Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. migrate your profile 2. call up pages on which you used the password-manager Actual Results: The password-manager filled out the forms. I was not asked wether I am the legal user of this profile or not. Expected Results: Mozilla should ensure that I am the legal user of this profile. It should not be possible to go to someone's computer and steal all his private data by copying his profile and migrating it to another computer. This might be done by a general password for a profile or by locking a profile to certain computer-hardware or software-installation.
This is done by setting a Master Password. Reporter: if this fixes your problem, please resolve this bug as WFM.
You must encrypt your passwords. (edit\preferences\Privacy&Security\Passwords) -> invalid
