Default Firefox password recovery

In the process of reorganizing all me apps and flash drives and tools and all that good stuff, I realized that I have no password recover app for Firefox. I did a quick search and have found a few different applications, such as Firepassword viewer and Firefox Password Recovery Tool, but I thought I throw it out there to see what experience or recommendations all of you had for these applications or other recommendations you might have.

Do you mean saved passwords in Firefox? Firefox already shows you saved passwords. It's in Tools -> Options -> Security -> Saved passwords

Holy Red Face! Now I do feel sheepishly embarrassed. My only excuse is not being a Fire fox user. Now, if I could just figure out how to I delete this entire thread before anyone else sees it.

Thanks for the assist on the rookie question.

Eh, no big deal.

I guess technically, you would want to have something that recovers Firefox's master password in case you ever come across someone that uses it (I never have....hence I have no idea what to suggest.)
