i do not understand why mozilla does not include kwallet integration in the
core instead useless crap like "personas", but anyways i would love to see
any integration in KDE/Fedora because passwords should stored in a central
manager if available
Because it's not a KDE application. It's written for Gnome and uses the
Gnome keyring stuff.
As I've said before, this whole separation of wallet functions between
two different systems that don't talk to each other is stupid and
counter-productive. It's as if each DE used its own version of libc.
There's no basic technical justification for this. Each DE wants its own
user interface? Fine, but they do essentially the same things, so why
can't they both use a common library for keystore functionality? The
whole purpose of a wallet is to make things easier for the user. As
things stand, that only happens if the user stays with the apps from one
specific DE and never uses those of the other. Does anyone out there
actually do that?
