    I've got a ton of login's and passwords saved under "Options/Security/Saved Passwords"

    What I want to know is where is this file so I can edit the PW or the URL???

    As it is now the only thing you can do is delete it and then go to the site and login so
    FF will save the new login.

    Starting in Firefox 3.0, this information probably is stored in the signons.sqlite database file. In addition to Firefox's native UI, you might be able to work with these files using a SQLite browser (I've read about them, but not actually used one), or perhaps you can find an extension that has the functionality you want.

    Thanks for the info... once I knew what to look for I found it and did
    a little research --- FF has a plugin for reading databases.

    I'll try it out later tonight.

    Here's a follow-up on that FF addin/plugin... was of no use at all.

    Oh it showed all the url's but the ID and PW were a encrypted.

    On to plan "B" or is that "C"!?

    Instead of using FF to store passwords (FF password storing is not very secure) try using a 3rd party pass word app. Last Pass is a very highly rated app that does have a plug in for FF. Each time you sign into a site using the password stored in FF, Last Pass will ask if you wish to save this site. The passwords are encrypted and can actually auto fill or auto signon. You will just need to remember one Master Password to enable Last Pass.
