Mozilla Thunderbird Password Recovery


Gmail is still relatively new, but I still managed to lose my password. However, I have it stored in Mozilla Thunderbird. Is there a way to extract it from there?

That was almost too easy. Thanks for pointing that out to me.

It's so easy that if you leave your computer unattended,
someone else can do the same thing and get it.
