Yes, I know there is already a few similar questions.

Is there an alternative to RoboForm (which for some reason makes my FF very slow, because of some other extensions) which has the same way of working. What I mean, you click on ... and it opens a new tab with the page in question, and logs on to it (so no databases, and such ...). One other advantage would be if it kept passwords locally.

Basically, I'm looking for RoboForm other than RoboForm.

Anyone knows of any ?

No alternatives for Roboform yet but I think Firefox Secure Login addon is the best of Roboform alternatives...

Excellent add on - works flawlessly, and fast as hell ... +A – Rook Dec 14 '09 at 13:16

I recommend using a combo of lastpass and Firefox's own Form autocomplete .

lastpass keeps all your passwords online and encrypted so only you can access them.
However, they're accessible anywhere in the world.

nope, sorry. i keep some important data (bank related) in it as well, and it's out of the question keeping those online (paranoic in me ;) – Rook Dec 7 '09 at 13:24
As one paranoiac to another: Only the encrypted data is kept on the website, so without the master password it's totally unreadable and useless. lastpass is really done correctly. – harrymc Dec 7 '09 at 13:55
yeah, well ... all that is fine and all ... but until i get a signed statement from them, that they'll cover all expenses, i'm not putting anything more important than an email password online ... sorry. everything that is online stays online, and every encryption can be broken (and besides, i don't know enough about encr. to trust any). not gonna change my mind, sorry :) (here's +1 for trying though ;) – Rook Dec 7 '09 at 14:21

KeePass is very good:

KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).

does it offer an option to open a page and automatically logs you in ? – Rook Dec 7 '09 at 13:10
I honestly don't know. Doesn't cost you anything to try it. :) – churnd Dec 7 '09 at 18:05
Oh, sorry. I'm asking because I used to use it, and it didn't back then (half a year ago), so I was wondering whether something major in that respect has changed in the more recent versions. – Rook Dec 9 '09 at 18:15
KeepPass has an autotype feature and you can open up links from KeePass in your default browser. Not sure if you can "link" those two steps though, but the autotype feature seems to be fairly configurable. – Svish Aug 9 '12 at 11:40

Use Opera and it's Wand instead ;-)

While this link may answer the question, it is better to include the essential parts of the answer here and provide the link for reference. Link-only answers can become invalid if the linked page changes. – Diogo Aug 8 '12 at 22:47
Those pretty much are the essential parts. – Svish Aug 9 '12 at 11:39
