    Just noticed today that Firefox stores passwords you have. I clicked the tools, privacy and passwords Not sure if this is a security issue being that I can easily see them all.
    I tend not to play around with Internet settings on the basis that if it works leave it alone. I see that you can turn it off but not certain if they are still there somewhere that others can peek at with spyware although I do regular scans.
    i can see it being useful though as you can accumalate a good few passwords.
    and so, is it a security issue?

    I have a bowl full of keys in my house. Is that a security issue ?
    Yes, if someone I don't trust has access to it.
    Otherwise, no.

    Does anyone access your PC other than you ? If your PC was stolen, do you think this info would be useful to criminals?

    Ok Bri, not an issue with others having access.
    Perhaps being a bit paranoid but you have to be on top of all this ID theft.
    Bowl full of keys would give me concern though.

    It stores the passwords encrypted. You can make it forget them also if you wish. It's in the tools menu.

    Set the master password up, it will still remember all the passwords but once per session you will have to enter your master password for it to use them.
