A program that uses Firefox's builtin password manager with zx2c4's pass.
It is meant to be used instead of other traditional browser extensions such as passff and Browserpass with the following benefits:
- More portable: there is no need to install native messaging host
- Potentially more secure by reducing some of the attack surface:
- No native messaging host
- The native browser UI is better (anecdotal evidence)
Using pre-built binaries from the CI
Linux, macOS and Windows binaries are available on the release page. These binaries are built by GitHub Actions CI.
cargo install pass-fxa
cargo install --git https://github.com/NilsIrl/pass-fxa.git
pass-fxa. That's it!
pass-fxa will attempt to find your firefox credentials by looking for a
password for which the URL is
firefox.com. It will use these credentials to
then upload your passwords to your Firefox Account (passwords are E2E
If multiple records are available, it is possible to specify which to use:
pass-fxa --pass-name email@example.com
It is also possible to remove passwords from FxA if they are in your password store, effectively reverting the uploading operation:
pass-fxa [--pass-name <pass-name>] delete
The URL & username can be obtained in 2 different ways:
- As fields in each file
userfor the username and
launchfor the URL.
- From the filepath, with the containing folder being the domain and the filename the username
For example the following store define logins with username:
github.com firstname.lastname@example.org email riseup.net example yahoo.com robert
Records can be explicitly excluded from being uploaded by adding the line
fxa: exclude to a password file. It is also possible to only upload some passwords
by adding the line
fxa: include. Passwords that have as host
are excluded by default.
