It is in the subject line... :/

As far as the question is concerned though, a quick google search brought this up:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/fir...utofill-forms/

There are many addons to fit your likings, just search around!

From a security point of view I guess the best password manager is yourself

szboardstretcher 02-16-2011 11:45 AM

I would never use a password manager or form filler that is built in or used by firefox. It just screams security issues to me.

corp769 02-16-2011 11:48 AM

Yeah, I would never use a password manager in my life. The way I look at it, if you need to use one, then you shouldn't be using a computer. Just my three cents...

Personally I use KeePassX (http://www.keepassx.org/), which is a separate program, for the password manager, it will auto-fill to any program and has global shortcuts. For the form filler I use the Firefox auto-fill that is built in and just type the first few letters and pick an option.

So had to install ppa?

I didn't have to add a ppa, it is in the Ubuntu repos, at least since 9.10. The package is "keepassx"

so in Ubuntu,

Code:

sudo apt-get install keepassx
should install it.

Advice Pro 02-19-2011 08:31 AM

So will keepassx fill forms in Firefox or do I need the Firefox addon instead?

KeePassX will fill the Username/Password forms but not other forms, you could use a firefox extension for this.
