Thanks for the review --
This is technically IE Tab's bug (or feature) since it intentionally doesn't run any IE addons -- there is likely a way around this by running an executable that hooks the window -- that is sub-optimal (a HACK) but something we're considering. You should be filing this bug with IE Tab, not LastPass. Almost every addon on mozilla doesn't work in IETab, and we gave a workaround too.

How do you mean it's confused, specifically? We do what we thought was the best possible way to handle this: we store based on the TLD, then if you have multiple accounts we sort and fill based on the closest match of host, url path, etc. For me it gets it right 100% of the time on every site after the first login.
bb1950 Wrote:It's automatic generation of passwords can be a real pain in the neck when trying to "sign up". Many times the log in for "signing up" is not the actual "log in". To retrieve the "secure password" generated for the actual "log in" can't be done. I have to end up send a request for a "forgotten password" and change the password to straighten things out. Very irritating! Needs to have a cleaner way to retrieve the newly generated password to use in a actual log in page!
We have so many ways to avoid this ever happening I'm shocked to hear you had this problem, and you likely misunderstood (which is the usability issue that we'll need to rectify):
- When you generate a password, we create a special account in your list 'Generated password for XXXX'
- That special account allows you to easy copy the password, the account is removed if we see you save a site with the same password.
- You can also reopen the generate password dialog and pull down the history to recopy a password you setup in the same browsing session.
I'd be interested in hearing in what steps lead to this happening as we need to make it less confusing.
