[TIP/Question]:Save a webpage from firefox to keepass (using keepass as a multi platform password manager)

  • Hi All

    i Love keepass and have been using it years on linux (even thought the mono version is how shall i say this...well..). anyway. i have thought about a clever use of keepass to solve alot of my issues using multiple platforms.

    I am thinking of using keepass as a multi platform password manager (linux, windows android osX). i can already open boomarks easily from within FF with keepfox. i have imported all my FF json bookmarks into keepass and even launching them from within keepass using ctrl-U isnt bad. it all syncs well using dropbox and i get all my bookamrks (and passwords ofc) in every device/OS i use. almost perfect!

    the issue i have is how does one easily save a 'bookmark' IE a passowrdless keepass entry with just title/URL into keepas. keepfox dosent have that option and i was wondering if the community has any ideas on that

    in addition would love to hear if anyone else has been using keepass for the bookmark manager thing?

    best

    Z

    You can specify that a specific browser open a URL in the KeePass entry's URL field by using an URL override. You can also set a URL override to apply to all KeePass entries, or create a custom override. The available overrides are in Tools->Options->Integration(tab)->URL Scheme overrides.

    However, I don't how these overrides and options are handled by various plugins (e.g. KeeFox).

    Thx for the answer. i think though that you misunderstood the question. I want to be able to save a 'bookmark' from Firefox to keepass (or use another quick way to do it if not possible trough FF).

    The launching part is easily done in keepfox

    thx

    Go to the KeeFox site and suggest this addition.

    cheers, Paul
