Description Anuj Verma (Kevin) 2006-11-29 15:53:20 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. Password Database 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.
