Generate Secure Password Broken

Postby mike380 » Fri Nov 01, 2019 3:00 pm

Chrome Version:
Code: Select All Code
Version 77.0.3865.90 (Official Build)


LastPass Version:
Code: Select All Code
LastPass Extension

Version: 4.36.0
Built: Fri Oct 25 2019 21:59:00 GMT+0200 (Central European Summer Time)
Binary Component: false


The "Generate Secure Password" feature is broken in several places. One way to recreate the issue is as follows:
1. Right click on a form field and then select "LastPass" -> "Generate Secure Password"
2. Attempt to change the options (like password length for instance)

The password does not update, and if you open the developer console you will see the following error:
Code: Select All Code

chrome-extension://h…GenPassHistory.js:1 Uncaught RangeError: Invalid language tag: en_us
    at Date.toLocaleString (<anonymous>)
    at u (chrome-extension://h…GenPassHistory.js:1)
    at chrome-extension://h…GenPassHistory.js:1
    at Array.map (<anonymous>)
    at Object.o [as getWithReadableDate] (chrome-extension://h…GenPassHistory.js:1)
    at Object.getWithReadableDate (chrome-extension://h…oahd/lpfulllib.js:1)
    at BetterGeneratePasswordDialog.setup (betterGeneratePasswordDialog.js:1)
    at dialog.js:1
    at D (dialogs.js:1)
    at i (dialogs.js:1)


It is also broken if launched directly from the app icon or the vault, however it does seem to work when generating new passwords on sites with the icon that appears directly in the form field.

Secure Password Generator not working

Postby jacobacro » Sat Nov 02, 2019 12:47 pm

This was working last week. Now the password generator is acting strange. There is no more option to "generate secure password". There is a copy password button. I can change the number of characters to higher but not back to lower. I can click on the "easy to say", "easy to read", and "all characters" radio buttons but I cant unclick them. The password length is stuck on 37 characters long. I don't get it.

I'm seeing the same problem. There is something wrong with the "Generate Secure Password" option. It says "Please enter a password..." when it first comes up. If I press enter, it will generate a password one time, but then it won't generate it again.

I am having the same issue in the Chrome Extension. I rebooted windows and still not working... Then re-download and installed Lastpass for desktop and Chrome, rebooted and still not working. If you move the number slider or check and uncheck an option the password generator does not budge/change. WTH?

This is definitely NOT working. The generator is throwing JS errors.

Uncaught RangeError: Invalid language tag: en_us

Feedback from the "other side" - the generate password is working on my Windows Desktop and my Android phone using Chrome, Vivaldi, & Firefox. Latest version of LastPass. MS Windows 10, version 1903 (Build 18362.418) and Android 9 Kernel Version 4.9.112-16578910 on Samsung S9 plus with AT&T.

There are multiple ways to access the generator. It works if you use the autofill button but craps itself if you right click > LastPass > Generate Secure Password.
The url shows something like: chrome-extension://hdokiejnpimakedhajhdlcegeplioahd/tabDialog.html?dialog=betterGeneratePassword
It generates one password then is stuck.

This extension was last updated on Friday, 1 Nov 2019.
