- Rated 1 out of 5Update to my 5 star review 6 years ago: unfortunately this add-on seems to have been abandoned by its original maintainers, therefore a bug showing up in Firefox 66.0.2 and onwards renders it unusable.
I have created an alternative version: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/pwdhash2/
(on a sidenote: I'm also the author of the pull request for migrating this extension to WebExtension two years ago)
I've been using it for years now and it still serves me well! Unobtrusive and simple: just prefix with @@ or F2 and your password will be a hashed one specific for this site.
No more worries when a site leaks all of the unsalted passwords.
- Rated 1 out of 5Doesn't work anymore!
- Rated 1 out of 5Why has this been abandoned? This is such an important feature but all addons that go into this direction get abandoned. As if there was someone who does not want the we can use safe passwords...
- Rated 5 out of 5Ich benutze PwdHash seit vielen Jahren, als von Computerbild erstmals darüber berichtet worden war. Es erfordert keinen extra Passwort-Tresor um Passwörter im PC zu speichern.
- Rated 4 out of 5Very convenient
- Rated 4 out of 5I've used this addon since I discovered it and I could not live without it. However, it is not compatible with Firefox's new multiprocess engine. I would love an update to do so.
- Rated 5 out of 52016 still using since this was released, wish there were a few updates... :/
- Rated 5 out of 5It is a great add-on but unfortunately not compatible with Firefox 45.5.1 :-(
- Rated 4 out of 5So far so good
- Rated 4 out of 5Use it for everything. However, a lot of sites have requirements regarding length, use of symbols, etc. Need options.
- Rated 4 out of 5Thanks to this addon I've stopped using the same password for every site. It works very well on most sites.
I have only two problems with it:
- There's no visual indication that the hashed password is being sent.
- Subdomains like a.com.es and b.com.es generate the same password. These domains are equivalent to .co.uk domains but for Spain. There're more of these kind of subdomains that should be treated like different sites.
- Rated 4 out of 5in iceweasel 45.0a2 on debian 8 writing even one @ or pressing F2 immediately results in a segmentation fault. I really like this extension, and would like to use it on many platforms, I help to debug if I can...
- Rated 4 out of 5Please add an option to let us choose another key instead of F2.
- Rated 5 out of 5I am lost without this add-on. Please please update for Firefox 42!
- Rated 5 out of 5This extension is the best Firefox extension, except for uBlock Origin. It really needs support for Firefox 42.0!
- Rated 4 out of 5So Mozilla disabled this addon in FF 42, reminding me of how much I really don't like the game of "If I upgrade, I wonder which addons won't work any more?"
- Rated 3 out of 5Excellent addon, but it has been disabled with FireFox 42. Could somebody please update it to make it work with FF 42?
- Rated 5 out of 5Hi, I just updated to FF 42 and can't get this addon working anymore... it's really essential for me, so please update this addon as soon as you can. I really wonder why Mozilla specifically disabled it...
- Rated 5 out of 5Hi, this addon will not install to Firefox 42 and I even changed the max version in the install .rdf and couldn't get it to install. Please update! All my passwords are based on this addon.
- Rated 2 out of 5I can't recommend this, and I know the Stanford PwdHash library pretty well. This is a poor implementation. One major drawback is that there's no indication of whether or not the @@/F2 key sequence worked or not (it doesn't work on every site). So you're not sure if you're sending a hashed password or not.
- Rated 5 out of 5Great to keep different & secure passwords for each site. I've been using it for years now and can't live without :-)
- Rated 5 out of 5I'm shifting all of my passwords over to use this, and it usually works great. Even when password change forms confuse it, it isn't too hard to work around.
I too would like to see the yellow background to ensure that I don't plaintext my password to some untrusted site.
