Perhaps one of the most clumsy and untenable add-ons that I have ever had the misfortune to add to my Firefox. I am tempted to ditch the entire browser and go to Chrome, as the add-on unmasks the numerous kluges and failures that this dreadful app uncovers. I recommend using Excel and randomizing a ten-letter ASCII code using random(). The results are far less pathetic.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Aaron, 4 years agoLove the idea of generating passwords on-the-fly and would love to see this feature built into Firefox's password manager. I docked off one star because this extension's profile management is onerous. Creating/modifying profiles is a chore because I have to manually sync my profiles across devices; and I've tried the extension's sync to no avail. This is why I wish Firefox included a password generator, which would handle profiles far more efficiently. Still get a lot of use out of this extension so I appreciate the author's efforts!
- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 12623474, 4 years agoUnusable on GNU/Linux Ubuntu 18.04, FF 61.0.2 (64 bit): the addon window won't stay open, it will collapse before even typing a single letter inside it.
The support site does not seem to work either (404, page not found).
Thank you for the effort, but the code needs a thorough rework.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Kerman, 4 years agoReasonable port but missing two key features for someone using the original extensively. First is the ability to group and organise profiles, second is the ability to have notes for each profile.
Once both are available and part of the import process I'll be able to migrate. With the localStorage issue as well of course.
Otherwise the functionality is there and the spartian looking interface isn't a problem. Glad to see the day I can't keep the original alive anymore I'll have something to move to.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Darren Chaker, 4 years agoBy Darren Chaker - PasswordMaker Pro provides all of the hallmarks of a great add-on for Firefox. The passwords are secure using a cryptographic hash algorithm, can be set to provide different characters as well as length to thwart brute force attacks, and are user friendly. In sum, if you pick PasswordMaker Pro, you have made the right choice!
- Rated 4 out of 5by Firefox user 14264300, 5 years agoThis port is very similar to previous versions and works well, except that "Copy button" no longer copies the password to my clipboard anymore. I have to remember to highlight the password and CTRL+c.
This is on Firefox 61.0 and linux.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Robert Noyce, 5 years agoI've been a Passwordmaker user since 2008 when Jung did the original code, and this port works fairly close to the original. The main benefit is that password generation are all local, and all that's transported are the options, which set the custom parameters for each website, and the option rdf file ports between Chrome and Firefox easily, or it can also be cut and pasted into a form, if in the future the rdf import doesn't work. It couldn't be better.
This works very well for any combination or requirement by various websites and servers, including those that force periodic updates. Passwords can vary in length by website and application, some can take hundreds, others just 8, with various character limitations or requirements. This can do it all, and not being server based, never goes down. I simply take a copy of the rdf file from the cloud should my device lose the options file.
There are other ports of this code for Android by other developers, but you have to custom input the options as the rdf will not import to those Android ports, as of this review.
- Rated 4 out of 5by DJAC Productions, 6 years agoIt replaces well the old PasswordMaker addon from Eric H. Jung that doesn't work anymore with the new Firefox Quantum. This add-on miss a "Fill this field " in the context mouse menu. I hope it will be added in a near Future.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 13352012, 6 years agoThe only issue i ran into, is when i did an import with multiple portfolios, it set the default hash to MD5 instead of the one that i was using. Once i corrected that, everything seems to be good.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 6455915, 6 years agoI've been using another PasswordMaker add-on in FF for years. It hasn't been updated in a while and always had issues. I use this version in Chrome and it's much simpler. I'm very happy that someone ported this to FF.
