When Satchel (the new combined form/password manager for Phoenix) is ready I'm sure there will be a UI for this. Until then, you should be able to access your passwords with the following hack: Paste [url=chrome://communicator/content/pref/pref.xul]this[/url] into a new tab and go to "Privacy & Security > Passwords". No guarantee that this works though, it may even crash your browser, so be prepared.

Make sure you open it in a new tab or new window...because clicking "OK" will close the tab/window in which it is open.

With [url=chrome://communicator/content/pref/pref.xul]this[/url] I went go to this advanced Preferences Panel. (the chrome... pref.xul)
I tried to enable Password encryption and to create an masterpassword, but my settings were not stored. Is there no possibility for storing Passwords encrypted in Phoenix?
If it's possible, where I can change those preferences in the js-Files?

I tired this; and I got an advanced Preferences *contents* in the left-hand frame of the page; but no data in the right-hand frame, for anything. Ddid I do something wrong, or is there a bug in the code as posted?
