Keylogger Firefox Extension


This is my latest Firefox extension I'm working on. There's been too many times when I've lost a post on a message board, or an email, or something similar because my browser crashed. This Firefox keylogger will record that, so I can retrieve the lost text. I added the "Minimum string size to log" so it won't save really short text--like passwords.

Does your ani-virus pick it up as a keylogger ? When will it be available ?

The Writer said...

It is not picked up as a virus by an anti-virus program--from their perspective it's just another Firefox extension.

It's available right now: http://stormhorse.com/keylogger-1.1-fx.xpi

Surprisingly, my blog is now the third result in Google for "Firefox Keylogger Extension."

As a result, I'm going to post a link straight to the official Firefox Add-Ons page.

any chance to make it ff 3.5 compatible?

Not really, unless someone else wants to take over the project. I have a lot on my plate right now and no plans to put more time into it right now.

I tried modify this extension to run on ff version 3.5, and after modify the "install.rdf", value in "em:maxVersion" to 3.5 it just works...
Enjoy :)

I decided make this extension working on ff 3.5 before I had realized that is simple, and get it works only by modify installer.
But if I can help with this extension, I would like to offer my hands :)...
I will try make some small modifications which I need, and then you will see, if I could be helpful.

Thanks, this is really a very usefull app. I have always used Key Loggers through Win 95, 98 and now XP. It is very usefull when you wanna make sure not to lose any work. A very simple and not stealth Keylogger is ideal for this pourpose.
