I'd go one further. Not only is it "rude and bad business", in my view, it is borderline criminal fraud.
This is a breach of contract, and just plain slime-bag ethics.
The creators of Roboform should be sued for their unethical behavior.
At a minimum, out of principal, I certainly will NOT pay for v7, or EVER purchase one of their products again. The only way they get away with kidnapping your date is when people pay the ransom.
This is little better than infecting you with a virus, which they fix (for a price):shifty:
I am a heavy user, with nearly 500 shortcuts / password stored on USB in Roboform 6. I was having issues with Roboform 6, including their sneaky "Update" process that installed v7, without telling me it would not use my existing PAID license, and that I had to pay for their "Update". This nearly destroyed my v6 installation (it was backed up, of course).
Then, as you mention, Firefox 4 completely broke the Roboform 6 toolbar, and Roborm will not fix this, in spite of having taken my money.
I will be moving to "Lastpass" and XMarks" for the same functionality, for less money. The XMarks free version, along with the Firefox Session Manager and Synch process should work fine for shortcuts (much better than Roboform), then I'll probably pay the $12 for premium Lastpass, and place it on my Roboform 2Go thumb drive.
This will remind me to trash the name / behavior of Roboform at every opportunity.
Roboform can KMA.
I hope other Firefox 4 / Robofom 6 users do the same :mad:
