Browsers Password

Quick access to hidden **** browser passwords

This works in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Netscape and Opera browsers
Go to a page that has a password hidden by ***’s then just paste this simple script below into your browser bar and it will pop up a messagebox showing your password.

javascript:(function(){var s,F,j,f,i; s = “”; F = document.forms; for(j=0; j

This script replaces the ****’s with the plaintext password , works in Firefox only

javascript:var els = document.getElementsByTagName(‘input’); for(var x=0; x

Also quick access to Firefox’s password manager instead of going through the menus
Paste this in your browser: chrome://passwordmgr/content/passwordManager.xul
