Hi,
I used the "save password editor" pwd manager extension both in FF and in TB. As many of us know, this extension is now not compatible with FF, so I went back to FF built-in pwd manager feature.

The thing is frustrating since you need to open the menu-> options-Privacy& Security -> scroll down to forms& passwords and only then access to look for a specific pwd.

The problem is that -to add insult to injury- FF is not only inconvenient, but appears to be also insecure (see https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2018/0 ... -insecure/)

So, my question, is there any reliable, convenient password manager as the "save password editor" was?

Thanks

What about an external password manager, like LastPass or KeePass?

LastPass has not worked correctly for some updates. It refused to hold master past word when you sign out. You must re-enter you password everytime you close the browser. Mozilla blames Last password. Lastpass blames firefox.

I've sacrificed myself for you, going through LastPass, Dashlane and Keepass the past few years. I recommend Sticky PassWord, not one of the giant ones, but simpler to use. They have a forum for the free version at https://www.stickypassword.com/forum/vi ... .php?f=142
and another for the paid version. And they do answer emails, not with a form letter.

I used to use LastPass but after some issues, and some advice, I’m now using StickyPassword manager, which is great. Try that and see what many others are using. 8-)
Thanks
