Passwords

Note

Both Firefox and Thunderbird store their Master Passwords separately. If you happen to import from an older Netscape or Mozilla profile and set a master password in that profile, Firefox and Thunderbird both inherit that master password.


The Password Management section of Thunderbird can be accessed by going to Tools | Options | Advanced. Under the Saved Passwords section, you can manage your Stored Mail password settings as well as set a Master Password for your account. Note that the Password Manager functionality in Thunderbird is based on the same principles as those in Firefox, so there will be some overlap here between what is discussed in Chapter 2, “Protecting Your Security and Privacy.” I have elected to go into a little more depth discussing the Master Password settings than what was covered in Chapter 2.
