Firefox can securely save passwords you enter in web forms to make it easier to log on to websites. By default the option “Remember passwords for sites” option is enabled but you will still be asked whether to save passwords for a site when you first visit it. Clicking the Remember button will save the login information, Not Now button to ignore it or Never for This Site, that site will be added to an exceptions list and will never prompt you to save the username and password for that site. This feature is available at every web browser and is offered as a convenience but also increases the risk of your login information being exposed.

we can also put these 2 tools to good use such as recovering the sign-on details when Firefox fails to open.

1. FirePasswordViewer

FirePasswordViewer is the GUI version of popular FirePassword tool designed to decrypt sign-on secrets stored by Firefox. FirePasswordViewer tool can decrypt and display these secrets on the same lines as the Firefox built-in password manager. The main advantage of FirePasswordViewer is that it does not require Firefox to be running.
