Show characters in the password in Firefox

Hello friends, in today's tutorial we will see how we can see the characters in the "password" field when we log on to different sites or web services using the Mozilla Firefox browser.
I've done in the past a tutorial called Security in the browser, we can see the characters passwords under the stars it will look the same but the method was somewhat more complicated, and even some users have commented that tutorial that method does not work for them.
Well, this time it's an extension for Firefox called Show / hide passwords that once installed, will place a "Show" button below the field where we enter the password when we log in to various web services. Its usefulness is to help us when we know we are in a hurry and not too sure of ourselves to type the password in the login field. As you probably know, basic (by default) desktop browsers do not display the characters written in the password field, whatever I type in the password field we will only see some stars or dots. This happens to protect us from those around us when we type it.
The Show / hide passwords extension will show us a “Show” button under all the password fields and if we are not too sure that we typed the password correctly, with a simple click on the “Show” button we can see what we typed in the password field and so on. we make sure that it has been typed correctly and so we can go ahead with logging on to that site or service.
Once we click on the "Show" button it will turn into "Hide" and after watching the password, we can click on the "Hide" button to hide the password again.
Show / hide passwords is a very useful extension paersoanelor with disabilities or those of a great age are not very confident when using a computer keyboard. Even healthy people make mistakes cannon happens when keys hurry and enter quickly!
Another usefulness of the Show / hide passwords extension is when we forget the password for certain accounts. As you probably know, when we first log in to a site, the browser asks us if we want it to remember our username and password so that they are entered automatically the next time we return to that site and we want to not logam. Well, it may happen that at some point we forget the password, but in the past we probably checked that the browser will automatically fill them in for us when logging in. If this has happened, when we visit the login page for that site or service, we can click the "Show" button to see what password we used to access that site.
Most likely initiated know to walk in the advanced settings of the browser Firefox password manager to reach and view passwords in that section without to need extension Show / Hide passwords.
Towards the end you say that Windows Internet Explorer browser and Windows 8 8.1 have the option to display the characters in the password field implemented in the browser (built in show password)
If you install and use extension Show / Hide passwords can be found on the official website: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/showhide-passwords/

  2. Stefan said

    write password in notepad

  3. Chrome browser no such extension is very interesting.

  4. Firefox browser has the ability to store these passwords, and delete history every time I close firefox, I did so for reasons of privacy.de set example, when I login on facebook using bookmarks (very useful this menu and saves you more video downloads for example if you want to see a video once and do not know where you've seen) and passwords (that can have several accounts) saved and gata.foarte rapid.singura condition is to write the first right, and have a strong firewall you can not access that way not by hackerii.in
    to write the password every time you log on a trail site

  5. I do not recommend checking the "remember me" option because in fact the option in question is a cookie that can be malicious to your PC and can be exploited by the sites you browse. Or if you check always delete the entire history when close the browser

  6. par: I recommend to check the "remember me" for the option in question is actually a cookie which may be malicious for PC and can be exploited by websites who simply checking navighezi.sau always delete history completely when you close the browser

    You're right some time ago, I downloaded from the ODC from other people's PCs the folder from C: \ Program Files \ Google \ Chrome \ Application and with the help of cookies I logged into their accounts on FaceBook, Gmail, Yahoo, Filelist and where they were still logged in. But now in the latest versions of Chrome the cookies are no longer saved in that folder, but are saved in a temporary folder in windows, but it's still one, I don't download that folder from one location, because I download it from another location. Chrome calls this step SECURITY.

    On this tutorial I have a problem.
    I reinstalled XP on my computer and now that I enter through Firefox to complete the Sign in to Yahoo window to open my mail, the “Remember password? Would do like to remember thr password… .on yahoo mail “.
    Not to mention that I went to Firefox to Tools-Options-Privacy. And Keep me logged in box is checked.
    Now when I check my yahoo mail every time I'm forced to write always put id and password.
    I put the addon Show / Hide passwords in vain.
    What must I do to take my Yahoo ID and password automatically?

  8. 1) You go in the right box where you type the password
    2) Right click and select "Inspect Element"
    3) You'll see a window like this:

    4) Where it appears: type = ”password”, double click on the word password and write what you want there instead of this word.
    5) If you look at the box where you typed the password and where there were dots and stars, now your password appears… Now you can copy it, change delete, etc.

    6) This method works in any web browser on any operating system.

    Are you sure you are using the computer with a user who has full rights to the system? Are you sure you are not using your browser in private browsing mode? In private browsing mode, the browser no longer offers to save passwords! Maybe it is set to start automatically in private browsing mode and not necessarily by you but by those who still use your computer.
    Can you check in the browser options Security tab if you tick remember password for sites then right click Exceptions same options and see whether Yahoo is added to that list, if you find on there means that the browser will offer to keep your mind passwords for all sites but not for yahoo so you will have to remove yahoo from the list of exceptions.

  10. Hi Adrian,
    I got the same problem as Entertainment. In Yahoo login box not hold ID and password.
    This situation was in Chrome 2 years but seeing that they took it and Yahoo.

  11. ANDREW: 1) You go in the right box where you type the password 2) Right click and select "Inspect Element" 3) You'll see a window like this:

    that's how I suffered and in fact what was the figure. just like in the case of mobile phones I sell, you memorize someone's number several times…. namely that you have memorized the password several times and it no longer recognizes it. delete all that are associated with the account from the tools security options saved passwords and next time you will be asked to memorize the password

  16. Hello,
    Thanks, I tried but to no avail voasatre advice.
    In conclusion:
    When I inserted ID in Sign in to Yahoo and others I do not automatically appear mail IDs that I, as I appeared before.
    Before you were already clicking on the field ID and I show yahoo ids list where I choose my one click then appear automatically chosen ID and password
    Now you have to write each ID in hand to check my mail on yahoo.
    The problem is that I no longer retain yahoo these IDs automatically.
    I no longer appears in the left window screen or yahoo that asks me "Remember password / want to store the password for yahoo?"
    I want to defend my IDs automatically as before.

    if you removed all the passwords associated yahoo account (may have several yahoo accounts) should have happened so mearga.eu with Facebook ul.da a reset firefox, and if all else fails go look here http://www.comodo.com/home/browsers-toolbars/icedragon-browser.php a browser that is based on the techniques of mozilla actually an exact copy but it is light and faster
