I have forgotten my password. I know how to reset it but in doing so I may lose my bookmarks etc. Is there a way round this?

My Iphone needs the password to sync. Don't remember it. Don't want to lose my bookmarks on Mac.

On your Mac computer type about:logins in the URL bar and hit Enter. In Firefox Lockwise (the new logins manager) look for accounts.firefox.com - then where it says Password click on the "eye" to see your password for your Firefox Account.

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.
