    red dotted line appears around username and password box but not login button. Looks to be a javascript error when the login button is pressed.

  2. Hi Keith,
    Can you tell me on what website that is happening? Feel free to email me directly.

    How does one tell PassPack to forget its autologin training for a particular site? I invoked the training script. It required several attempts, but finally Passpack invoked the autologin. Unfortunately PassPack fills the username field with gibberish. How do I discard this autologin so I can try again?

    Just send us the link and we’ll take care of it for you.

  5. Hi,

    Is it possible to re-teach PassPack for a Site? I think something went wrong because I had the same site open in an other browser window when I was “teaching” PassPack. Now it’s filling in the correct username and password but it doesn’t “press” the login-button at the end.

    I already deleted the entry and entered it again and I already disabled the autologin function and enabled it again. But nor of them worked.

    Browser: Firefox
    Site: http://www.login-3.loginserver.ch

    Can you help me?

    Beside that, GREAT (!!) tool you have here.. :)

  6. Hi Sojo.
    I had that removed. You didn’t do anything wrong, it’s simply one of those tough sites that we need to manually train.

    We’re making some improvements to the auto-login script now, so this will be a good test case for us. Thanks!

    For future reference: there is no need to delete or reinsert your entries – the auto-login and teaching process is completely unconnected to your account.


  7. The main login on the USAA page works fine, however, once you are logged in and try to access any of your accounts, there is a secondary security check, where you have to enter a PIN into the website to view your account information. I could not train the auto login system to work with this, since there is no “login” form field visible — just a password field for the PIN and a submit button. How do I get auto login to work on pages like this?

  8. Hello Ray,
    I’m sorry, the auto-login can’t handle multiple page logins. You’ll have to copy and paste the info for the second page from your entry.

    Sorry about that.

    A typical domain name registry login page for managing domain name information doesn’t just have a username, password, and login button. In addition, it has the domain name field, which should be filled in by PassPack autologin.

    It should be easy for you to generalize the autologin to enter any number of pieces of information in particular controls, instead of supporting only username/password logins.

  10. Hi David,
    Thanks for being so active on the blog! Yes, we could in theory generalize the process, and we might in the future (no promises though).

    In the meantime, we went with the least common denominator principal, and tried to keep it simple.

    Are there any other fields that you would finds useful?

    Tara, Thanks for being so responsive!

    As I said, I prefer a generalized approach. I currently use KeePass/KeeForm and find that being specific to only a username and password field is its main problem. There is no reason that PassPack needs to have this problem.

    Besides the domain name field for registry management, some sites require two passwords (with different names), such as a username and an account name (example: Click and Pledge History Management). Another example is thestatus.com, which has a quirky login page. Another example is bank login pages such as for East Cambridge Savings Bank (https://www.ecsbonline.com/onlineserv/CM/), which require both a company name and an individual name and password. The Federal income tax payment site (https://www.eftps.com/eftps/login.do) requires more than just a username and password.

    I could give more examples.

  12. Thanks for the examples. Yes, agreed, this is definitely a limit of the Auto-login. After all, even *we* require 2 steps to login. [smile]

    We’re aware of it, but also haven’t found the right solution yet. We’ll definitely keep looking for one though. A number of people have brought up this same issue.
