>>52363191 the passwords are stored in an encrypted form, but the encryption key is also stored in the profile (otherwise, firefox wouldn't be able to read them again). so someone with access to your profile folder would have access to all saved passwords.
you can, however, set a master password (about:preferences#security). in that case, another layer of encryption will be added, using the master password. you'll have to enter the master password once per firefox session. when you exit firefox, the passwords will be safely stored in your profile.
It's safe if you know what you're doing. If you send your shit to mozilla without a password, it's very likely the UK intelligence service can break into your shit. If you store it locally and/or encrypted then you're okay.
Chrome version is only safe if you set your own sync password

>>52364841 A botnet is a client/server model with malicious intent. Clients are infected, typically without consent of the owner or him being aware thereof, which are called zombies and in turn infect other machines while awaiting commands from and sending (private) information to the command and control server.
LastPass and Google fail to meet a fundamental criteria to be labelled a 'botnet', which is that you *chose* to agree to use their services (therefore with you consent). I.e., you should've fucking known better.
