Security Flaw

Pages: 1

I believe the Resume Editing option of FireShot could be considered a security flaw.  If someone did a FireShot capture for a secure site, closed the tab for that site, and then did a Resume Editing, a copy of a screen for the secure tab is still available within FireShot.  The only way to prevent this from happening is to restart Firefox.  Then, the Resume Editing option is not available.  I do not know of any other way to prevent this. Just closing a tab to a secure site when using FireShot is not sufficient to remove all traces of a secure session.

I am using version 0.81 of FireShot with Windows XP professional, version 2002 SP3, English, Firefox/3.6.

Resume editing works for registered users. Due to licensing conditions, it cannot be used by other users, so no security flaw occurs when it's used in accordance to the license.
