Encode the password using base64 before storing it to the configuration file.
There are two reasons for this: - QUrl::toEncoded() has problems with some characters like the colon and @. Those are not percent encoded, causing the string getting parsed wrongly when reading it back (see FS#12166). - The password is cleartext in the configuration file. While using base64 doesn't provide any real security either it's at least better than plaintext. Since this program is open source any fixed mechanism to obfuscate / encrypt the password isn't much help either since anyone interested in the password can look at the sources. The best way would be to eventually use host OS functionality to store the password. Change-Id: I6ac49d68211236e540b6ca16481e0e1c196532b7
