In addition to having the Mac firewall on, antivirus and Little Snitch running, I'm wondering what else I can do to protect my information from being compromised.

Specifically, I want to protect the passwords that I use to access sites including email, accounts, forums etc. I would like to know which options are best:
1] allow Firefox to remember passwords and use a master password
2] not allow Firefox to remember passwords and type in passwords each time I access sites
3] if it makes any difference, copy/paste passwords from a text file

Also, some sites will ask for a password but the page that is then launched is not encrypted (according to the alert message). Can a password be intercepted in this case?
