    First you will need Firebug installed (which you can get on hxxp://getfirebug.com/).

    This is a development plugin, very useful if you are a web developer.. you can use it to see the source of the website you are browsing and change it's styles to see the live preview of how it will look after you make your changes..

    Anyway, to display the password all you have to do is:

    - right click on the password field (the password should be inserted and you should see those circles)
    - click on "Inspect Element"
    - change the input type from password to text
    - press the enter key
    - look at the password

    It's that easy :eek:
