Dangers on unencrypted public wifi for my computer setup?

When I connect to open, public, unencrypted wifi's at places like Starbucks, and Barnes and Noble, etc, what kind of danger does my computer setup leave me open to? [more inside]

Sending passwords over open public wifi connections

Lately I've been spending time at our public library studying and I find myself needing to connect to their open (passwordless) wifi network with my laptop. My computer is fully patched and I have a firewall so that's seems ok for general internet, however I need to log into some non-https websites and I don't want my passwords to be sniffed (especially my school email account). Is there a (/free/) way I can safely/securely log into non-https websites from an open wifi network like this? Thanks for your help.
