Click on that and you'll be taken to a page containing something like
The first step is to enter the distorted words presented in the CAPTCHA - this is
used to prevent automated hacking attempts by "proving" that you're human.
Then, enter the email address you use to log in to Facebook, or your mobile phone number as registered in your Facebook account, and press Continue. Facebook will then ask for final confirmation:
After pressing Reset my password Facebook presents the next
step in the process:
And sure enough, in email you should find, after a short time, email such as
In this example I'll take the confirmation code that was presented in that
email (1089b2b8 in this example, yours will be different), enter it into the
last page that Facebook presented above, press Submit and:
Having confirmed that I am the rightful owner of the account, by having
accessed the email associated with the account, Facebook now allows me to set
my own new password.

narrow it down by typing "Facebook" in the Search box as I've done here.
Click on Show Passwords. After a little extra paranoia:
Saved Passwords dialog box is updated with an extra column: the actual
password, visible for all to see:
Naturally I've blurred my password here, but in reality it's clear as
If you use Internet Explorer you'll need to download a separate tool. Nirsoft has several password recovery tools including "IE PassView" which will expose the passwords saved by Internet Explorer.
All this assumes, of course, that you've allowed your browser to save your passwords for you. If you have not, then this technique will not work.
Security Issue The security issue I mentioned?
If you allow your browser to save passwords, anyone with access to your machine can perform the browser password recovery steps outlined above to discover what those passwords are.
Make sure that your machine is secure.
