I'm looking to have a password for firefox when I start the program up so that other people can't look at my bookmarks. Any ideas?

Firefox doesn't have such a feature built in but you may acheive it by installing this addon Link.
Best thing is a separate Windows Logon User Account for each user of that PC and / or one for "guest" users. That will provide far more privacy.

You can post back after checking. You have the option of having two different profiles for two different users.

Useful, but as I suspected not what I wanted and would mean I was having to encrypt and decyrpt links all the time. Also like a reviewing said it doesnt have a master password to prevent others adding password to your links.

I was looking for something when firefox boots up meaning other people would have to use IE which would have none of my links. Probably tons of ways round that anyway if possible

Oh, that is pretty easy with a software called Password Door Manager. You should not forget the password in any case, if you forget it's really not easy to bypass it because it has a kernel running at the startup. It's not free, I have the pro version and it works fine. If you don't want to spend money on this you have the option of trying out DeskLock and Empathy (postcardware) which I haven't tried.
