Some links on Chrome not prompting to save passwords (when Firefox and Safari do)

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/01/20

For quite some time now, Chrome (think years) refuses to prompt for saving passwords whereas Firefox and Safari do prompt and save them, even for site types that it used to save passwords for in the past.

It has been annoying enough for too long now that I tried to do better than the Google searches I used back when I saw this happen first.

Below are some links based on new searches (starting with [Wayback] adding a password in chrome settings – Google Search); hopefully I can try them after I made a list of sites that Chrome does not show the password save prompt for.

Solutions I tried that failed (but maybe useful for others):

Solutions still to try:

First/Last-Tab: Ctrl-1/9 (or Command-1/9): Switch Between Tabs in Any Browser Using Shortcut Keys

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/10

Only recently, I learned this works on just about any web-browser:

  • Ctrl-9 (macOS: Command-9) goes to LAST tab
  • Ctrl-1 (macOS: Command-1) goes go FIRST tab

Via: [WayBack] Switch Between Tabs in Any Browser Using Shortcut Keys

For those keyboard ninjas who hate using the mouse, switching between tabs in your browser window is essential since most people probably have a bunch of tabs open at once. […]

If you want to go to a specific tab, you can press CTRL + N, where N is a number between 1 and 8. Unfortunately, you can’t go past 8, so if you have more than eight tabs, you’ll have to use a different keyboard shortcut or just click on it. CTRL + 9 will take you to the last tab, even if there are more than 8!

To bypass a Chrome certificate/HSTS error, you can type ‘badidea’ (previously ‘thisisunsafe’) without quotes (this might change in the future)

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/11/11

For expired or self-signed certificates with an untrusted chain, you might want to by base the Chrome certificate/HSTS error message.

Instead of clicking a few times, you can also type ‘badidea’ (this used to be ‘thisisunsafe’ and might change again someday).

Based on: [WayBack] security – Does using ‘badidea’ or ‘thisisunsafe’ to bypass a Chrome certificate/HSTS error only apply for the current site? – Stack Overflow

Found via [WayBack] KPN-klanten kunnen Experiabox V10A niet benaderen door verlopen certificaat – Computer – Nieuws – Tweakers

Source code that handles this: [WayBack] components/security_interstitials/core/browser/resources/interstitial_v2.js – chromium/src – Git at Google

/**
 * This allows errors to be skippped by typing a secret phrase into the page.
 * @param {string} e The key that was just pressed.
 */
function handleKeypress(e) {
  var BYPASS_SEQUENCE = 'badidea';
  if (BYPASS_SEQUENCE.charCodeAt(keyPressState) == e.keyCode) {
    keyPressState++;
    if (keyPressState == BYPASS_SEQUENCE.length) {
      sendCommand(SecurityInterstitialCommandId.CMD_PROCEED);
      keyPressState = 0;
    }
  } else {
    keyPressState = 0;
  }
}
