    Is there any way to disable the *viewing* of password in plain text
    under Privacy->view saved passwords->show passwords.
    I tried to see if any of the setting in about:config can help me, but
    couldn't figure it out.

  2. If you wish to hide your passwords from someone with access to your
    computer, then perforce you will have to adopt a Master Password. Then,
    without the Master Password, a person cannot access the passwords - but
    you will have to enter it every session of course as well.

    Thanks Dan.
    Right now I do the same but was figuring out if there is a way to
    disable the *feature* altogether.

    How about using a secure, password-protected Windows user account for
    you and a separate user account for any others who use your computer?
    Then you'd only have to enter a password when you start the computer,
    not every time you restart TB during a Windows session.
