- by krims0n32, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5Works perfectly. Only quirk I have is that the popup is as wide as the username input box, which in my case is a tad too small (I have password entries with 3 or 4 directories).
- by Firefox user 12820501, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Having had the unpleasant experience of switching to FireFox from Chromium recently, I'm less keen on using password managers built-in to the browser.
That said, although I've wanted to use the 'pass' password manager for some time, I *needed* it to work in the browser. If I couldn't get this to work, then I'd probably end up ditching pass and go looking for something else.
However, to my delight, It Just Worked (tm). I'd spent half an hour configuring and setting up pass, and in comparison the setup for PassFF was really simple - and it worked first time!
A fantastic job!
- by Firefox user 13939444, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5Well, I hate to confirm the naysayers, but this addon Just Doesn't Work™. I have pass installed and working just fine, I followed the installation instructions to the letter, but the script to install the host app appears to do nothing and the "Troubleshooting" section of the instructions doesn't list the error the addon is giving me ("Connection to the host app failed or returned an unexpected result! Make sure you have the latest version of the PassFF host app installed by following the official installation instructions." - which is exactly what I did, and I'm still getting the error.)
It's been a pleasant couple of hours thinking that this would actually work with my copy of firefox, but I'm uninstalling and getting on with my life now.

- by Firefox user 14276470, 4 years agoRated 1 out of 5Seldom have I found any firefox app so difficult to fully install, configure and use. Make that NEVER. Use of github utils. should always signal a yellow alert for severe mal-use of English, but the lack of clear documentation for the use of gpg, kgpg, qtpass, zx2c4 (how does one even SPELL that???) and only then, passff makes this daunting, even for one with 12 years of linux experience and a masters degree in comp. sci. like I have.
Using password protected .odt file stored on a thumb drive to hold site logins and passwords is just as effective and much simpler. Makes this extension unnecessary, too.
Developer responseposted 4 years agoIn fact, PassFF is an extension for users of the password manager called "pass" written by Jason A. Donenfeld of zx2c4.com. If you don't know this password manager or don't know how to set it up, this extension won't be of any help for you, I'm afraid.
It's beyond the scope of this extension to introduce new users to the dis-/advantages and to the usage of "pass".
