The best free add-on in the universe Rated 5 out of 5 stars
If you like tinkering, the amount of customization you can do is insane. I'm not a programmer but I am a smart user with common sense and decent windows skills. My windows skills are as a power user of anything internet (not a ms office guy). So I bought some Digital Currency a couple of years ago and realized that the old game plan had to go.
I have been online since the day AOL launched and have signed up for everything from internet banking to 50 different forums. I have been managing 25 years of passwords in my head, of course by using same everywhere or a variation. It was starting to make me insane as is, but when Digital Currency entered my life I realized I had to make changes of my new B T C would soon no longer be mine.
The sheer number of passwords I would need to do something about could either take the route of 1. just change the monetary, major social, and medical over and not worry about the other billion sites, OR 2. bite the bullet and do them all.
I should note that I am the guy in the picture next to the definition of obsessive disorder. I am the guy that would get the assignment for a major paper in College that was due EOS, 3 months out, and after a night of no sleep thinking about it I would start it the next day. But oh, no, it did not end there. I would stay awake for up to 96 hours, whatever was needed for that assignment, until it was finished. I could not stop and eat, sleep, whatever. I would get very dry and stand up to go buy a bottle of water and realize I could not support my weight because my legs were seized in place due to 36 hours of literally not moving out of what was always a wood/metal chair.
If I move from city to city, which I have had to do a few times in 30 years, when I get to destination city I will not only have to unpack every box and set up, but I would again not eat sleep, do anything until it was done. Done was defined by beds made, groceries purchased, all laundry done, any painting or mods
I am sure you guessed by now that I chose to do ALL 25 years of passwords. BTW, this compulsion I describe comes with stress and dread of anticipation because I know I won't stop. So, all depressed, but determined I began the process. As usual, I am so deep in an anxious state of panic that I literally have physical symptoms manifest as chest pain, elevated pulse, elevated BP etc.
Making this worse is the fact that I am of THE generation that did not mandate typing in school so we did not take it, yet we were the "founders" in the internet generation. I hunt and peck. I hunt and peck faster than 90% of all typists but IT IS AWFUL AND PONDEROUS!! It is physically demanding to hunt and peck. Honestly though, my graduation class could probably prove class action damages in not training us to type.
Also, remember I am not a programmer, just an educated businessman who ignored that training and now make a living online. I was worried about the program!
So, I began ---
Hm - this is easy!
2 Hours later I'm done.
At 3 Hours in I had customized thru a dozen Plug-ins.
At 3.5 hours I had it all color coded AND my auto type parameters for ALL of my sites had been programmed to take every key stroke, tab, and enter into account for all that sites needs. i.e. If a site called for tab, enter username, tab, enter PW, hit enter (whatever) to be fully logged in, I had done that customization.
IT IS THE SIMPLEST THING I HAVE EVER STRESSED ABOUT!!
To those on the edge. Step inside. It feels so safe in here!!
So far so good Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It's too bad that this add-on got so many undeserved bad ratings just because people haven't understood how it works.
Let me make something clear first. This add-on alone is not in itself a password manager. It just connects to KeePass, which is a well-established open-source password manager, so that you don't have to alt-tab to KeePass every time you need to retrieve usernames and passwords.
Tip for newcomers: before configuring Passifox, you need to download KeePassHttp first. Direct link here: https://raw.github.com/pfn/keepasshttp/master/KeePassHttp.plgx Link to web page here: https://github.com/pfn/keepasshttp/
KeePassHttp is a plugin for KeePass 2.x and provides a secure means of exposing KeePass entries via HTTP for PassIFox to consume. You need to save it into the KeePass folder and then restart KeePass.
It's only fair to say that this add-on has one major competitor: KeeFox. Although I haven't used KeeFox, Mozilla reports it's got 5 times as many users and countless as many reviews.
And I've been using Passifox successfully for about a year with Firefox versions 36 through 38 on Windows 7 at home and Vista at work.
What doesn't work is the advertised automated password form fill. In my experience, to get the field filled I have to right-click the username field and select "Fill User and Pass", but that is no big deal for me.
