While trying to track down the circumstances of my bug 61074, I deleted some files related to chromes on my installation. Now, I am not prompted for a PSM password, but PSM can still provide my IMAP password and passwords to web sites. I've ALWAYS used the "encrypt" sensitive data option, so this data should never be available without knowing the password. I consider this a serious security problem.
After a quit and a restart, I no longer see this behavior. Is it possible that I had an instance of PSM around from a pervious mozilla session that crashed and that that PSM was supplying password information to the new mozilla session?
Yes definitely. There is a bug filed about PSM not stopping (after a crash or even simply when quitting Mozilla), you can query for it yourself or if you really don't find it email me and I'll find it for you. Marking this worksforme per reporter's comments. Please reopen if you think it is necessary. Thank you for the update, keep the reports coming :) Fabian.
