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:
- Right click anywhere on the web page you need to sign in to.
- Select "View Page Info"
- Click on the "Security" tab in the menu.
- Click on "View Saved Passwords"
- 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!
