I've tried to search to see if I could find reference to this issue in the formum, but I haven't been successful, so here goes:
I'm having trouble understanding how Open and Fill from the main 1P7 application for Mac works (or doesn't). It certainly is different from 1P6. My default browser if Firefox, and I am running version 60.0.1 with the 1Password extension (188.8.131.52) installed.
If Firefox is closed completely with ⌘q and I click "open and fill" from within a Login record in the 1Password main application, Firefox starts up, opens a window on the desktop and the proper login page opens, but my credentials do not fill the proper boxes for username and password. The page sits there, awaiting a username and password.
If Firefox is running and is open with a window on the desktop, and then I click "open and fill," the proper web page opens as a new tab and the credentials are properly filled and are submitted. (This seems to me like it should always be how it works.)
If 1Password is dismissed with the red dot, this results in all pages closing, but FF remains active, as shown by the dot below its icon in the dock. That is normal FF behavior. If I then click "open and fill" in the main 1P7 application, nothing happens. No window opens.
If I minimize FF (yellow dot) to the dock, and then click "open and fill," noting happens, until I reopen the minimized FF. Then, and only then, does the proper web page open, the credentials are correctly filled, and are submitted.
This is maidenly inconsistent and completely different from what I've been used to in 1Password version 6.x. Is this really how this is supposed to work now? If it isn't, what am I doing wrong?
(None of this has been dependent on specific web sites. It's how it works everywhere I've tested.)
