Good password manager with Firefox for office pc

Hi,

I am given a Dell PC at work. I have full control over the pc, except when the pc fails and the technicians take it for repairs. What is a good offline password manager that can work with firefox and will not allow other people from snooping at the username and passwords?

Previously I used a combination of: truecrypt, password exporter (firefox extension) for offline storage. All passwords are stored with firefox.

It stores an encrypted database online yes. Which allows you to sync all your computers or devices. Plus it is encrypted only you have access.

What are the chances of the "online" part being hacked?

Seen that a lot these days.

Even if the online part is hacked, the data in encrypted (AES) and only you have the password that is capable of decrypting it. And that password is never transferred/transmitted to Lastpass, ever. The encrypting and decrypting all happens client side. Thus if you forget your password, Lastpass cannot recover your data.

A hacker cannot see your data nor anyone at Lastpass.
