I would prefer to revert to 1Password 7 as well. There are quite a number of aspects of 1Password 8 which feel like a downgrade and not an improvement.
This comes up frequently now. The folks at 1PW don't seem to respond to these requests. But when I asked, another user provided steps in this thread:
Thanks for pointing the direction @pinecone.
I started the thread. Thanks for confirming that 1Password 7 is still available and the process to reinstall it. It works. Here is what Walkingplaces described so you do not have to search.
Go to safari and uninstall the browser extension
delete 8 from applications (your account will still be linked in ~/Library)
Install 7 from the App Store
you can now open safari and if necessary turn on the 1Password extension in safari prefs
Don’t install 1Password browser extension standalone in the App Store there’s a version integrated in 1P7
For the record, 1Password 7 is also available to be installed via homebrew:
brew info 1password7
==> 1password7: 7.9.6 (auto_updates)
EDIT nevermind, a reboot and reinstall of the app and turning on extension seems to have solved it for now. Really hoping the disasterous search implementation of v8 gets changed back to what v7 had, otherwise we'll never be able to upgrade to 8...
Can someone help, I followed the steps to revert back to v7, but now the extension won't work in Safari. When I go to preferences and click the checkbox to turn it on, it flashes in the toolbar but disappears. I'm unable to click on it or use it and it doesn't show up in the customize toolbar options. I've tried various attempts at unchecking the box and restarting safari, etc. but so far I can't get the extension back on Safari. I need to get this working since v8 is unusable for our team, appreciate any help you can give!
Try the following steps and let me know if they help:
If you're still having trouble after trying those steps, let me know and I'll be able to help out.
I also uninstalled 1Password 8 and the Safari Extension and re-downloaded 1Password 7.
Might try it again in a year or two...
