Thanks Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Absolute must have plugin. This plugin is holding me back from using FF3.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.4).
Perfect! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Both the issues from my previous review have been resolved. The addon is nearly perfect (could use import/export options), and I use it literally every day.
Also, Taiyoko, the latest version supports 3.5 but hasn't been approved. It can be found here: http://wijjo.com/PasswordHasherInstall

This add-on is invaluable for anyone who does a significant amount of "business" online. It helps insure that a stolen password will not result in a costly identity theft. It also negates most of the risk of falling for a phishing scam by guessing site tags.
I do have a couple of caveats, though. The add-on does not remember if you click the "No special characters" option. While that may be for security reasons, it can lead to a lot of frustration. Also, this add-on is not yet compatible with Firefox 3.
Very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really hope this become integrated in the new version of Firefox. That statement in a nutshell, shows how important this extension has become to me. BRAVO to the author !!!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.4).
awesome tool Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I am paranoid of using the same password at every site because you just never know what little kid system admin at a blogging site or forum might do with your password. I can't remember 30+ unique passwords, and I don't want to write them down, that is a huge problem as well. I actually used to hash my passwords in my head using a little math and the url, but too many sites had wierd restrictions on passwords, I could never come up with a good way of managing them all.
But this tool solves that problem. Remember a single password and it will generate all your other passwords for you. Even if a site has odd restrictions, such as no special characters, you can tell Password Hasher not to use special characters. You can even dictate the length of the generated password for sites with length requirements. Password hasher actually stores your site preferences (special characters, length, use numbers, etc) in the firefox password manager. So the only thing you have to remember is ONE password, no matter where you go.
I haven't tried it, but I imagine the password sync tool offered by Google could probably replicate all the password site preferences to all your Firefox browsers.
This tool appears to use a SHA1 hash plus some custom code to ensure passwords meet specified restrictions. Yeah, I know SHA1 has been 'cracked', but who really cares? It's still more than good enough to generate website passwords.
Technically, SHA1 is still pretty solid, and if you care enough about security to use this tool, you're already in the top .00001% of all internet users. Any hacker would skip trying to attack you and go for all accounts out there whose password matches their user name.
This tool also offers the ability to save an HTML page to a USB key, so just in case you are ever on a computer without this add-on, you just need to bring up the HTML file and type everything, then you can cut and paste your password manually.
A Great Browsing Security Tool Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This excellent tool lets you use a single password at your end but achieve the safety of generating a unique and robust password at each site. While you continue typing the same password at each site you visit that requires one, Password Hash converts that one familiar string on the fly into a series of safe and unique passwords - one for each site. And you never have to learn the special coding to benefit from its protection.
