Mozilla Firefox is a web browser with features such as one-click bookmarking, tabbed browsing, easy customization and password management, according to Mozilla.com. Firefox allows you to save your password and login information for web services that require you to provide a user name and password to sign in. These passwords are saved and available to view and manage through Firefox's built-in Options panel. If you need to remove your passwords from Firefox for any reason, Mozilla Firefox makes it easy to fully remove your full password history to protect your privacy.
Open Mozilla Firefox on your computer and click "Tools" in the Firefox menu. Select "Options" from the Tools menu to open the Mozilla Firefox Options panel.
Select the "Security" tab from the top of the Options panel. The security tab holds options for viewing and configuring security settings and information for Mozilla Firefox.
Click "Saved Passwords" under the "Passwords" heading on the security tab. If your settings are protected by a master password in Mozilla Firefox, you may be required to enter it to view your password information.
Click "Remove All" to delete all of the saved passwords contained in Mozilla Firefox. Select "Yes" to confirm the deletion. Choosing this option will remove all of your saved passwords and force Mozilla Firefox to forget any saved login information.
Tips & Warnings
