Firefox Password Manager and Master Password

Firefox comes with built-in password manager tool which remembers username and passwords for all the websites you visit. This login/password information is stored in the encrypted form in Firefox database files residing in user's profile directory.

However any body can just launch the password manager from the Firefox browser and view the credentials. Also one can just copy these database files to different machine and view it offline using the tools such as FirePassword.

 
Hence to protect from such threats, Firefox uses master password to provide enhanced security. By default Firefox does not set the master password. However once you have set the master password, you need to provide it every time to view login credentials. So if you lose the master password then that means you have lost all the stored passwords as well.
 
So far there was no way to recover these credentials once you have lost the master password. Now the FireMasterCracker can help you to recover the master password and get back all the sign-on information.
