Firefox is one of the most secure internet browsers on the market today.Firefox is a free downloadable browser that is available to all computer users no matter what computer they are using. However, many computer users are unsure of making the switch to Firefox for one reason or another.
There are many functions that the Firefox browser has to offer computer users.In which 3 functions are as follows:
1-Make Firefox remember usernames and passwords
When you enter a username and password Firefox hasn’t already stored for a website, it will ask if you want Firefox to remember them.
In the Remember Password prompt:
- To have Firefox remember your username and password, click Remember Password. The next time you visit the website, Firefox will automatically enter your username and password for you.
- If you’ve stored the wrong username or password, just type the right one into the website and Firefox will prompt you to save it. To save the new username and password, click Update.
- To tell Firefox to never remember usernames and passwords for the current website, click the drop-down menu and select Never Remember Password for This Site. In the future, when you log into the website you won’t be prompted to save the username and password.
- If you later change your mind and would like Firefox to ask you to save usernames and passwords for this site, you’ll need to remove it from the exceptions list using the Options window – Security panel.
- To skip saving your username and password this time, click the drop-down menu and select Not Now. You’ll be prompted to save your username and password the next time you visit the site.
2-Viewing and deleting passwords
You can easily manage the usernames and passwords that Firefox has saved for you.
- At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button (Tools menu in Windows XP) and then click Options
- Click the Security panel.
- Click Saved Passwords… and the Password Manager will open.
To see the passwords you have saved, click Show Passwords. When you close the window, your passwords will be automatically hidden.
Use the search box to find a particular website or username. Click the X in the search bar to clear your search and see the full list again.
To remove a username and password, select it from the list and click Remove.
To remove all stored usernames and passwords, click Remove All. After confirming this choice, all of your stored usernames and passwords will be deleted.
3-Find a Forgotten Password Saved in Firefox
Firefox, like many popular browsers, includes a built-in functionality to save your password. Often we’ll use the saved password feature so often that we’ve completely forgotten our password when we need to login to the same website on another computer. Here’s how to locate your saved password.
In Firefox, navigate to the Tools Options menu item. Select the Security button, the Passwords tab, and then click on View Saved Passwords. You’ll be presented with this screen:
Click the Show Passwords button, and navigate down to the website password you are looking for
