Geek Tip: This week's tip comes from Firefox Facts explaining how to recover lost passwords in Firefox - Go to Tools > Options > Security Once you find yourself there in that popup options box, go down to where it says �Show Passwords��. Click that button and a new popup box should appear listing all your web sites and login names. To show your passwords click on the �Show Passwords� button and click �Yes� through the warning it tosses at you.

For those needing a quicker fix - you can use the Firefox Asterisk Revealer. It uses a line of javascript copied and pasted into the address bar to take a shorter route at getting this job done. Read more!
