    Question Saving passwords

    Hi Loungers,

    It has always been my method of operating, by having FF save my passwords. Would it be safer doing so in the portable version of FF. At present, it is on C: drive, with a 'Shortcut' on my desktop.

    Get a password manager. They are mostly free, work very well and passwords are kept encrypted. I use LastPass and I pay $1/month for it, so that I can have it on my phone, too.

    Hi Rui, I have tried Lastpass and found it too complicated. This is something else I am contemplating using. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...urce=inproduct

    If you are only interested in saving passwords for Mozilla, that will be a better option than just saving the passwords. Other browsers won't benefit from that.
