1Password extension and Lion Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Just upgraded to Lion yesterday and unfortunately the 1Password extension for OmniWeb no longer functions. Is there anything I can do to get it back?
 
Just upgraded my home Mac to Lion, and I'm seeing the same thing. AFAIK, we haven't changed anything on our end, so I sent Agilebits a support request. I'll post here when I hear back, but you may also want to contact them as well.
 
I, too, am experiencing this.
 
I just sent a ticket to 1Password support as follows:
"As you have supported 1password on OmniWeb, which is based on webkit, I would like to know if you plan to do so in the future. As of now, in Lion the extension no longer functions. I realize it is a small percent of the market, but we are true loyalists to OW. Thank you for your time."
We'll see.
 
*crossing fingers*
 
As far as I know, AgileBits have abandoned their previous plugin because it required Scripting Additions, which are no longer supported in Lion.

1Password will continue to function in Snow Leopard, but it is only available as a browser extension (and therefore not to OmniWeb) in Lion.
 
I've read every message in this thread. And, I might add, every message in many threads on other forums. I'm left wondering WTF?

Does anyone know what's going on? I also use FireFox. (Hey, cut me some slack. I test stuff I'm doing on various browsers to check compatibility.) I see the same narrative everywhere.

Is Apple trying to use semi-proprietary technology to squeeze out competing browsers? not directly, but by imposing unsurmountable development demands?

Say it ain't so, Steve! Oh. Sorry. I was thinking of Wozniak, not Jobs.

Does anyone have a clue what the deal is? Anyone who can give us a hint without being smashed by an avalanche of lawyers shaped like McIntosh apples? (Picture that in your imagination!)
 
For those who haven't been paying close attention, here's the background:

Apple is trying to make Safari more secure, so they've created a sandbox for browser extensions written in JavaScript—very similar to the extension mechanisms for Firefox and Chrome. AgileBits has rebuilt their 1Password browser extension using this approach, and they've got it working in those three browsers.

OmniWeb supports several mechanisms for extending the browser (some dating back to the mid-'90s), and those mechanisms still work—but none of them are JavaScript-based, so they're not compatible with this new 1Password browser extension. (Presumably, if you still have a copy of the older OmniWeb-compatible version of 1Password it would still work the same as it always did.)

So, how do we fix this?

Roustem (AgileBits' CEO) and I had a brief conversation last week about how we might get the latest 1Password working in OmniWeb, and it sounds like the easiest way would be for OmniWeb to implement the same sort of browser extension mechanism that Safari, Firefox, and Chrome have implemented. (That approach would have other benefits as well, potentially giving OmniWeb the ability to run other extensions.)

That seems like a reasonable approach to me, but we have a lot of higher priority projects on our plate at the moment (iCloud updates, OmniPlan for iPad, OmniOutliner 4, and a major update to OmniFocus) so I'm not sure how soon we'll be able to do that.

What can you do?

Keep letting us know this is important to you: that helps us decide where to put our resources. And please, don't blame Apple or AgileBits for making a very appropriate decision to implement a more secure system for browser extensions.

I normally don't like to waste folks' time with simple "thanks" posts, but I really appreciate you posting that, Ken.

You guys are awesome. Keep doing what you do.

"Thanks!" :-)
 
I found this yesterday and wondered if it would be any good for those of you having problems with 1Password and Lion, at least until Omni have time to get something sorted.
It's called PassHash and can be found here http://connorhd.co.uk/
I know the site says its a Chrome extension but it also works anywhere on the web apparently.
