How to view ALL autocomplete entries at once? Where is the storage?

    Ok, when I have a certain entry field on a web page all existing auto-complete
    values FOR THIS field are shown in the kind-of-drop-down.

    But is there a way to view ALL current auto-compete values for all possible entry fields
    at once?

    Where is the storage of all these auto-complete values?

    In registry? Where exactly?

    It may be encrypted, but clearly the decryption key is available to
    the application without further user input. So it should be possible
    for anyone to find it.

    if it is that easy for anyone to find it, we do have a security hole for
    gleaning important information, account info etc

    Of course there is a security hole. That is why you can turn the
    feature off when you value your security.
