Bonjour à tous,
J'utilise l'option "Mot de passe principale de firefox
mais IL SUFFIT DE FERMER LE FORMULAIRE DE SAISIE et FIREFOX EST DISPONIBLE POUR TOUS,
J'ai espéré autre chose comme accroître la sécurité,  mais je ne compren pas ...

sans entrée mon mot de passe firefox est ouvert.
Merci

The Primary Password is needed to unlock saved passwords. That is all it protects, it does not limit access to any other parts of Firefox.

If you are concerned about others using your Firefox to continue in established web sessions -- without having to log in again -- you can either:

  • Log out of sites when you are done with them
  • Clear the cookies that allow continuing your session on the sites where you are logged in
