Unfortunately, Hive Keychain isn't yet available on the Mozilla add-on website, so to use it, you'll need to manually install it via Firefox's debugging tools.
If you're using Google Chrome / Brave / Chromium, @themarkymark has a guide for installing the extension on those browsers here: https://hive.blog/hive/@themarkymark/how-to-install-hive-keychain
Otherwise, continue reading to learn how to install Hive Keychain on Firefox.
First, download and extract Hive Keychain's source code
Click "Clone or download" and select "Download ZIP"
Extract the zip file into a folder.
Next you'll need to install the extension via Firefox debugging tools
Now, enter into your URL bar:
You should see under "This Firefox", a button which says "Load Temporary Addon"
Click on "Load Temporary Addon", then browse to the Hive Keychain folder.
Select one of the files inside of the Hive Keychain folder, for example
LICENSE. Then hit Open.
You should now see the Hive Keychain extension installed, like above.
If it worked, you'll see the Hive Keychain icon - a red and white set of keys in your Firefox menu bar.
Click on the icon, and setup keychain as normal.
Thanks for reading :)
