Firefox shenanigans again! An update 98.0.01 has deleted the passwords addon I had previously gotten back up and running in an earlier update.
I have tried to reintgrate the addon through avast but nothing seems to be working.

Hi,

What happens when you try to add the extension (Privacy > Passwords > Settings > Browser Integration)? Can you add a screenshot, please? Which Avast version do you have?

I was using an add on with firefox called https everywhere which was killing the browser integration link. After disabling it for the link I was able to get it back. YAY me.
Why is the link on http instead of https?

[...] I've already migrated to Bitwarden.
[...] I see Bitwarden is free, but as they say "when something is free, YOU are the product".
I'm a bit surprised that Avast doesn't mention Bitwarden in their blog article "How to pick the right password manager" as a possible candidate.

As I needed a -preferably free- password manager myself for some time now, I did an in depth study on the 'free' password managers.

Bitwarden is worth more than only looking at.
They're adepts of 'Zero Trust' security. In other words: they don't have any access at your passwords. Nor can they help you recovering your passwords if you forgot your Bitwarden password: elementary to Zero Trust security.

In the end, I moved from Keyring (initially for webOS, later for Android) to Bitwarden. Haven't regretted it since.

And if you're really serious about your password security, make sure your password manager provides in the possibility to enable MFA. Bitwarden does, however for a fee.

There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.
Yes, there is. However if you want to complete your lunch with MFA-desert, Bitwarden asks a fee.
I went for desert, but that's everyone own choice.
