I didn’t say broken password, I said broken pop-up. There is no title bar and no close button = broken. The pop-up doesn’t fade away like a notice, it just sits there in front of the web page, forever.
Expected behavior by whom?? This is neither expected, or necessary. In fact, it’s downright irritating. Even if there WAS a close button, it would still force me to perform extra clicks every time I log in to a website. As it stands, I have to do a page change action of some sort just to get it off of the screen.
Obviously, [tagd0tbutl0t] doesn’t understand it’s function. I’ve seen the issue listed elsewhere, and nobody else understands its function either,they all assume it’s a glitch that you’ll repair in the next release.
This feature does not exist. You are referring to the auto sign-in feature, which does NOT have an option to prompt.
WRONG. Website password credentials are stored per website. Somebody would have to hack the internet to steal a password from the chromium password store. Specifically, they would have to hack a DNS server to serve the wrong IP address as being authoritative for a given URL. THEN they would have to hack the security certificates for the website. Then they would have to hack the webstie to replicate the expected web pages that the end user will see. Then they would have to hack in the bits to steal the password.
All for the rather small distribution area of a single DNS server. Still, even that would land you in a Federal Prison. If you wanted to hack the actual internet and hack the entire DNS system, basically every online police agency, interpol and the world in general would be dedicated to hunting you down.
Pretty sure that the result isn’t worth the effort. That’s probably why nobody has attempted it yet. Some things just aren’t worth the effort.
My example above is on THIS website! Are you tryin to say that you’re trying to steal your own end users passwords? That sounds pretty silly.
Again, the feature is called Auto sign-in, and there is no option to ask for a prompt. Note that I have auto sign-in enabled, and I’m still getting the pop-up. From you’re description, this sounds like it is NOT expected behavior.
WHAT?? That makes no sense. Are you telling me that the feature I see working does not work?
Most websites use persistent cookies for auto log-in functions. It sounds like you’re describing a duplicate function that is unnecessary.
WRONG. A persistent pop-up with no option to close it is BY DEFINITION an anti-feature.
Again, my example above is THIS WEBSITE. Are you accusing yourselves of stealing your own passwords??
WRONG. See my statements above.
Quite the opposite, now I’m concerned that not only do you not know what you’re talking about, now I’m concerned that people in charge of the Brave project might be just as clueless.
No disrespect. I still love the browser. I do want to see these issues resolved before I share it with my clients, friends and family, and recommend it to the masses however.
