Password hints and Firefox 89

Post by smegu »

Now that the latest version of Firefox (recently released v89) doesn't display password hints anymore, I believe we're out of browsers that do.
Is there any known workaround to this? Can they be safely ignored?

For now I downloaded the extended support release of firefox. Kind of a temporary fix though

The admin is aware of the issue and is in the process of fixing it. Good to know there is a temporary workaround, thanks.
The issue will be resolved ASAP, some levels are unsolvable without the hints.
Meanwhile, for those of you stuck, visit the Discord server or the IRC channel, someone there should be able to supply the login hint as required.

I tested the latest version of Google Chrome (Version 91.0.4472.106) on the first 12 levels and the password hints have worked fine. It first shows the PH and then the boxes for un/pw.

Yes, the admin has installed a fix, all should be good now.

I think the people who have javascript disabled on their browser are kinda out of luck though.

Hey, if you look at the passworded levels on the german version (and chinese i think too) the password hints are not alerts.