Thank you! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Just wanted to say THANK YOU for keeping this aliveThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124-signed).
Waste of memory Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This plugin can be installed, connected and does absolutely nothing after that. Chrome extension working without problems.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed).
Keeps bugging you if Keepass is not running Rated 2 out of 5 stars
It works, more or less, but if you don't need it during a browsing section, and don't keep Keepass open at all times, it keeps displaying an annoying "KeePassHttp is not running" message in Firefox. There is no option to turn this warning off. All you can do is close it each time it appears, or leave it there, taking up space in your browser window. It is needlessly intrusive.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed).
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Nice add on. I didn't see in your instructions where I needed to check the box in Firefox to "remember passwords" but once I did I could see where it works fine. Due to all of the new, various type web pages many times I still need to right click but things seem to work more smoothly with PassIFox installed. Plus it reminds me now if I need to save a new password. Good work!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed).
Works great Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Intuitive. It is the only addon that worked on firefox for me. It works great on firefox as it did on chrome.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11-signed).
Rough Alternative to KeeFox. No multi-database support. BREAKS Firefox Sync and KeeFox. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I wish I could say more positive about this addon, but it's really bare-bones. Maybe that's a plus for someone out there.
Edit: One more complaint. Having this installed disables the internal Firefox password manager, which apparently interferes with not only Firefox's built-in sync feature, but also KeeFox's ability to save the authorization key across restarts of Firefox. So if you intend to use KeeFox or Firefox Sync, uninstall this add-on.
Work as expected Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very well integration in Firefox 31. Loading & filling my passwords only when I ask him to. Nice job.
@Orolo : To install the KeePassHttp.plgx plugins, you must copy the .plgx file in the KeePass plugins directory (aka : C:\Program Files (x86)\KeePass Password Safe 2\Plugins)
Doesn't work. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Installed the addon and one time it asked to connect to keepass. It appeared to be working fine.
Restarted my computer and PassIFox doesn't do anything at all anymore. Reinstalled the extension, firefox, KeepassHTTP, nothing works.
Have to go back to Chrome now.
Doesent work with keepassx Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I don't want to use programs like mono or wine...
Keepass only supports only Windows, keepassx supports windows, max and linux
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Forget my last post. It works like a charm. Somehow the "remember passwords" checkbox was unchecked in my Firefox settings. This is the best KeePass add-on for Firefox!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168-signed). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Does not work in Windows 8. After following the unnecessarily complex installation instructions, installing first one file from github, and then when that did not work, another file from github, no window appeared asking for login information.
Bottom line, 15 minutes of reading poorly written instructions, followed by another 15 minutes of wrestling with this software only to find out that it doesn't work at all.
I Love It!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I tried other addons and KeePass browser integration methods but they were not as smooth and took up lots of screen real estate.
One question. What is the keyboard shortcut to fill the username and password???
PassiFox is great but ... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
on some some sites like twitter it doesn't detect the login forms. Even KeeFox does not detect the twitter login forms.
Please fix it!
The only Plugin that works on Linux and Windows Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is the only PlugIn that works on both plattforms, Linux and Windows, on Windows ill stick with Keefox but on Linux this is the only PlugIn that works with no flaws at all and I'm only on Linux.)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124-signed).
not working at firefox 24b1 Rated 3 out of 5 stars
not working at firefox 24b1, plaeae updateThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Really really bad Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Icon doesn't show up on navigation bar and it completely destroys configuration of X-Notifier - useless crap...would be 0 stars if I could. Dev doesn't seem to be interested in further developing.
Addon works perfect in Google Chrome though.
Works perfectly on FF 13 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I give this one 5 star coz it's awesome. Works perfectly with Keepass v2.19 I just installed after recovering my system 2day ago.
I wonder why some say it doesn't work, and as a result give this awesome addon bad rating. It works great! You only have to follow the small rigorous steps outline by the developer to get things working fine.
I use this as well as the sister, Chrome version, and both work just too well using the same Keepass database!
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 (188.8.131.52-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.
