Use KeePass As Your Firefox Password Manager

Posted April 2, 2010 3:32 am by with 2 comments

Both Firefox and KeePass are popular among PCMech readers, so it makes sense that the combination of these two would be a perfect match. So if you want to ditch the integrated Firefox password manager in favor of KeePass, give the KeeFox extension a try.

KeeFox is still in beta, but has a pretty nice feature list. There is a bit of configuration required and a small learning curve, but overall it is pretty simple to get up and running.

I gave this a shot, but at this point I prefer the integrated Firefox password manager. However, this extension may be for you so if you are a Firefox and KeePass, user give it a shot and sound off on what you think about it.

    Look nice. I once use this and it work good. However, now I don’t use this addon, just because I don’t want to much things to slow down Firefox speed.

    Well, I don't see the point of this extension.
    The author of Keefox is bragging about his working being open source…
    Yeah, right! Keefox is explicitly for KeePass 2 series which relies on the .NET software.
    Keefox is:
    1) Windows only (and according to the author, no plans of creating a version suitable for Linux.
    2) relying on proprietary software from Microsoft.

    This extension is absolutely vendor locked-in and should not be presented as open source.
