  • Entering @@ and, pressing backspace to delete the password field and reentering @@ struggles the extension a bit. But beside of this it works nice!
  • Really hoping for a 4.0 compatible version now that it's out of beta. If you have found yourself unable to use PwdHash you can always go to the official website PwdHash.com to re-generate them.

    You can also get Hashed for iOS which is a PwdHash.com companion for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. http://j.mp/itunes_hashed
  • suddenly incompatible. Help! quite a few pages have passwords generated. No idea how to access them.
  • @linopolus: The extension is the source. Download the .XPI and unpack it with any Zip 2.0-compatible archiver. Presto change-o, source.

    It's still using MD5, though. I'd look for a hasher that implements SHA1 or (better yet) SHA512. Just in case.
  • This one's got a pretty severe bug in my FF 3.6.10: Whenever I want to save my login data after logging in for the first time with @@, Firefox will store @@ABCDEFGH instead. Naturally this wont work the next time I visit the login site.
  • i like this addon, but maybe it is an idea to build in a feature where the password box lights up yellow when you click F2. Like it does in google chrome pwdhash addon.
  • It's security relevant so I want to review the source. There can I find it?

    I'm using the website for a few weeks and it's awesome. Now I want to use the addon but I won't before I looked into the source like I did with the website.
  • @r3df0x if you want different passwords for other accounts, e.g. use your account name as part of the password: myname:somepassword -- although this could make the password a bit large...

    as for this addon, so far good.
  • Out of all the password creators I do like this one, my only complaint would be that I wish it would include the user id/username along with the site and password used when hashing the password. I use gmail and I have more than one email account. So I would like to have different passwords for each account
  • awesome idea but could do with a icon on status bar to enable and disable
    as using e.g google docs i can't use F2 any more :(

    but othe then that awesome
  • Great addon! There is a new Version 1.7 which also works with Firefox 3.5. You can download ist here:

  • Version 1.5 of PwdHash is outdated. There's a newer version 1.6 on http://crypto.stanford.edu/PwdHash/#download but unfortunately it's still not made for Firefox 3.5...
  • This is the best addon for anyone who wants to keep their passwords safe online.

    Hopefully a Firefox 3.5 version will be released soon, because I really can't live without it!
  • A addon i almost can't live without.
  • Great plugin, saves you from remembering hundreds of pwds or using the same on every site. I'm using it for many months now, highly recommended!
  • I've used this add-on for a year now and love it's usefulness, however MD5 is a weak hash. Any chnace that will change to SHA-1 or MD-6 ? :D

    The PWDHash site also uses an MD5 hash to sign the cert. btw...
  • For those who are using Songbird as your media player of choice, I have ported PwdHash to Songbird. It is a naive port with just enough changes to get it to install. There will be bugs but basic functionality is there. Let's hope the authors update PwdHash to provide full compatibility.

  • If you don't want your passwords to be visible at the content providers site this addon is for you.

    Easy, simple, works good.
  • I've been using this plugin since 2007 - and it works perfectly.

    I normally use the enter masterpassword +F2 function as the password visually gets 2 char longer

    Tip for Beta users;

    bypass the security check by adding the preference extensions.checkUpdateSecurity and setting it to false (though not recommended for casual users).

    type about:config in the address bar and press Enter
    1. Right-click -> New -> Boolean
    2. Name: extensions.checkUpdateSecurity
    3. Value: false '

    Restart browser and install plugin
