Thanks for bringing this up. The Firefox Accounts feature, which currently syncs settings, bookmarks, tabs, and other things, will soon be able to sync username and password information.

When Firefox Sync is used, your passwords will be stored, heavily encrypted, in the cloud. This will be more secure than storing them in cleartext on your local machine.

Actually is Firefox more secure than Google Chrome when it comes to saving passwords. Google Chrome uses the Windows system storage to store the passwords and all passwords can be accessed at any time once you are logged on to the Windows user account. In Firefox you can set a Master Password that needs to be entered to have access to the passwords. If necessary you can log out of the software security device to prevent access by canceling a prompt to enter the MP like when you click the Show Password button in the Password Manager.
