Having many different logins and passwords to remember can be a daunting task. To remedy this, like most other modern browsers, Firefox, too, has a feature that lets you save passwords.
Firefox saves and automatically fills user credentials that you have saved, making logging onto a site very easy. On the flip side, though, relying on saved passwords can make you forget them easily. And if you need to log onto that site from a different browser or a machine, you might have a problem.
If that is the case, then don’t lose hope. Not only does Firefox store your passwords, but you can also view them in case you forgot. In this article, we will show you how you can view your saved passwords in Firefox.
