Description

4 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:29.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140428193813

Steps to reproduce:

Chrome is now offering a way to encrypt text fields to PGP[1]. It would be great if there was an official way for Firefox to do the same, either as a builtin feature or an official add-on (with a security bug bounty).

Actual results:

1) Focus on a text area.

2) Type the message.

3) Message is unencrypted.


Expected results:

1) Enable the feature and add/create a PGP keypair.

2) Focus on a text area.

3) Firefox inserts an overlaying iframe the text area owned by the encryption feature.

4) Type your message.

5) Click on an icon to encrypt/sign the message.

6) Message is encrypted and/or signed.

7) Encrypted message is inserted into the original text area.
