New Browser Extension is cumbersome !

Just noticed for my Lastpass Extension for Firefox and Chrome the new look!!! Who came up with that?

How do I go back to the previous.

The new one you have to launch the vault to use the extension.

The old one was a streamlined version of easily selected web sites.

The new one!

v4.104.0 changed that. No sorting, no /Enter/ after search (to get to the first result you need 4x TAB 😉 ) and very slow while changing pass (opening vault)

Re: New Browser Extension is cumbersome !

Much more than just that.  LP also broke context menu and ID/pwd dropdown, etc., #1-3 (listed below) happened so consistently (100%) despite initial attempts to fix LP,  that for many weeks (for months?) I thought this was an intentional LP design choice, either made without understanding my frequent use case and/or intended to incent (annoy!) free users to upgrade or leave.  I was quite surprised -- and pleased -- when the extension suddenly worked as expected (albeit with annoying multiple clicks in menu bar icon), then disappointed when LP usually didn't thereafter. (Today, LP context menu is working in new Firefox private browser window with initial login, but not in regular Firefox windows previously open.)

  1. Context menu does not offer applicable accounts/passwords for site.
  2. Ditto LP ID/pwd icon dropdown.
  3. Ditto LP extension menu bar icon, plus doesn't show folder structure and requires multiple clicks to work around ad and upgrade-feature-only notice.
    (To actually obtain ID/password, click on extension menubar icon, search, select account, copy ID, paste ID, go back to icon, repeat search, select, and copy.  OR, first time through, select edit to hold my place.)
  4. Autofill sometimes doesn't autofill -- or even sometimes autofills with the ID/pwd for a different site.
  5. For two-step logins (ID, next, pwd), LP sometimes blanks second ID or reverts it to prior autofill (if autofill worked) where I have multiple accounts (e.g., multiple Microsoft Windows accounts -- me, Dad, spouse --  plus subject matter or old msn/hotmail/outlook/live email accounts).

Yes, I've closed and updated Firefox _and_ Edge (including manual About check), multiple times and recently.
Yes, I've cleared local data and refreshed vault, multiple times in both browsers, and recently.
Yes, I've manually both restarted and shutdown Win10, plus monthly auto-updates ran successfully (with planned delay), all multiple times and recently.
Yes, I have disabled and enabled the extension in both Edge, multiple times, and Firefox.
Yes, I have tried LP in Edge and Firefox private browsing windows.
I think at some point I removed and added the extension in Edge with an intervening close Edge plus Win10 restart, but that was so long ago I can't be sure of the exact steps.

I guess this just got pushed to me.  I just noticed the new look today, even though I use it daily.

I hate it and want to fallback to the previous version.

 

Everyone finished changing all their passwords in their vaults after the latest hack?  Wish they had an automated change password option.

This lets You go back to previous menu

Vault -> Advanced Options -> turn off "use improved save and fill"

Re: New Browser Extension is cumbersome !

Agreed new version is awful. Slow and keyboard shortcuts no longer work.

 

Let me be abundantly clear GoTo: if you ever enforce this new version on your users, it will be a dealbreaker for people like me. You will lose huge numbers of LastPass subscribers. You are the market leader because people like your browser extension. This complete redesign is like Apple deciding to add a hardware keyboard to their iPhone or Tesla abandoning electric and going combustion-engine. A total, dumb regression to what is your core competency.

Re: New Browser Extension is cumbersome !

thanks this worked for me! really sad lastpass doesn't test features before shipping, which is telling of how they develop their product.
