KDE Wallet password integrationhttps://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... ntegratio/
This is by no means an essential add-on, but it is definitely useful if you want your passwords all stored in one secure location. Rather than having Firefox store your information, why not have KWallet do what it was designed to do? Konqueror and all other KDE applications can use KWallet by default. This extension adds that capability to Firefox

Rendundant yes, but probably integration (making kwallet password storage item available to other applications, such as the windows manager kdm ?
--if its kdm as the windows manager, then the kde.org website may be able to offer more help with any compatibility or integration issues. you can also check the developers forum or the developers edition/tools for such answers/help..http://kde.org/announcements/announce-4.8-rc1.php
KSecretService optionally enables a shared password storage, therefore making your saved passwords available to many other applicatios, leading to a more secure system and better integration of non-KDE apps into the Plasma Workspaces and KDE apps into non-Plasma workspaces.
