Possbility of a Secure Firefox Portable?

I was using firefox portable on a work computer and was wondering if it could be password protected (to open) and saved password etc could be encrypted.

Im in no way able to do this, I only wanted to put forward the idea.

Thanks

yes you can

set a master password to encrypt your stored passwords. And yes there is an extension to password protect your profile but its not a very strong protection. I havent tried it so I dnt know for sure.

If the Master Password could

If the Master Password could encrypt not only the signons2.txt file, but also the cookies.txt and sessionstore.js, it would be a step into more secure roaming profiles. Even better if the entire profile would be protected by the Master Password.

If I don't

use profiles, how can I protect the entire firefox???

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Biggrin

Install an addon called KeyScrambler. It encrypts everything you type. Not sure if it works correctly on Portable Firefox tho. Anyone know about this?

Failure is not an option. It comes bundled with Windows.

No

I tried KeyScrambler in the past, it tries to reinstall in every computer I run Portable Firefox so it is not portable... Sad

You DO use profiles

or, at least, you use a profile - there is no other way to use Firefox. It always sets up a single default profile when you first run it. That is the one that you can protect with the addon.

Also, use an addon such as Secure Login. It protects the information you input into text fields within the browser.
