Open & Fill from desktop


I've just noticed that 1 Password won't fill after invoking open & fill from the desktop - I don't know if the previous version did, as I never tested it. Is this known?

Steps I've followed
Close all browsers
ctrl+alt+\ & select entry
browser is opened, and correct page navigated to.
No fill action occurs


1Password Version: 6.8.484
Extension Version:
OS Version: windows 10
Sync Type: Cloud

    @numpty: It's something we're working on improving, but depending on the browser it may not be possible. Which browser version are you using?

  • Fair enough, i was guessing it had something to do with page load times
    Firefox 58b11

    @numpty: Page load times can have an impact on that across all versions of 1Password (the extension may try to fill before there is a form loaded), but in the case of Firefox it is pretty notorious for having issues on launch that prevent the 1Password extension from functioning for a bit. So you're kind of right, except it isn't the webpage load that we're waiting on there, it's the browser. It's something we'll continue to investigate though, as we'd really like it to be much smoother. In the mean time, you should have much better luck if Firefox is open already.
