Firefox Security Things

I've been posting tutorials around the web for various people who have needed help for various things lately. I figure I'll post them here, in case anyone else has any use for them. First off, how to delete your saved passwords from Firefox, when even uninstalling won't do it.

  1. Tools -> Options
  2. Click on the "Privacy" Icon
  3. Click on the "Passwords" tab
  4. Click on "View Saved Passwords"
  5. Click on "Remove All"

That should do it! Also, if you go to the "Settings" button near the bottom, where it says "The Clear Private Data Tool..." you can set it to erase all passwords, history, cache, etc. when you log out. Click "Settings," check "Clear Private Data on Logout" and hit "OK."

As long as you have a unique network logon, though, you shouldn't need to worry about it: other people can't access your firefox passwords.
