Can I look at my stored user name and passwords on the mobile version like I can on the desktop?

Posted

I have specific apps that need my login/password combination to gain access to my data. These always use the same account as on the web so if I don't know my password I can look it up on firefox (desktop version) by going to:

  options -> options -> security ->saved passwords

and showing the passwords. I would like to be able to look up these passwords on my phone or tablet running firefox for Android. The passwords ARE on my mobile via firefox sync -- I can use them on websites just fine, I just want to be able to explicitly view them when necessary.
