If you aren't concerned about someone looking over your shoulder and stealing your passwords, why hassle with those obfuscated password fields, where you never know whether you typed your 30 character code correctly or not...
This extension shows the contents of password fields in cleartext (instead of the asterisks), to make that process a bit easier.
1.0 – 3.0b3
Since Version 1.1 password fields are only converted to text fields during the time they have focus. This means that this extension is now fully compatible with extensions that rely on the existence of the password field (like the Password Manager).
Version 1.2 — February 15, 2008 — 9 KB
Compatibility Update for FF3.
The unhide feature can now be quickly disabled by double-clicking on a password field.
