Default Do your friends or family use Firefox? Get their password!

Well, I figured this out and I found it quite funny for it to be so open.

You know when you send forms with firefox you have the option of saving it? Well if your friend or family has done this at least once or twice, you can just go into the firefox passwords and click "show passwords" and VIOLA!

Yeah I noticed this a few months ago so now i have a master password set up. (this will stop it)

I have to admit that this is one of the only bad points of firefox but i have found it usefull when i cant rember a password.

I use Opera on my computer, although my computer also happens to be in my room and thus my own. My parents only use it occasionally to print stuff on the printer+copier+scanner attached to my pc.

Didn't hear about the form saving thingy. I used AutoFill which just fills out the form automatically. However, had never heard about this. Can it give you someone's hotmail password? :P I'll try to play a prank on my sister if so

I personally use RoboForm. I would never trust a browser with my passwords to my banks, and other important institutions.

Don't misuse the trick though! Stealing passwords is not a really nice thing to do.
