I’d like the option to remove the little number badge in Firefox (and other browsers) which shows how many logins match the current website. It’s a very small thing, but for me it’s just an annoyance since I have multiple accounts on most websites and honestly don’t care how many I have; I prefer the look of the extension icon when there aren’t any listed matches. Adding a selection in the extension settings to disable it, possibly with the badge still on by default, would be quite useful to myself and others who either don’t like or just don’t want the number of accounts listed.
(I’m not great with keywords, so I apologize in advance if this has been brought up with different terms; I ran a few searches and didn’t find it.)
I’m not against the idea, but I want to add my usercase. For me, number shown is an indication that I can safely ctrl + shift + L my login on this site. I know that I’m on paypal.com*, not on paypaI.com, because number of logins is not 0.
Now, it doesn’t really matter from security point of view, because bitwarden wouldn’t fill password on paypaI.com, as it’s is not a match paypal.com record. However, I tend to treat this number as a soft confirmation that I didn’t land on a spoof site (I also changed most of my important/critical entries to be an exact match to login url, not even to a domain).
I totally can see how it can be annoying though, so I think it could be a setting.
That’s an extremely effective example with paypal; I only noticed the difference after reading your footnote. I imagine it’s also quite useful as a quick means of knowing whether you’ve already signed up for a site, to save the effort of opening the extension and searching or creating a new account.
In my usage case, I have many accounts on the websites I visit most so I’m seeing a near-constant display of anywhere from 5 to 9+ when I don’t personally need it. I would definitely want the removal to be a slider option and not the only behaviour offered.
The badge count gives away that one either has a login to the site that is being visited, or that one has multiple pseudonyms on the site. Not cool if someone happens to be shoulder surfing, or if you use the same BitWarden account for both personal and work purposes.
This is a privacy issue for me, not just a cosmetic one.
How many people who want this are using the desktop version of Firefox? If enough people reply, I can post a how-to describing how to accomplish this in Firefox with the current version of bitwarden.
It will take me about 45-60 minutes to figure out how to do it and to type up clear instructions, so I only want to spend that time if it will really help others (I don’t need this functionality myself).
