Complete lock of Firefox
I am looking for a way to lock Firefox completely including all generated data. I hoping to install such feature on my business laptop that I regularly use for private stuff, so that I can keep it private! I have been browsing the world wide web with any luck. Are there really no solution?
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:66.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/66.0
Well, even if you find a tool that requires a password to start Firefox, that wouldn't solve the problem because the data is still sitting there on disk for anyone to access.
Are you able to use full disk encryption on your system?
If not, a possible option is to put your Firefox profile folder (Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data) into an encrypted file and access it as a folder on a virtual partition. One tool for that is VeraCrypt. I haven't tested that setup myself, but there is a mention and a couple links in the conclusion of this article:
It's also one of the methods mentioned as providing Strong protection here:
