I also use 1Password. It defaults at 20 characters but you can set it longer or shorter and tell it to include dashes, hyphens and characters. I've had problems because of the website (doesn't allow underscores or something similar) but not with the 1Password program. I don't trust Google, I'm not sure about FireFox, and at times I've heard bad things about most pay password managers, but a lot of that is that people don't like the re-occurring cost. I don't either, but I don't want to try writing something myself and my only real option other than a manager is to write it down, even though I'm not supposed to. And I still need to come up with a unique password myself that doesn't violate whatever rules that site/program requires.

There are probably other good managers out there, so pick one. That's the path I would advise- find a dedicated password program that isn't owned by a company whose primary business is selling your information.
