Hello, I had some Gmail accounts that with the help of Firefox remembered the passwords for them. But then some day it didn't show the accounts nor saved passwords when I tried to login there.

Now I can't remember the passwords and I'm panicking.

Chosen solution

Google has changed the URL of the login page to accounts.google.com and you will have to re-enter the name(s) and password(s) to make Firefox remember and fill them once again.

  • Tools > Options > Security: Passwords: "Saved Passwords" > "Show Passwords"

You can remove the older (duplicate) stored passwords from google.com after you have confirmed that the new entries work.
