4.1 Stars out of 5
- by GWu, a year agoRated 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.
- by Firefox user 11391270, a year agoRated 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...
- by Firefox user 13884084, 2 years agoRated 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.
- by Firefox user 12791964, 3 years agoRated 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.
- by bernat, 4 years agoRated 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.
- by pp, 4 years agoRated 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...
- by Natanji, 5 years agoRated 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...
- by Firefox user 11326806, 5 years agoRated 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.
- by Firefox user 10562550, 6 years agoRated 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.
