Cannot recommend LastPass anymore Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I've been a LastPass user for more than 5 years and I am sad to see what it has become: a sluggish and buggy extension.
I cannot use version 4 because it is really buggy, and because its interface is terrible, specially if compared with version 3.
Version 3, which was more stable than version 4, is increasingly getting buggy and slow, which makes me wonder what the hell are the developers doing.
Basic functions, like the auto-fill and updating saved passwords no longer works properly for SEVERAL websites, which forces me to use the manual copy/fill of passwords daily. A quick look at their forums show that I am not alone about these issues.
Also, after switching to another password manager Firefox opens and deals with tabs A LOT faster.
I used to recommend LastPass to friends and coworkers. Well, no more!
Can't save new passwords anymore Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This addon gets worse and worse.
The "auto-generate and save new password" feature has never worked. I have to generate a password, copy and paste it into the browser, then save the login info.
If you save info while you're creating a new account, it will not work 99% of the time. Instead, you have to create your account, then log out, log back in, and then save it when you log in.
The notification bar has stopped working a few months ago; I can no longer save new sites this way.
Now, when I enter new login details, the icon turns green, but when I click it, the menu spazzes out and makes the browser unusable.
Performance Issues Rated 3 out of 5 stars
In about:performance, LastPass is almost always at the top of the list for me.
Huge memory hog Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Whilst i like the Lastpass service and bought premium years back I'm going to have to stop using it if the memory use in Firefox Isn't fixed. My memory use with no tabs open doubles just by adding Lastpass
Issues with Firefox Dev and ESR Editions Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Firefox Dev or ESR (extended support release) is required for my work and LastPass does not work properly for either.
LastPass caused Firefox Dev to have significant delays. With LastPass enabled, refreshing a page or pulling down a dropdown box took 5-10 seconds to appear. If I disable LastPass, it is instantaneous. I was also constantly hit with "could not connect to server" and timeout error messages even though it appeared to be working correctly. The notifications became disruptive to my work and could not be disabled.
So instead I installed the ESR version. With this version, LastPass does not remember my username or password and logs itself out multiple times throughout the day. No matter how many times I enter my username and password, remember options checked or unchecked, it will log itself out. Clearing the cache and any troubleshooting I've tried has not helped this.
I still use LastPass at home (with the regular Firefox addition), and with Chrome without issue. It is a disappointment it doesn't work for Firefox Dev/ESR as I have to use this for work and this is when LastPass would be most helpful.

Do NOT Install... I'm Serious; Run Away Rated 1 out of 5 stars
After installing the extension and letting it try to go through automatically change existing passwords (which consists of the app logging into your account and trying to change the password as a human would. It's a very creepy experience to watch an algorithm work its way through your accounts on various websites) for hours on end and failing at most of them, I had to go through changing them myself. Another thing to note is that if you select to automatically change passwords, it actually won't tell you what it's changed it to. You have to manually go into the website and look for them.
Then, in my efforts to save myself the further effort of renewing account passwords that I've changed on PC on my iPhone, I decided to install the iOS app and get my passwords from there.
However the app simply refused to log me in and kept giving me an inexplicable "unknown email" error, despite it being a very simple 6 letter address and me making sure that it was the same one I created the aaccount with. In the end I read in their forums that someone was able to log in by creating a new account. So I gave that a try on my iPhone. To my surprise it had no misgivings about creating another account with the same email address. So I thought "oh ok, I guess it's adding the phone into me original account now".
I was not able to see any of my existing passwords in iOS, so I thought perhaps it saves a different set of passwords for each device and hadn't thought much on it.
After further efforts to use the extension on my PC and realising that it's actually not good (it only works on some sites and it can really muck things up when trying to manually change passwords), I've decided to give another extension a try.
I uninstalled this extension and set about getting that in order when I decided to import the passwords from LastPass into the new one. So I logged into the websites. Lo and behold! Turns out this time it logged into the account I created from the iPhone and none of my PC passwords were there! Dozens of passwords lost because of a stupid and inexplicable app error and the website's incapability of not creating two accounts with the same email!
In the end; its performance is lacklustre, its too complicated for most users and is ridilled with unbelievably stupid errors.
DO NOT EVEN TRY THIS.
Edit: Oh and it really slows down Firefox. I'm not talking about connection times, but freezes and unresponsiveness.
Works well, VERY useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I now have different random passwords for every different website, and LastPass remembers them for me across browsers and between my PC, laptop and phone.
Would be nice if it worked Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Found 1 or 2 sites it works on. Waste of time.
Very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I use multiple browsers, and coordinating my saved passwords between them all was formerly a pain, but LastPass makes this much easier and its encryption gives me confidence that my credentials are secure.
Last pass add-on 3.3.2 on FF 50.1 Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I thought it's just dev omitted the fact that it supposed to be free on all devices. I've reinstalled the add on and it's still expired. I know it's not a priority to develop ff add-on, but Please clarify that...
Oh, how is it the FF is trying to block the add-on?

