    advice needed please 16th Apr 18 at 3:12 PM
    I've got myself into a bit of a bother over entering competitions.

    Initially , I was entering via mobile, then I tried lastpass, and, roboform, but if I'm honest I've had problems with both.

    I guess I started back to front, in that I started entering competitions on Firefox which saved my logins.

    Now, even with roboform on my computer, and, with the last pass Firefox mobile addon, it's just not working properly for me.

    I really don't want to have to start again, entering and copying logins from Firefox to Chrome etc. (For roboform and lastpass), but I just can't think of any other options.

    I've tryed the both apps on my phone, and, the one app, had its own browser, and, would only open one tab at a time, which was very frustrating.
    The lastpass add-on displays an icon to autofill, but even though I've checked autofill, it just takes me to the login page of last pass, and, still doesn't fill in forms.

    Can anyone please suggest the best way forward?
    it's currently taking me several hours to manually enter my details each time, even with keyboard shortcuts on my phone

    Thanks

    i don't use roboform or anything like that, just the native Chrome autofill.

    You can import these details into Chrome from Firefox :

    i use desktop and autofill does the trick with notepad having some info aswell and copy and paste over.

    ipads / phones does take longer. Maybe focus on the comps you want to enter rather than as many as you can

    twitter comps might be your best bet on large RT comps

    I'm wondering what you mean when you say these aren't working properly for you?

    I use Lastpass. It's not always spot on, but mostly, it's fine. I sometimes save sites and 'entered information', but mostly, I autofill. I've set this up in "Preferences" under "Hotkeys". I use control+A to autofill with my default identity. I do this on a laptop. It might be different on a tablet or phone. I also make use of Chrome to autofill sometimes.

    I used Roboform ages ago and that was OK too, but I prefer Lastpass.

    Have you tried looking through all the options to see if you can fine tune it to suit you best? Also, if you could be more specific about what the probs are you are experiencing, it might help us to help you.

    You can sync Roboform across lots of devices or browsers, I've been using it for years & never had any problems with it.

    I've installed roboform on my computer - filled in a profile and checked all of the options - but it wouldn't work at all with Firefox, and, I actually tried three different versions/add-ons. It just wouldn't do anything, I ever messaged both the developers of lastpass and roboform, as one of these had the option to transfer logins from Firefox, but it wasn't working.

    I installed chrome too, but, I guess the answer is I'll have to start again, and, manually login one by one until the logins are read from Chrome.
