Any tips for logging into the Disqus popup window?

edited November 25 in 1Password in the Browser

Many sites use Disqus for their comment system, which is annoying as it has a separate username/password from the site you are visiting.

The problem

When I interact with a Disqus discussion, a login window pops up requesting my Disqus credentials. The addon ( I'm using Firefox ) bar is hidden, so I cannot click on the 1password browser addon icon to fill in the password.

The workaround

I open the 1password macOS application , look up my Disqus entry, and copy/password credentials from there.

Is there a better way to handle this?

I used to have autofill turned on in the addon settings, but it tends to get in the way of the Web page content so I have it turned off. It did solve this problem, but it caused other problems.

I open to anything, from modifying the browser to force it to display the 1Password addon on the popup window, to installing another addon that changes popup window behavior, to really, anything that enables me to use 1Password in every browser window , popup window, iframe, and so on.


Firefox 89.0.2
OS: macOS 12.0.1
1Password: v7.9.1
1Password Extension: 2.1.4

1Password Version: 7.9.1
Extension Version: 2.1.4
OS Version: 12.0.1

    Hi @komrad!

    The addon ( I'm using Firefox ) bar is hidden, so I cannot click on the 1password browser addon icon to fill in the password.

    Is there a reason why you are keeping it hidden?

    I didn't do anything to hide it, I click on the "login to disqus" link and that window pops up.

    It's been a long while since I've done javascript, but I remember being able to customize popup windows when opening them. That's probably what the code used to embed Disqus into a Web page does.

    I found a work around for Firefox here . Basically, it makes the window up in a new tab instead of a window. Since my main browser window has the 1Password add-on icon showing, I can use 1Password to login.

    Let me know if you are aware of a better way. This works for me.

    That's a very nice workaround I did not know in Firefox, thank you for sharing with the Community!

    I just wanted to suggest dragging and dropping credentials in these cases (this is what I personally do), but if you manage to configure this once and for all, so that you can use the browser extension regularly, I think this is even better :+1:
