Yesterday I wrote about how you could recover a lost password if you had it saved in your Chrome browser. As far as I’m aware there is no such facility in Internet Explorer but there is in Firefox…
Recovering a lost password in Firefox
1. Firstly, you need to click on the orange Firefox button which is at the top left of your browser.
2. Now choose Options followed by Options again.
3. This will open a new window. Here you need to click on the Security tab in order to see the screen above. Now click on the Saved Passwords… button.
4. This will show a list of all the user names you have saved for any web sites stored in Firefox. You need to click on the Show Passwords button found in the bottom right hand corner.
A box will open asking you to confirm whether or not you really do wish to display your list of passwords. Click on Yes.
Now you will be able to see a list of web sites for which information has been saved in Firefox along with the corresponding user names and passwords (hidden in the image above for my own protection).
