Gaping Default Security Hole in Firefox Allowing the Viewing of ALL Your Saved Passwords in Plain Clear Text!

WARNING GAPING SECURITY HOLE IN FIREFOX !!!

If you use Firefox are you aware that ANYONE in-the-know that you give access to your computer (iffy friends, bad roommates, sketchy relatives, etc) can EASILY look up and see ALL YOUR SAVED PASSWORDS IN PLAIN CLEAR TEXT !!!

I was completely unaware of this until about a month ago and was TOTALLY SHOCKED ! Even though I'm a technology buff and professional PC / network technician by former trade (I thought I knew everything !)

Want to see?

Ok, click on Tools > Options then go to the Security tab. Find the Saved Passwords button and click on it. Then simply click on Show Passwords and !?! WTF !?! Really !!??!!

I guess that's why they have the "Use a master password" option (and you'd better change ALL your shown passwords and set a master password if you've EVER given anyone shady a chance to use your PC)

Google Chrome also has this (what I would call) default gaping security FLAW! http://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/lay-off-chrome-firefox-has-the-same-password-security-flaw/#!JlK2z
