Actual: Passwords (for sites as for Proxy settings) are stored in the Configuration File as Cleartext on the Hard Disk. The Users Passwords can be easily observed by opening the Config.
Request: Encrypt the Passwords using symmetric Encryption (such as AES or Blowfish). Although it would be possible to retrieve the Key that has been user , the stored Passwords cannot be read as easily from the Config.
