I am new to this board and I hope, that anyone can help me. Between Tuesday and Sunday the unexplainable problem accured, that I cannot run the fingerprint application "simple pass" with firefox at www.facebook.com.
Due to comfort and safety, I use the app at this website and some other mailing services.
After "pulling" my finger over the scanner/reader the "ok" sound appears, but I will not be logged into facebook - I am get this message:
A password with an high level of safety avoids unauthorized access to your account. Set a new password or click on generate ("erstellen") to generate a new password automatically.
The application works STILL with all other password secures services I use, but with facebook. The setting of www.facebook.com is still in the password manager, but also little changes within the url like de-de.facebbok.com or facebook.com/login/... do not help - I get also the mentioned message.
This happens allthough I have the same secure password since bevor I had my HP notebook! After signing in the old fashioned manually way, I log out and when I am trying simple pass again it still does not work.
But why does the problem only appear on one website?
Does Simple Pass just fix on th panel "New (Neues) Password" on the facebook homepage? Has this panel been there on Tuesaday when everything was still working?
How do I solve this problem?

nice to be not the only one having this issue. Did you try to reinstall Simple Pass? Or even system recovery? In my case it worked perfecly until I did not use my laptop for 5 days. Maybe facebook changed configs like source codes or something. I will ask them but I think they are not into the function of Simple Pass.

It is a new version by egistec - but it does not work with Firefox 6 - i am waiting for an update

Hi there, i don't know if you have tried this already, but i was having the same problem and this fixed it for me. I opened up the simple pass thing on my computer. start>all programs>security and protection>simple pass. It shows the icons that you have set up for simplepass, mine showed facebook, but still wouldn't work, i right clicked the facebook icon in the simple pass screen and it brought up the settings, i made sure the username and password were correct and realized that for some reason the "enable website log in" was not checked. I checked that and now it works. Also if you do not see the facebook icon when you open simple pass you can add it by clicking the "+" button next to "view all." hope this helps. I am using simple pass 1012, i don't know if that makes a difference.
