Good article,

I also use foxmarks to keep my boxes’ passwords (safely, i hope) synchronized, as well as my bookmarks. I’ll give some of these recommendations a try, tough.

I have been using Roboform but I am thinking about switching to Sticky Password. Have anyone heard of these guys? They seem pretty nice.

Mmmm yummy:
GRC Ultra High Security Password Generator

If you are looking for a good way to generate a unique, random password (alphanumeric, hex, or all printable characters), GRC is by far the easiest way to go, just open, cut, and paste. Plus, you also eliminate the possibility of a keylogger ever capturing your password (as long as you continue to only cut and paste it).

Maybe one should consider putting so much trust in mozilla.org’s servers, and more than that trust all these firefox addons. This article just skims the surface on how easy it is to obfuscate malicious code in jar files, and firefox addons in general. So now lets involve something as important as passwords with this so very secure trusted third party, and also mozilla.org’s server storing all these addons. I mean nobody would attack something as unpopular as mozilla.org, right? Not.

concerned:

it is time to start to concerrn about your knowledge on firefox password scheme. Firefox does not store user passwords on its servers rather it stores on users’ computers.

Right? Yes;-)

Thanx for the list…
Another cool password addon better than unhide passwords is Show Password. You might want to include it in your list.

LastPass is the one I use.
FF passwords are NOT safe anymore.

Reformat and re-install your OS? Add the lastpass plugin back into FF and login with your identity email address and “Master Password” and your passwords are there for all the sites you saved.
Got a WinTendo machine at work? Add the lastpass plugin in FF, login with your identity email address and “Master Password” and your passwords are there.
There are NOT sent in the clear and NOT stored on the Lastpass server.

Great plugin.
