Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Firefox is a free and open source web browser descended from the Mozilla Application Suite and managed by Mozilla Corporation. As of May 2011, Firefox is the second most widely used browser with approximately 30% of worldwide usage share of web browsers.
In a safe and secure manner, Firefox can store usernames and passwords that you use to access sites on the web. When you access a site for which Firefox has stored your username and password, Firefox automatically fills in the appropriate fields for you.
While you forgot the password that you entered there, there is no way of simple looking into a file.
Here is some ways for you to reset your forgot password.
Reset the Master Password in Firefox:
Open Firefox and paste the following line into the address bar:
A text will appear saying that if you reset your master password all login derails including usernames, passwords and websites will be lost. If you click on Reset the master password is reset which means that you can enter a new one, Cancel would be the other option.
Brute Force the Master Password in Firefox:
You can use a software called Firefox password Recovery. It is a smart and powerful utility to recovery passwords to web sites saved in Firefox Web Browser and Thunderbird. This tool can get the list of all usernames and passwords saved in Firefox Web Browser with only one button click!
Brute Force will most likely succeed if the master password consists of an existing word, words or name.
How to use it, please follow me:
Step 1: To get a list of all passwords stored by Firefox Web Browser, press "Start Recovery" button and select Recovery Firefox Password menu item.
Step 2: The passwords together with their Website URL and User name will be displayed.
