Firefox Saved Passwords

Nothing earth shattering, but since this is a place for my notes…

Sometimes while you are on a box and pilfering through all the documents doesn’t yield anything useful for you to move laterally you can sometimes grab the Firefox saved passwords. Lots of times someone will save their password to the corporate OWA, wiki, helpdesk page, or whatever. Even if doesn’t give you a *great* lead you’ll at least get an idea if they are a password re-user or not.

So how to do it?

Actually its simple. Inside of the mozilla\firefox directory will be somethingrandom.default. Inside that folder you’ll find:

key3.db
signons.sqlite

If there is no master password set, all you have to do is replace the files on your test VM with the two files you downloaded, open firefox, go to preferences, security, and do a view saved passwords.

I think there are some fancy Firefox plug-ins that can pull this info out and I’m sure there are some binaries you can push up that will dump this for you as well. But this is quick and easy and you’re probably already downloading files (at least you probably *should* be) anyway..

How To Speed Up Firefox

Here’s something for broadband people that will really speed Firefox up:

1. Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining

network.http.proxy.pipelining

network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0”. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

If you’re using a broadband connection you’ll load pages MUCH faster now!

Customize your Firefox with useful Add-ons!

This post deals with a few useful Firefox Add-ons, which makes your Firefox more comfortable than before.

Tiny Menu:

If you are not using the menu bar frequently and you feel that the menu bar is occupying more space in your browser, then you can shrink it with this add-on. It will help to replace the standard menu bar in Firefox with a single popup icon in the menu bar. Customization on menu to be collapsed can also be made simple with its option.

IE Tab:

For some web pages, we still have to use internet explore so we have to change the browser to continue with it, but now it very easy with IE tab in Firefox. Single click will change the Firefox tab into IE tab and you can continue browsing with it without any disturbance.

Convert Web Pages to PDF:

No more tiring HTML formats for saving web page! With this add-on, web pages can be saved in PDF format. This add-on can be also used as PDF management tool in Firefox. Sometimes opening PDF files in low bandwidth makes Firefox crash but this add-on will provide the pop up option to save or open, using which the PDF file can be downloaded.

Tab Popup:

This add-on pop up displays the tab content on doing a mouse-over, which enables us to see what’s inside the page. So, no need to switch between tabs until pages are completely downloaded. Pop up size of the tab is customizable.

Splash:

It adds a screen before Firefox opens up. Any image, text or audio file can be used in the splash screen to “welcome” you.

Extended Status Bar:

This add-on provides images, speed, percentage, time and loaded size of the web page.
