Chrome and F-Secure KEY

I have not been using KEY for a while and today when I tested it will not work with Chrome version 35.0.1916.114 m and F-Secure KEY Version 1.6.139.


User and password fields will not take an entry from KEY. 


Any ideas?

    If you not meet and mean something new (sorry if it's like that).


    With F-Secure Key and Chromium/Blink/Google Chrome some kind of troubles around "accessibility"-points.

    Which probably should be fix in some of new versions of Google Chrome (?!) - which probably not fixed yet.


    About current one situation topics:



    And this one about Opera (which based on Blink-core);



    Previously... was enough to edit "chrome://accessibility" (changed to "turn on").

    But after Google Chrome 33 it's start be without "memory" for that actions.


    And able to launch browser with "specific keys";

    "--force-renderer-accessibility" - which can be helpful, but it's just some kind of "workaround";

    And also... if it's not related with "known trouble".


    Maybe here something around Administrators-rights during launch application or 64-bit version of application.


    Also.. here able to get a little be "new" version  ->

    The chrome://accessibility did not work few days ago, it just printed the username but not password.


    Now when I updated KEY Client the chrome://accessibility did the trick..


  • How did you "update KEY Client"?  I have the latest from F-Secure Key installed on my mac and autofill still doesn't work.  I checked the "chrome://accessibility" and it is turned on.  Still no use.

    Here was about Windows-client probably.


    If it's same with your setting also ->

    Here able to get new one version too (it's again new one version).


    Maybe for Mac too (?!). And maybe with Mac-version another kind of trouble (?!).

    Hi Janne & KhanHannan!


    Haven't heard anything in this thread for a while, so just wondering if you were still having these Chrome/Key issues?

  • I have tried downloading the new version and then installing it, but yet no use ... I am sure it probably is just a user error at this point of time, but I don't think I can wait to figure out what my user error is.  I think I better try some other password manager.  It's a shame that I paid for the yearly subscription but there is not much happening with this product.  On my phone, I see that they removed the special character capability as well -- all the special chars that I have now is a plus, a dot and a minus sign ... is that for real?  And to top it off, the syncing stopped working.  This is just not looking good anymore.
