Master Password

This is the function of the Master Password under Security options.

Note, however, this will only keep someone from using your FF with your passwords. Only encryption will keep someone really determined from getting at your saved passwords through more roundabout methods.

All data protected by the

All data protected by the Master Password function is stored in signons.txt, which is encrypted. Domains are not encrypted, but username and password information is.

From mine:

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX==
*Password
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX==

Just in case...

Just in case there were a security vulnerability found in FF's password encryptor, it's best not to post the contents publicly.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Which algorithm does Firefox use?
