Two Ways to View All the Passwords Stored in Firefox.
Whenever you type a password in a web form, for instance, while logging into Gmail, firefox prompts to ask you if you’d like to store this password,
If you click on the Remember button, firefox remembers your password and auto fills it the next time you open the same web page. But do you know that it is very easy to view all these passwords in plain text format. So, anybody with physical access to your computer can easily crack (read?) all your passwords. Following are two ways to do this-
1. This method doesn’t require any third party software. Simply open the firefox and go to Tools -> Options , and click on the security tab. Under this tab click on the Saved Passwords button.
Now, in the saved passwords window, click on Show Passwordsbutton. You’ll instantly see all the password saved by you in the firefox.
This method displays passwords stored only by the current profile of firefox. If you want to see the passwords by another profile, then start firefox with that profile, or use the second method.
2. This method is even more scary. You will be able to view all the passwords stored by all the profiles of firefox, from the same window.
This method involves use of PasswordFox. This is a small program which doesn’t even needs installation. Simply download it from here, and run the executable PasswordFox.exe. The main window of the program will instantly display all the usernames and passwords stored by firefox.
To view the passwords stored by other profiles, click on the folder icon on the program window, then click on the browse profile folders button and choose appropriate profile.

   in chrome view all password stored.

Nirsoft has released a great tool using which you can view all the usernames and passwords stored in Google chrome for your website logins.

Translating ChromePass to other languages
You can also translate chromePass to languages other than English using the following process,
Step 1. Run chromePass on commandline with /savelangfile parameter like this,
ChromePass.exe /savelangfile
doing this will create ChromePass_lng.ini folder where chromepass.exe is located.
Step 2. Open ChromePass_lng.ini in notepad or in any other text editor.
Step 3. Now translate all the strings in this file to desired language using any online translation tool.
Step 4. After the translation, simply run chromepass again, all the translated strings will be automatically loaded into it.
If for some reason, you don’t wan’t this translation again, simply delete or move ChromePass_lng.ini.

That’s it. Enjoy!
