browserpass-ce is better
Developer responseposted 2 years agoWe can't see any issues with the default dark theme that comes with Firefox. If you want, you can add an issue to our issue tracker describing your exact setup: https://github.com/passff/passff/issues
- by Firefox user 13836051, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5even if it "works" , it cannot handle most websites. You are very lucky if you find a site where this is working.
A lot of work and very little reward when using this. Just stick with built-in manager, itz much better.
as the developer himself says: "beta". not working here on Arch-Linux. First install is total FAIL. .py file gets truncated during install. tested in ff 59 and ff ESR. both are total FAIL. there should be more info how to debug this simple thing and working examples given, e.g. on which site it even works and where to put the weird stuff with the < and > or whatever. Has some potential though, since both KwalletCLI and GNOME-keyring both are rendered obsolete crap now in current FF v.58 so passFF could step into the fray.
---- hours later ----
OK, I got it to "work" after doing everything manually. I was almost done with programming my own webextension. The py app (called "native" thingy or whatever) install failed 100%
I had to correct the path in the JSON file . Then from add-on menu choose "debug passff" web-extension, see if debugger console shows errors. if need be set breakpoint with CTRL-B , a hidden function.
but even if it "works" - such as "Goto, Fill and Submit" works for website https://identity.kde.org/index.php?r=site/login - the normal ffox passwd manager is much more convenient. you have to enter each passwd manually into the addon, even type the passwd TWO times. what an ordeal. its easier to enter passwd everytime manually than to use this "tool". very, very beta. needs better explanation.
Maybe I'm gonna mod and fork this thing so it becomes useable. In those 4 hours I wasted on this thing, I could have typed thousands of bloody passwords.
- by Firefox user 13490766, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5This works awesom on linux. I have struggle bringing this to work on windows.
I manage to make pass work from normal cmd:
choco install msys2
msys2-bash: pacman -S pass
Created batch in c:\program files\pass\pass.bat and added c:\program files\pass to %PATH%:
set PATH=C:\Python36\Scripts\;C:\Python36\;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\WINDOWS\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files\gnupg\bin;C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\bin;C:\Users\simeon\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps;C:\tools\msys32\usr\bin;
C:\tools\msys32\usr\bin\bash.exe C:\tools\msys32\usr\bin\pass %*
And now I can use pass from a windows-cmd prompt normally. I also run install_host_app.bat successfully. But I cannot install this plugin. any help?
- by Firefox user 13239662, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5This plugin no longer works in Firefox 55 and appears to be scrapped entirely with the upcomming Firefox 57, which will remove the old add-on architecture.
The last update for this add-on was over 11 months ago and there's not much activity on the Github page. Sad, it looked like a nice idea.
Developer responseposted 3 years agoA new version of PassFF (compatible with current and upcoming versions of Firefox) has been in the pipeline for half a year now. But it's been stuck in the review queue of AMO. Like you, we are awaiting the release of our new and shiny version 1.0.0. Please note that, for technical reasons, there will be a Linux only version at first.
- by ArashM, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5Suddenly stopped working after updating to FF 47 (developers edition). The address bar icon is not being shown however I can open the preferences. Don't know what's wrong.
- by Duncan Burke, 6 years agoRated 5 out of 5For a long time, my password practices were atrocious; I reused the same password just about everywhere and didn't change them for years at a time. I knew that this was bad, but there was no good solution for firefox on linux. KeepassX had limited support, but it was rather disgusting both in the semantics of an overly complicated database and the dependency on Mono.
That changed with zx2c4 pass, the first password manager that is simple, secure (built on gpg) and built for unix systems. It doesn't require a big, ugly gui somewhere, access control is automatically delegated to the system gpg agent, which uses pinentry.
Of course, the usability of this is greatly reduced if you have to copy your passwords from a terminal, which is why this addon is so important. I imagine that most linux powerusers like myself use firefox, and finally we have a password manager integrated with firefox that doesn't completely suck.
I've been using this addon for about 6 months, and have migrated all my credentials to its store. I've watched it go through a number of upgrades; at first it was barely usable and often broke entirely to the point where I would give up and just paste from a terminal, but since the most recent upgrades, it has greatly improved in interface and stability to the point where it is a joy to use.
It's still not quite perfect: some websites call their their input elements by strange ids which breaks the autofill capability. You can add element names in the addon options, but those are global across all credentials; it would be nice to see support for per-credential element names. Also, matching on domain and url is still sometimes a bit wonky; ironically, trying to log into addons.mozilla.org grabs my firefox login credentials by default, I have to manually select the correct set.
In the scheme of things, the problems are minor for the great increase in usability this addon provides, which is why I rated this five stars. Also, based on the pace of development so far, I fully expect the user experience to improve in coming releases.
I don't expect this to have mainstream appeal, but if you use linux and aren't afraid of the terminal, this is the password manager for you. I believe this should also work on OS X and might even work on Windows with Cgwin, though I haven't tested either. Really, the limiting factor is the availability of the underlying program pass, which depends on the availability of bash, gpg and the usual system utilities.
Finally, I would like to add that it would be very nice to have an android version of this addon, though I am unfamiliar with android development and unsure of how feasible this is.
