Asking saved passwords on Mac

Hi there,

I use Firefox both on my Windows PC and Mac. On Windows, when I want to show a saved password, Firefox asks Firefox password first before showing the saved password but on Mac Firefox does not ask Firefox password, so the password is shown immediately after I click the Eye icon.

In my opinion it's quite dangerous because if I forget to lock my Macbook, someone can easily see all my saved password on Firefox.

I hope Firefox can fix this.

Best Regard

Only someone with access to your computer account will have access to your Firefox profile.

I think you are talking about:

Use a Master Password to protect stored logins and passwords {web link}

The password information is stored in two files in the profile folder. The files are encrypted. The Master Password adds another layer of security.
