Here I am again. Can anyone tell me where I can find my saved passwords ? I'm using firefox, but with XP I could go Tools > Options and get to them. Not the same with the iMac.

I've been trying to use skydrive for mac, but it won't take my password. I know it's correct but I tried to reset and this is the message I got.

"
You can't complete that task here

To continue, you need to go to your organization's web site."

Any clues much appreciated.

Pete.

Go to Applications/Utilities
Open Keychain Access
Find the thing you need your password for and double-click on it
Check the Show Password box
Enter your User Password
Voila!

Hey thanks for that. It's probably old hat to you, but to me it's brilliant.

Now for that weird message I got from MS; anyone got any ideas ?

You can also try this one:

Click FIREFOX -> Options -> Security -> Saved Passwords.

If you want to see the saved ones: Click SHOW PASSWORDS

Actually, the only part of that which I had any prior knowledge of was that the answer would be found in Keychain Access. I just opened it up. The rest I discovered easily due to the intuitive nature of Apple-developed software. Aren't Macs great?!