Blank Screens Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This application used to work like a charm but has become less and less reliable with every new release. With the previous version I already had problems providing my login information (blank input screen, typewriter showing then disappearing). I upgraded to the latest version and was hoping that these problems would be fixed, instead they became worse. When I click the icon in the FF task-bar the menu that appears is blank, I cannot access my vault. The only solution is to quit FF and restart. This is unacceptable. I will give it a few more weeks but will then switch to another application. Similar comments from paying customers for the mobile application have also increased in frequency. Does someone test this app before releasing it??

Release 3.3.2 is XUL/Overlay, Dev Channel 4.1.32a is SDK, need WebExtensions Rated 1 out of 5 stars
The Release version 3.3.2 is based on the XUL/Overlay API, with XPCOM binary files, which is deprecated, and being removed in a year or less.
The Development Channel version 4.1.32a is based on the SDK (with a few binary files, but mostly converted to JS), which is also deprecated and being removed at the same time as XUL.
If this company wishes to support LastPass on Firefox, they MUST convert to WebExtensions. If the WebExtensions API doesn't have the necessary hooks or functionality, then the LastPass developers MUST communicate with Mozilla, by asking on http://discourse.mozilla-community.org/ or filing bugs at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ or both. If they are serious about supporting Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari, Opera, or just about any serious browser on any serious platform, then they MUST convert to WebExtensions, because all the vendors have decided to focus on a common API, to reduce the cost of cross-platform development.
They are doing this specifically to benefit companies such as yours which develop complex and popular add-ons, and as such your word will carry weight when you request access to certain features in the API. Time to show some leadership skills and get things done.
And also, if you want any user to take you seriously or give you money for services, do whatever you need to do to fix your code and get it to pass review at AMO. You simply MUST NOT let it sit in "unreviewed" limbo or on dev channel. When users complain about the add-on causing system slow-downs, you MUST address these issues.
I used to use LastPass, but no longer. If LastPass wishes to remain in business, they MUST take appropriate ACTION. NOW.
Was good. Now bad Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Works when Firefox first opens but since recent Mozilla update, after a minute or two the add-on stops working. Please update the software... as a premium user, this is unimpressive...
Fairly good product, insanely bad maintenance and support Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I've been using LastPass for a few months, I have a paid subscription. The concept and the way it should work are very useful. The basic functionality works great, it works with logins, forms and secure notes. Encryption is done client side so, at least it appears, it's quite secure. It warns you if the password field is insecure on a website. It also warns you if you try to enter your LastPass master password in a field on any website other than theirs.
Fingerprint logon works well (paid version only). I didn't try any of the other two-factor auth (they have a few services including Google Authenticator (SMS), YubiKey (USB device) and Sesame).
It imports saved logins from browsers and even saved Wi-Fis and does a good job. It auto-sorts most logins in theme folders (mail, shopping, education etc.)
A great feature - you can share any logins with other users. This is secure, but there a little misleading feature: you can either allow or disallow the other users to see the actual passwords. This is meaningless because if you do share a login the password is sniffable by the trusted user regardless of whether you choose to allow or deny.
Another nifty feature - for a few select websites it can change your password automatically (no user input at all).
It is at least dubious that they haven't updated their add-on in the Mozilla site. You can download the latest version from their website, but:
- the interface is glitchy, doesn't "fit" in their dialog boxes, and menu organization is actually worse than in the older version
- the auto-login feature is very unreliable (around 50% chance to actually work on a given website0
- they advertise "family folders" with the paid version; once you pay you realize you only can create ONE family folder, and in spite of the name ("family") you can only create more if you get the "enterprise" version (not a big deal, but literally false advertising)
- the pop-up that inserts login data into forms can take anywhere from 5 to FORTY-FIVE seconds to load
- they advertise a Firefox Mobile extension with the paid version as well, but that doesn't work
- they advertise "priority" tech support for the paid version, however the ticket system is slow (three, four days to get a reply) and it's completely unhelpful
- they have a support forum, but it's moderated and when I tried to post my post was never allowed through
Version 4.0 hasn't landed in AMO for a whole year Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I love LastPass as a service, I use it every day on multiple platforms. But it looks like LastPass doesn't love Firefox. While they do provide a 4.x version of this add-on via their website, this extension hasn't gotten the 4.0 update for nearly a year.
While Firefox is introducing e10s and pushing for WebExtensions, LastPass is lagging behind and are letting their Firefox users down. I'm a paying customer and I've been in touch with LastPass' support multiple times, but to no avail. All I've been able to father is that "they're working on it". Well, I can only hope they really are, because a 1 year delay is just astonishing...
Lastpass development on Firefox stagnanting? Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Extension 4.1.32a seems to have gotten worse rather than better. New GUI has excessive whitespace especially on Preferences screen. Looks like font is zoomed in and window is non resizable. Means that you have to constantly scroll up and down.
Extension also login issue with websites where check boxes to prevent 1 being logged in have to remain unchecked. It fails to uncheck the box even though 3.3.2 has no such issue with sites. Lastpass was told of this issue months ago and still not fixed.
If you install the current 4.1.32 directly from Lastpass then the extension fills in fields better but its pulldown boxes are horribly slow to appear.
Seems development for Firefox is stalled.
