Thread: New firefox issue?

    You should never store your passwords in a browser. I have written a way to use passwords at my forum here: https://techcomputerforum.com/viewto...&t=504&p=13388

    If you have any questions, ask.

    As far as resetting of your passwords all in one go, I'm afraid your SOL.

    BTW, Lastpass stores your passwords in the "cloud" which was hacked not once but twice. Never, EVER trust the "cloud."

    It opened straight away and played on full screen and no buffering, I've been watching a few series on my old site but it I must say it is much better with Netflix and Chrome and up to date as well.
    As a test, I've just tried several different TV programmes on Netflix through FireFox 57.0 (full-screen) with no problems. Must be your settings that were blocking it.

    True, but old news. In both cases only encrypted data was accessible. Whilst it does use the cloud for storage, unlike many password managers your data is encoded locally using 256-bit AES encryption before being sent to the online server. For an update on LastPass and why it's still considered to be the best, see: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/secure-...ager-compared/.

    With regards to your link, I use KeePass offline for personal info storage and like it a lot. The problem is that whilst KeePass itself is very good, by using the browser plugins or mobile apps, you're exposing your data to another potential security weakness.

    The addon is just to interact with the physical Keepass database on your computer. It's not like Laspass, and your link proves just how flawed Lastpass is, besides being hacked. Never EVER trust the cloud.

    But the fact remains that all the hackers got access to was AES-encrypted data. With LastPass, no unencrypted data or passwords leaves your system. I agree completely that you shouldn't trust unencrypted data to the cloud and I'm always amazed when people think that the likes of Dropbox are secure. The only difference between LastPass and KeePass is that with LastPass you're storing a copy of your encrypted database in the cloud for remote access if required. The fact that you subsequently use your stored passwords through SSL-secured websites makes that the common denominator with its own security problems. I'm happy that AES256 will protect my data well enough in the cloud. Even a man-in-the-middle attack will only see my encrypted data.

    The addon I have is just a conduit between the browser and Keepass where the passwords are stored on your computer.

    Yes, I've read the articles and did my own additional research before deciding. I'm happy with my solution and, obviously, you're happy with yours. Each to his own!
