    I want to use session cookies only and wonder if it is safe to use the password manager in Firefox for storage of this data.

    Anyone know of problems or issues doing this ,or is it just a bad idea?

    i found and loaded the CookieCuller extension, but so far I have not been able to get it operational. If I can get the cookies saved for my websites when i delete the rest I will have no need for thr saved passwords

    added cookieculler to the toolbar and now it works.with this feature I don't need to save passwords!

    They are stored in a text file located at C:\Documents and Settings\your name\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\\signons.txt. When viewing the file, the website is given but the signon is a long string of seemingly random characters. The location would be different on every computer and the information is encrypted. I suppose someone could access it, but the effort involved wouldn't be worth it.

    As a side note, Firefox by default doesn't encrypt secure pages.
