To check it out, go to Tools, Options and then the Security Tab.  Then click on the “Saved Passwords…” button under the Passwords section. 

The rest of it is pretty self explanatory.  Type the phrase your looking for in the search box, and the list will get shorter. 

Lost a Bookmark in Firefox?

This weekend I made a big mistake, I accidently deleted one of my folders inside of my bookmarks. I looked around for help, but there was none to be found. How did I get this folder back?

Well, all you have to do is open the Bookmarks Manager (Click on Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks). Once you are in there, hit the Ctrl key and Z key to undo your last action. You can also go up and select Edit, then Undo. Now all you have to do is train your fingers not to be so twitchy.
