PasswordFox is a tool that allows you to view passwords saved by Mozilla Firefox.
The program doesn't have to be installed and runs as a portable application. Your Windows registry keys remain unchanged and you can also place PasswordFox on an external device and run it on any computer.
Once you initiate the application, it will automatically display stored passwords in Mozilla Firefox. You can view the record index, website, user name, password, user name field, password field, sign-on file, HTTP realm, password strength and Firefox version.
Furthermore, you can select folders that contain other profiles. So, you can display their password information as well, once you have inputted the master password (if this is the case).
In addition, you can save the list of Firefox passwords into a standard, tab-delimited, comma-delimited or tabular TXT file, or export it to the HTML, XML or KeePass CSV file.
The program uses a very low amount of system resources, comes with a well-drawn 'ReadMe' file and didn't freeze or crash during our tests. However, the functions offered by PasswordFox can also be found in Firefox (and you don't need to install addons).
So, assuming you have forgotten your passwords and wish to retrieve them, directly using Firefox is simpler than accessing a third-party program (even if it's portable). The difference is that the web browser has a search function while PasswordFox allows you to export the entire list.
In conclusion, PasswordFox does a very good at showing you passwords saved by Firefox, but it doesn't bring major new features to the table.
