<font size=2>Hi,<br><br>do you want ClearProg to delete the stored Mozilla username and password information<br>for certain websites?<br><br>If this is what you want you're not going to like this: There has been much controversy<br>here about ClearProg removing stored Mozilla passwords.<br>However, we have decided against this feature mainly for safety reasons. <br>We strongly feel, that ClearProg and its Plugins should be as safe as possible.<br><b>ClearProg is designed not to destroy valuable information by default</b>.<br><br>Just think about users experimenting with ClearProg and doing so, inadvertently<br>destroying all their stored username and password information!<br><br>Back to your question: Mozilla Firefox (1.5+) offers very good control about what<br>information to store. If you are concerned about stored passwords, you can switch<br>off the remembering completely.<br>Moreover, pressing Ctrl-Shift-Del in Firefox (1.5+) pops up a (configurable) "sanitize<br>screen" where you can delete all or selected private information with one mouse click.<br><br>Regards Armin<br><br> </font>

<font size=2>I guess the problem to integrate an option to delete stored passwords in ClearProg is the unexperienced user.<br><br>A lot of users just check all options in ClearProg, then they would be surprised, why their saved passwords are away.<br><br>The best solution would be a plug-in for experienced users, but with the current plug-in API it is not possible to create such a plug-in.<br><br>Nevertheless, you can use the build-in option in Firefox, as Armin already said. You can tweak the sanitize option in Firefox, so that all data will be cleared when you close the browser.<br> <br> </font><br><font size=1><i>bearbeitet von <a href="/action=profile&id=15"> Chris</a> am 11.05.2006 16:50</i><br></font><br><hr size="1" color=#0066FF width=150 align=left><font size=2>Chris<br></font><br>
