Sometimes you need to sign in to a site on another device or browser, but you forgot the password. If you previously let Firefox store the password, you can easily recover it on Windows 10, Mac, and Linux. Here’s how.

First, open Mozilla Firefox and click on the “hamburger” button (three horizontal lines) in the upper right corner of any window. In the menu that appears, click on “Connections and passwords”.

A “Connections and Passwords” tab will appear. In the sidebar, you will see a list of sites with account information stored. Click on the account you want to view in more detail.

After clicking, you will see details about this account in the right half of the window. This information includes the website address, user name, and a password that has been withheld for security reasons. To reveal the password, click on the “eye” icon next to it.

After that, the password will appear.

Make sure you remember the password, but resist the urge to write it down where someone else can see it. If you’re having trouble keeping track of passwords across browsers and devices, it’s usually best to use a password manager to keep things straight. Good luck!
