Extensions that we propose are very popular and therefore reliable. These extensions allow you to create and use the entries with great simplicity that with functionality integrated by default in KeePass.
In general, these extensions connect to the KeePass program through a plugin available on the official website.
Then, close KeePass and restart Firefox when prompted.
When Firefox restarts, the "Install KeeFox" page will appear automatically.
Click the "Install KeeFox" button.
If you're running Windows Vista, Windows Seven (7) or Windows 8, this window will appear.
This program will install the plugin "KeePassRPC" in the KeePass folder.
If your firewall will display an alert, allow KeePass for allow extensions to connect to the program.
Once installation is complete, KeePass will launch and automatically detect the new plugin. Once KeePass will be launched completely, two windows will open automatically.
As indicated at the beginning of point 10 of this tutorial, the extension tries to connect through a KeePass plugin. To allow this connection, copy the password written in red in the small window with an empty box.
Then, click "OK" and wait for the big window automatically disappears.
Note : If the windows don't appear automatically, close and restart "KeePass".
Since we have already created the passwords database, click "No thanks, I will use an existing KeePass database".
To show you the functioning of KeeFox, we added an entry for the Facebook website.
Because the program isn't locked when we go on Facebook, KeeFox displays the corresponding entry in the toolbar and automatically fills the boxes "Email Address" and "Password".
When you connect to a website, KeeFox will automatically ask to save the user name, password and the website address in a new entry. To do this, just click "Save".
To access the entries in your database, click on "Entries" in the KeeFox toolbar.
Finally, note that you can restrict the visibility of KeeFox. By setting a folder as the starting group for KeeFox, this extension will have access only to entries in this folder and its subfolders.
Once installed the extension, chromeIPass will warn you that KeePassHttp is not installed or is not running KeePass.
Indeed, if you look in the official documentation of chromeIPass, we see that this extension needs :
Note: As stated in point 10 of this tutorial, it is recommended to disable the password manager built into Google Chrome.
Download the KeePassHttp plugin and copy the "KeePassHttp.plgx" file to the KeePass folder.
Then restart KeePass to load the new plugin.
Then, chromeIPass will display another message. To configure ChromeIPass, click the "Connect" button.
KeePassHttp will display a window for allow you to accept the new association. To do this, type "chromeIPass for Google Chrome" (for example) and click "Save".
If all goes well, chromeIPass display the message "chromeIPass has been configured using the identifier ...".
When you access a website that matches one or more entries in your KeePass database, a window "KeePassHttp: Confirm Access" is displayed.
Click "Allow" and check the "Rember this decision" box if you don't want to confirm each request manually.
Once you have confirmed the request, the proposals will be displayed.
If this is not the case, you can also click on the extension icon in the top right.
Then click the connect button on the website.
When you connect to a website, you can save the connection informations by clicking on the icon of the extension. You will have the choice between : create a new entry (New), update an existing entry (Update) or do nothing (Dismiss).
For Opera, there was an extension called "KeePass Auto-Type" but this extension is only useful if you have a version of Opera lower then 12.10.
Indeed, as indicated on the website of the author, recent versions of Opera support extensions for Google Chrome. (Besides, you have to realize that the "Settings" page of Google Chrome and the Opera page were very similar)
The solution is to install the "chromeIPass" extension in Opera.
To do this, download the installation files on GitHub, click on this link and unzip the downloaded file.
Then click the "Opera" button and click "Extensions".
In the "Extensions" tab that opens, click the "Developer Mode" button and click "Load unpacked extension".
Then, select the "chromeipass" folder located in the "passifox-master" folder.
The extension appears in the list. To configure it, refer to point concerning Google Chrome.
Note : If you have already configured the extension for Google Chrome, the plugin "KeePassHttp" is already installed. A second association is required.
