It doesnt work for me. Win XP and Win 7 too.

I suspect the reason people are claiming this doesn't work is because they are using the proprietary software that came bundled with their wifi card. This only works if you allow Windows to control your wireless network profiles.

Also you need to be doubly aware that most Anti Virus products will see this utility as a threat.
While Nirsoft CAN be trusted, it would be a dangerous tactic to download this from a third party site where it could be re-packaged to include nasties.

Works great here. It only displayed my login password in the table, but switching to ASCII mode revealed my WEP encryption keys, as well as other details.


Nirsoft certainly offers useful apps! I use their Metar Weather every day. Nirsoft's Wireless Network Watcher is quite handy, too, because in addition to my home router, there's a free public one in my vicinity; it's often flakey when under heavy use, but thanks to Nirsoft, I can check on the conditions in advance.

NirSoft has great software, of which I use many different Apps that are so very helpful. When I have a problem or even if I'm just trying to find something NirSoft is usually my first stop to see what they have in the way of Software to help me find, fix, or understand something I'm trying to do. Thanks so much for the many years of help I have received from NirSoft, I'm always amazed at the new things that become available to make my life easier along with many other people. Thanks again Nirsoft.

PasswordFox v1.58

PasswordFox is a small password recovery tool that allows you to view user names and passwords stored by the Mozilla Firefox Web browser. By default, PasswordFox displays the passwords stored in your current profile, but you can easily look at the passwords of any other Firefox profile. For each password entry, the following information is displayed: Record Index, Web Site, User Name, Password, User Name Field, Password Field and the Signons filename.

If a "master" password has been set, this must be entered before information can be viewed.

A 64-bit version is available (for use with Firefox 64-bit and Waterfox).

This has been flagged as malware by AVG and other programs.

AdrianK_IT on 2012-05-05 13:30

This is one of the NirSoft utilities, and trustworthy. It is flagged as malware as it clearly can be used for malicious reasons ie extract passwords for nefarious purposes. However, it can also be used for good reasons ie extract passwords for recovery purposes etc!
I have learnt to temporarily disable 'real time protection' in AV software when downloading/moving/using these utilities.
I also use them as a simple test of AV software effectiveness; if it doesn't pick up these utilities as potentially malicious, then the AV software is clearly useless!

ixz on 2014-05-06 15:20

anyone got this working together with firefox portable? i read that it is possible when pointing to the profile folder but it just fails here.
