Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 217769
RFE: Password manager auto-lock/timeout and master password challenge
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:50 EST
Concerned with the recent news of security issues related to mozilla/firefox
web-browser. I feel good to suggest a feature request to ensure that:
1. Data is encrypted
2. User is prompted for master password only when browser faces a
username/password prompt of a known host
3. Effectively master password should timeout and auto-lock and clipboard should
clear up in-case of passwd data copied to it.

This is definitively upstream RFE, and it is actually filed as bug
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=222408 Closing this bug and waiting
resolution of this upstream.
