Description Michael Catanzaro 2020-02-10 09:40:00 PST
If python3-secretstorage is not installed, webkit-patch will use a custom encrypted file for password storage instead of utilizing the system keyring. This means unnecessary password prompts to unlock the custom encrypted key storage.

There is no benefit to using custom key storage over the system keyring.

Not sure why this wasn't picked up, the current behaviour is irritating. informal r+ from me!
