobbytables,

    I just wanted to say thanks for the recommendation of Vivaldi. I am giving it a test drive on my Mac and I am absolutely loving it so far. Without your comment, I highly doubt I would have come across it. Thanks again!

  • Greetings @mosi76,

    I'm happy I could help and I do love hearing of Vivaldi converts :lol: I was a big Opera fan back in the early days when they helped set trends and I remember being quite smug when it was found all the browsers that autofilled fields were vulnerable to a particular form of attack - Opera was the exception because any filling was user invoked much like 1Password still is today. So I had to jump on to Vivaldi when I found out it was the same people that shaped my early browser expectations and experiences :smile:

    I believe the current Opera browser has switched hands a couple of times now since those glory days so it isn't the same browser it once was. It still has its fans but I'm rooting for Vivaldi.
