I think jhsu wants:
Edit/Preferences/Privacy/ uncheck 'Remember Passwords'
Re: I think downloads.rdf might be where the history of downloads done in FF is stored.
If you're concerned about this probably best to back up nothing but your bookmarks, plugins and extensions relevant files, and prefs.js (or is it user.js?).
You can encrypt your backup but bear in mind that, since the backup encryption in dsl was switched to bcrypt, the backup is written to the device in plaintext before being overwritten, supposedly (according to bcrypt) 'securely', though 100% data destruction these days can't be guaranteed. Don't rely on this for mission critical privacy, it is a serious design flaw in bcrypt's code that means there is no alternative but to use it this way. You'd be much better off moving back to a dsl version with 3des encryption and a good long gobbledegook password; that earlier backup implementation did not have this flaw.
