".....According to Wladimir Palant, author of the popular Adblock Plus extension, the password manager in Firefox and Thunderbird needs some major improvements in terms of security. The manager can spill out passwords in less than a minute...."


Is there anyone in today's day & age that is, well, uhmmm, "challenged" enough that they still use a password manager and do not instead keep detailed paper & pencil (in locked safe) password management for truly sensitive online stuff (fin'l, insurance & health)? Yeah, paper & pencil may be old fashioned, but you gotta be literally beyond nutso in trusting any Password Manager and/or encryption scheme for your super sensitive stuff. Until quantum encrypting computers & programs come into full existence, sharpen your pencils & keep the flame of calligraphy & creativity alive Wink
