The Firefox and Thunderbird password management tools should be synced. 
Currently Thunderbird doesn't encrypt the passwords, but rather base64 encodes
them.  This was a problem with Firefox for a time period, but in the latter
releases Firefox has encrypted Passwords.  While in Thunderbird only the Master
Password option will encrypt passwords.

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  
Thunderbird passwords stored in plain text

Expected Results:  
They should be encrypted as in Firefox
Bug 239131 handles this quite nicely.
