- Rated 5 out of 5by Aaron, 5 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!
*UPDATE 2024-01-16*: Responding to the author, profile sorting and filtering is fine, and I confirmed syncing works. 5 stars
- Rated 5 out of 5by Robert Noyce, 6 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 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.
