Not very user-friendly Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I tried it, but did not see any usage improvement in comparison with a plain KeePass + Firefox password database combo... Caveat: after installing the add-on, you could have the unpleasant impression that it erased your entire Firefox password database, but in fact it didn't (sigh)... :-) Maybe this risky step could be a bit more explicit in the HOWTO section of this add-on. Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124-signed).
The purpose is to store all your passwords in keepass and have it portable across browsers and computers.
If you like storing your passwords in firefox, there isn't really any reason to be using this extension.
Changed back to KeeFox Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I tried this because someone reviewed this to be better than Keefox.
But alas, for me, KeeFox is much better. Maybe the http-thingy is very good, but the User interface and recognition of url's is worse.
I wonder if PassIFox can even recognize multiple URLs or add URLs or even fill in logins automatically after recognition.
I can't point it out more precisely or what else I am missing, but KeeFox is still my winner.

Very good Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Surely better then keefoxThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed).
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Melhor que o KeeFox. O PassiFox foi muito simples de configurar e funcionou de primeira, enquanto que o KeeFox nunca funcionou direito em anos...
Better than KeeFox. PassiFox was easy to configure and worked immediately, while KeeFox never worked properly in a long time I tried it.
Works in FF 7.0.1 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Works like a charm with FF 7.0.1
5 stars if form could auto-complete like with Chrome :)
No notification bar for me, but a right click on the login field makes it.
Stopped Working! Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Did work pretty good for awhile... idk why it stopped working in both Firefox and Chrome all I know is it did. I don't feel like trying to figure out why. Uninstall. I give it three stars now because like so many other services on the net, it was good while it lastedThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
I guess you don't care about getting it working... that's too bad.
Great for use on Linux Rated 5 out of 5 stars
KeePass works great on Windows with Firefox and KeeFox, but this integration is not available for Linux. Luckily we can use this plugin, and it does work! (even if it may seem a bit complicated at first). I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 and it installed without any error or other problems. In case this is helpful for others:
1. Install KeePass (add repository: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:jtaylor/keepass, install via Synaptic, dependency on Mono)
2. Install Passifox Plugin
3. Enable password management in Firefox (will be delegated to KeePassHttp).
4. Install KeePassHttp, by dropping KeePassHttp.plgx in the KeePass dir, /usr/lib/keepass2 (this just worked out of the box, I just (re)started KeePass and it found the plugin)
5. Login to KeePass and verify KeePassHttp is installed in (Tools > Plugins)
6. Visit a webpage and click KeePassHttp's 'Connect' button, give the KeePass connection that popped up a name and save.
7. It should be working. Visit a page with a password and it will ask you to authenticate the connection.
The user experience is not as great as with KeeFox on Windows, here's why:
* Once I connect KeePass with Firefox via the plugin, I would expect it to just use the password database, since I've already loaded it. Doing without the authentication requests (I missed them at first) would be great. But I just installed the plugin, maybe this was a once-time thing.
* In many cases I have several logins for the same site, and - on Windows - I have already named all my passwords like "domain.com - username". It seems because of the dash, Passifox is not always able to load the passwords. In another case it filled in the 'wrong' username/password, i.e., I had left the KeePass url field empty for that entry, so when using KeeFox, it loads the other username/password pair.
--> It would be great if Passifox could use the KeePass URL field for its matching patterns!
But all in all, great plugin!
Works perfectly (Firefox 5.0) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Works perfectly after following the instructions and installing KeePassHttp first. Make sure "Remember passwords for this site" is ticked in Options->Security in Firefox.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed).
One Awesome and Essential Add-On Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This add-on is fantastic! It is simple, seamless, and almost entirely transparent while using Firefox. All these things make it wonderful to use. I love using KeePass and this add-on makes it even better. I have used it for almost a month and performed the installation on two computer systems with no issues. The installation does require care (and I do suspect the bad reviews come from users that did not take enough care in the installation). Aside from the installation requiring some effort, the add-on works great and there is nothing that I can see to complain about aside from the fact that I do wish the installation was as simple as just clicking "Add to Firefox" (can't beat simplicity!). Honestly though, the installation was not hard and should NOT discourage anyone from using this great add-on. I give it 5 stars with no hesitation.
One important note for others. The "Connect" message will only pop up when you restart Firefox once everything is placed correctly. At least this is what I did and it popped up immediately. So keep that in mind if you have problems seeing it.
Read the docs Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It's disappointing that no one bothers to read the extension description fully when setting it up :-/
1- enable password management in firefox (it gets delegated to passifox) tools -> options -> security -> remember passwords for sites
2- follow the directions for naming entry titles or the URL field, use of a domain name is preferred.
3- enjoy, many thousands of people are successfully using this extension on firefox and its sibling extension on chrome (chromeipass)
[n.b obligatory 5-star rating required to post this ;-)]
Correction to my below message Rated 2 out of 5 stars
This add-on actually works but the description on how it works provided by the author is not precise :-((
As I said below "Connect" message never appears for new sites containing passwords. I have to LOGIN and then LOGOUT manually to make the add-on to memorize the password. After that it seems to be working OK in automatic mode for that site.
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Keepass is great, and it works perfectly with Keeform (also in FF4.0.1).
This PassIFox add-on however did not work with me. The "Connect" button that is supposed to appear in the drop down notification (step 4. in the instructions), never shows up.
Don't waste your time and go straight here: http://keepass.info/plugins.html. Make sure to carefully read the installation instructions in the readme file and install the MozRepl extension as is explained.
Too bad, missed changed for PassIForm. It was an annoyance that I had to install everything all over after upgrading to FF4.0.1 and an even greater annoyance that this add-on does not work.
KeePass with Firefox integration done the right way Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Since I personally feel experienced in the field of IT security as much as I’m good in building spaceships I’ll have to pass blabbering about browser-KeePass bridge security aspect.
Let’s just cut to the point why I like this ext. from user-experience side:
* it works
* it’s really simple - no options dialogs so far
* it’s lightweight - a lot of value in small size
* less browser extension side code promises better compatibility with future Aurora/Minefield builds.
..I like playing with those, but every time an extension is broken I feel a bit broken inside also ;)
* It deserves a little more promotion here on AMO which it’s Chrome version is already receiving...
