How do I enable 1Password only for specific websites?

Hi. I have started using 1Password to manage credentials recently for all my work-related accounts.
The browser plugin for Firefox works well for that.

On the other hand, I have been using Firefox Lockwise for all my personal accounts for years now (e.g. my ebay, or facebook account). I don't want to change that.

However, the 1Password plugin blocks my workflow - it tries to replace the Lockwise built into Firefox with itself. Firefox stops suggesting and autocompleting my credentials when I open non-work related websites. Instead, 1Password offers to fill the login forms, but of course, I don't have those credentials in 1Password vaults.

So as a workaround I have to constantly enable and disable the plugin when I want to login to a work-related website, or another website.

Is there a way to enable 1Password only for specific domains? That would solve my issue - i.e. have FF manage everything by default, but enable the plugin on the handful of work-related websites.

Thanks,
Martin

    Hi @Mao42!

    I think this is a difficult use case to manage manually with whitelists and blacklists, and the easiest solution would be to use two browser profiles, one for work with 1Password installed, and one for personal usage without the 1Password extension.

    Actually, it's a super easy use case to manage manually. It is definitely much much easier than using two separate browser profiles. That way I'd have to somehow manage two separate browser instances with two profiles and constantly switch between them. I don't want that. I have a ton of other stuff in my browser that is shared between my workload needs. E.g. Bookmarks, search preferences, other plugins that support whitelisting, like SmartProxy.

    If SmartProxy extension can do that, why not 1Password?

    The list of domains I'd like to run 1Password with is quite small - maybe a dozen or so. I don't understand why would that be a problem to manage. I agree it would be best if you could select if you'd like to run 1Password in opt-in mode, or op-out mode. However, having just opt-in mode available would be enough.

    But as far as I can tell 1Password does not support this.

    Firefox neither - I can only select whether I want 1Password to run in private windows, which is not enough.

    @Mao42:

    I am afraid that I am not familiar with SmartProxy as I have not heard of it before, so I cannot comment on it. Sorry!

    Firefox neither - I can only select whether I want 1Password to run in private windows, which is not enough.

    When it comes to password managers, typically they require to be the only ones active to avoid interference with each other. For example, 1Password recommends turning off the browser password manager exactly because of this:

    Turn off the built-in password manager in your browser

    So I imagine that Firefox behaves in a similar way. Because of this, using multiple browser profile would allow you to use both password managers without interference, even though it might not be an ideal solution for you. Perhaps this is something we can think about for the future though :+1:

    OK then.

    That's all I can ask for. Thanks!

    Hey @Mao42. On behalf of Ana, you're very welcome. One more thing you might try: does it help if you turn off the 1Password inline menu, under Settings? You could then fill your logins from the pop-up and not have 1Password appear on pages where you're not using it for the majority of your sites.

    Turning off "Make 1Password the default password manager" might help your situation as well, although I can't say for certain what the issue with Lockwise is since I do not use it. :smile:

    Hello Michael. Thank you for your suggestion! This does indeed solve 95% of the problem :smile:

    Still, domain filtering would be even better, but this helps tremendously :) now I can use FF lockwise by default, and use 1Password with a popup menu by rightclicking.
