Mozilla Firefox can save the passwords of all the pages you visit to make your next login to the site easier by automatically filling in the login information.

Although saving passwords in the browser is a convenient feature, you may need a specific password to update your account information on the site, or because you need to log in to the same service using a different device.

Whatever the reason, if you don’t remember a password, as in Edge and Chrome, Firefox allows you to access, view, and delete passwords stored in Windows 10 browser settings.

This guide shows you the steps to view the password for a website that you have saved in Firefox.

Viewing and Deleting Passwords Stored in Firefox

  • Open the Options dialog box by selecting Options from the Firefox main menu or submenu.
  • Click the Security button at the top of the Options dialog box. In the Passwords box, click Saved Passwords.
  • The Saved Passwords dialog box displays all Web sites for which you have registered your username and password, and the usernames are displayed. Passwords are hidden by default. To
  • view the passwords, click Show Passwords.
  • A confirmation dialog box appears to ensure that you want to display your passwords. Click Yes if you still want to see your passwords.
  • A Password column appears and all your passwords are displayed. It is a good idea to make sure that no one is hiding near you, as passwords are displayed in plain text in the dialog box.
  • To remove a password from the Password Manager, select the appropriate website and click Remove. To delete all your passwords, click Delete All. To hide your passwords again, click Hide Passwords.
