Windows 10 Accounts Port

Windows 10 Accounts Port

Sign in to supported websites with accounts on Windows 10. Ported from the Chrome's Windows 10 Accounts extension.

What is Windows 10 Accounts Port?
Windows 10 Accounts Port is a Firefox add-on that streamlines the process of signing into supported websites using Windows 10 accounts. Plucked from the Chrome's Windows 10 Accounts extension, this add-on can serve a similar purpose in Firefox with a few additional configurations. To enable efficacious integration, Firefox users need to follow instructions involving the creation and execution of a specific file. However, as of Firefox 91, users can directly integrate with Windows SSO, hence rendering this extension unnecessary.
