Mozilla Firefox can save passwords of any site you visit to make it easier to sign in the next time you return to the website by filling out the credentials automatically.

Although saving passwords in the browser is a convenient feature, sometimes you may need to view a specific password to update your account information on the website, or because you have to sign in to the same service on another device.

Whatever the reason it might be, if you can’t remember a password, similar to Edge and Chrome, Firefox includes access to view and delete saved passwords within the browser settings on Windows 10.

In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to view the password from a website you saved in Firefox.
