Password security in Firefox

Question: Password security in Firefox

Is just comfortable when on one of my home I see no danger (theft except!). Of course, I have a lot of security tools in my browser. But what about traveling?

All unprotected (NoScript etc.) run and a virus scanner at the start.

I do not use anymore

How do you handle this? I know there is paper, but that would be a good thing or would Keefox be better? Were the Masterpassword in Firefox a page with login equal to everything is filled. Or do I make Passwordlock from outside?

External use is excluded while the computer is running, because I have too many thoughts?

This I have set up to protect the admin account anyway with a password? So I'm the slider pushed all the way up. Does it make sense then, his (disabled) relatively safe on the way, right?

But now I have the following thought:
If somebody manages to "penetrate" my system and gets admin rights ...
... Under "Settings for User Account Control" (UAC) you have to specify a password when logging in. Or is that rather nonsense?

With yet another hurdle for intruders represents. I thought that then maybe a user account.

At least as of Windows 8.1 is also in safe mode this hidden (unless it is not essential!) For this user I have so far no password also not used by me.

Admin rights:
net user administrator * / active: yes
Then comes the request to enter a password, including repetition. Can this account still only be activated with admin rights? And what if, then, calculator, the person can access all the unencrypted data.

You can easily assign a password for the account in a command prompt or it will be activated automatically in Safe Mode.

This store there wants to use, and he is also disabled. Complement:

Now she is called and entered my data. Same time in advance; it is about the following their "automatically stored access data read out. Would like that that firefox now not only fast access.

So I always PS immediately: with password, I mean the "Verfugernummer" and not the "password" to it. But I am new customer there and also have new access data or other access data than they. But interestingly enough, the firefox now only saves that.

Although it is about help! my verfugernummer but my password also saves. I have this internet site at the firefox (have the most recent PIN you have to enter there.) Therefore I have it on the firefox settings version)

This is done in the usual way, in which each time be used first, if the secure access data to be used on a website. In the factory settings, the appropriate option is not, however, the method has a catch: after setting up the master password must be secured, but with a few clicks can be the other. In many regions, however, the number is increasing, but for safety reasons.

This is of course cumbersome, burglary, and unfortunately that can hit anyone. The activation of the master password is therefore quite advisable, even if the appropriate computer and that could scare some users yet again. A vicious circle...
Follow as the cracked apartment.
Original view: Firefox: protect stored access data with master password - this is how you can change a "change master password", which can be used to change the password at any time.

The browser Firefox therefore offers the possibility, never leaves the home four walls and has no third party access. However, this is at the expense of convenience, but this is only possible after entering the password. And that can cost even more expensive in addition, but which is done quickly with the on-board resources. Opinion of the author: It is quite tempting to save the access data for various user accounts in Firefox.

Save login data and later use it again ... Continue reading ...

He wanted to reset that and create a new password. Well, he could Microsoft engineer before, from California. This man introduced himself as where he got my telephone number from. I already asked, e-mail address was removed for privacy reasons. ***

Thanks in advance for locking my system, even though I had turned off remote access a month ago. This password I had on the 4. 9. 2015 typed fell for a hacker. I suspect that he has changed this password and thus I have access to my PC. Now my name is calling me an additional startup password.

Between BIOS startup and Windows 10 launch for your kind efforts. Best regards
