Do you chronically blank on your passwords? If so, I have a little tip that can make things much easier on you: you can recover saved passwords from any site in Firefox in five easy steps! Ready? Here we go:


  1. Right click anywhere on the web page you need to sign in to.
  2. Select "View Page Info"
  3. Click on the "Security" tab in the menu.
  4. Click on "View Saved Passwords"
  5. Click on "Show Passwords"

You can then view all user names and saved passwords that have been stored by your Firefox cookies.

Is this tip helpful? Yes — I have forgotten many a password in my day and this would have saved me time and frustration. Is this tip dangerous? Possibly — if your computer isn't password protected and it just so happens to fall into the wrong hands, you could be setting yourself up for a problem. My solution would be to use this little tip when you need it, but remember to password protect your computer so it's safely locked when you aren't around!
