I'm aware of the keychain feature and I will do some research on that as well, but this particular case is a bit different, because this password cannot be stored on the keychain.
I'm using Firefox and it uses the Sync feature (for those of you who use that as well or know how it works). Unfortunately, Firefox becomes a bit annoying, always asking for the master password every time I run Firefox (after quitting the app).
So I would like to create a keyboard shortcut that automatically types in the password and hits Enter/Return, but I don't want the password to be visible on the macro itself, in case someone uses my computer. Sure, they will be able to use that shortcut and it will input the master password on Firefox, but they won't be able to actually see the password.
I'm not very familiar with how the Keychain works, aside from just saving my passwords when I'm prompted to save them. So you are saying I can save any password manually, even if it's not associated with a website or an app? Because, as I mentioned, Firefox (for this particular case) doesn't allow this master password to be saved to the keychain.
I tried adding a password, but I'm not 100% sure this is how it's done. If you can confirm...
Opened Keychain Access app
File > New Password Item
Keychain Item Name: "I just added a name that I can remember like - Firefox Master Password"
Account Name: "My username for my computer, in this case it's Danny Wyatt"
Password: "The password I want to use on Firefox"
Is this how to do it properly?
If so, then from there I can follow the instructions on the links you provide.
Please, let me know if I'm on the right path
Thanks for confirming!
I was looking at the Variables page and it seems very complex. I need to go over it when I have some extra time.
I was also looking at the Macro Library and saw the Secure Passwords group and imported it to see how it's built.
By the way, when I did that, it said that I already imported it (from a few hours ago, but then deleted the group). Why is it saying there's a duplicate, when the group is not there anymore? When I delete a group, is it going to a "trash bin" or something, so it's assuming I still have that other group there?
