Improved Bookmarks

There were some limitations in bookmarks, like impossibility to place folder on bookmarks toolbar or edit name of folder.
It is implemented in this commit.
I think it is sufficient enough, though you still cannot make subfolder in normal folder or subfolder in subfolder.

From now, bookmarks in toolbar are no longer present in Bookmarks Sidebar, as it is unnecessary and it also frees some space for your unsorted bookmarks.
This feature will be included in next version (1.0.0 stable)

Note: If you are building from git, you may need to either delete your profile (~/.qupzilla) or change your profile version to 1.0.0-b4 (in ~/.qupzilla/profiles/yourprofile/version file) in order to update your profile database.

You can check how it looks on following screenshots:

Improved Password Manager

I received some complaints about showing user passwords in Preferences (link).
I can agree with that, so I have improved it in recent commit.

From now, passwords are by default hidden with "*****", and if you want to show them, you need to click Show passwords button and then agree, that you really want to. It's not ideal though, but to make it really secure, it would be necessary to crypt all passwords with main password.

You can see how it works in action at screenshots:

Passwords shown as ****
You must agree
You can see passwords now
