Browser Chrome password saved in plain text while Firefox and safari stored password in encrypted which I have done using CryptoJS

In Chrome browser save password stored in plain text while Firefox and safari stored password in my encrypted which converted using CryptoJS before submitting the form.

Username,Password and Client key are convert into MD5 and SHA1 using CryptoJS and concatenate all those strings and assign to password field and then submit the form when I do login in Chrome that time save password prompt show original password(plain text) while I login in Firefox that time save password prompt show as converted string in password field instead of plain text password.

I want to store password in plain text instead of converted string in sha1 and md5.

The Password Manager has always encrypted the login data. If you want this not to be, you can use another program/ add-on instead of the manager. There are also form-filling add-ons.

There were/are 'reveal password' type add-ons. But the data would still be encrypted in the profile folder.

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web Link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for what you want.

You could also export the login data using these programs; (Win) PasswordFox v1.58 - Extract the usernames/passwords stored in Firefox Copyright (c) 2008 - 2017 Nir Sofer

In the event that the passwords information is lost, you should record all information in a separate text file somewhere else on your hard drive, or written down. You can easily copy and paste if you need to do so. If you are concerned about someone else looking at that file, you can compress it using a password.
