    Thanks for reply. I know there saved in there but this one isn't. Is there a plug-in to help me get it?

    You mean you chose to not save the password in Firefox, but you have a "remember me" cookie so you're always logged in?

    There's a program called System info for windows (just google siw) and there is a section that lists all your saved passwords across all programs in windows

    Guys, good grief. It's not saved in Firefox. A PROGRAM will not help him!

    What's the web site?

    Log out, click Log in on the left, and click "I forgot my password" and give it your email address.

    Worst case you could email whatever web site's support and prove your account somehow.
