Is the stored data for forms also encrypted like the passwords?

I know the passwords for different websites are stored locally, in an encrypted file. I'd like to know if this is also the case for form data. Is the locally stored data for forms also encrypted like the passwords?

Thank you for your prompt reply. I checked out the add-on suggested, but it seems overly complicated.

This could be a suggestion for the further updates of Firefox: add an option to turn on/off encryption of the form data with a simple checkbox under Options. Or, make it always encrypted, like the passwords. Use the same routines already in place for encryption/decryption of the passwords to make it easier to implement.

Rationale: many of the form data consists of private information, sometimes even more sensitive than passwords.
