If you are like me then your probably quite lazy at remembering your passwords and usually let Firefox take care of them. if you are, you need to enable the Firefox Master Password.

Within Firefox security settings ( Tools > Options > Security tab) there is an option called "Saved Passwords" which kindly shows you all the passwords that are saved within Firefox.




However if you laptop gets "accidentally" left on a train or your you've got a nosey family, rejoyce! there is hope, Firefox has a Master Password option which allows you to set a password before any of your saved passwords can be used. Just head over to the Firefox security settings and tick the option "Use a master password".




when you fire up Firefox you get the following prompt before your passwords are accessed.
