There have been recent reports here on the forums with issues related to the browser extension (version 1.56). I have compiled a list in the post below if you want to browse them.
It looks like the Bitwarden team has been working overtime to pump out updates to the latest extension. **Version 1.56.5 is available now on the Chrome Web Store. Releases for non-Chromium browsers (e.g., Firefox) will be rolling out soon for within-browser updates, or check out the Bitwarden Github page for the latest browser extension releases.
What can I do to try and fix my issues?
Update your Bitwarden extension to the latest available version. Also make sure you are running the latest release of the browser!
If you still have issues after updating the extension, you can also try some of these solutions that have solved many problems for other people here in the community:
Force a sync of your vault by going to Settings → Sync → Sync Vault Now
Disable Auto-fill on Page Load. Go to Settings → Options → uncheck Enable Auto-fill on Page Load
Logout of Bitwarden and login again. Go to Settings → Log Out → Log Out
Disable the extension, restart the browser, then enable the extension again
Uninstall the extension, logout of Chrome, restart Chrome, login to Chrome, reinstall the extension
Below is a list of the issues that may have been affected in the recent Chrome browser extension. If you have tried the potential fixes above and those have not helped, you might browse the threads below for other solutions:
Hi Bazza. Whether or not your extensions auto-update will depend on how you have setup your browser options. If you have set your extensions to update automatically within your browser, then yes, the Bitwarden extension should eventually auto-update.
If you haven’t enabled automatic updates of your extensions, you will have to update them manually within your browser. There is no need to remove the old one and install the new one separately.
Regarding notifications, yes, I am sure someone here will let us know as soon as it starts rolling out, and shortly after that I will update this thread. Cheers!
The updated Bitwarden extension (version 1.56.3) for Chrome is now published in the Chrome Web Store, so please update the extension if your browser is not set to update it automatically. It may also be a good idea to disable the extension, restart Chrome, then re-enable the extension after it has updated to version 1.56.3.
If it still does not work for you, there are some suggestions in the first post of this thread.
If you were having problems with the previous release of the extension, I hope this fixes everything for you!
