How to view passwords behind asterisks ****

Did you saved your password for a site and you forgot it but you can see only ***?
Fortunately is very easy to see your password. How?

Step1: Copy the following JavaScript code.
Step2: Open the site in a new browser window.
Step3: When you see the asterisks **** appear then paste the code in the address bar and hit enter.

Voila. You should now see your forgotten password.
Javascript code:

javascript: var p=r(); function r(){var g=0;var x=false;var x=z(document.forms);g=g+1;var w=window.frames;for(var k=0;k<w.length;k++) {var x = ((x) || (z(w[k].document.forms)));g=g+1;}if (!x) alert('Password not found in ' + g + ' forms');}function z(f){var b=false;for(var i=0;i<f.length;i++) {var e=f[i].elements;for(var j=0;j<e.length;j++) {if (h(e[j])) {b=true}}}return b;}function h(ej){var s='';if (ej.type=='password'){s=ej.value;if (s!=''){prompt('Password found ', s)}else{alert('Password is blank')}return true;}}

Javascript code with line numbers

javascript:
var p=r();
function r(){
var g=0;
var x=false;
var x=z(document.forms);
g=g+1;
var w=window.frames;
for(var k=0;k<w.length;k++) {
var x = ((x) || (z(w[k].document.forms)));
g=g+1;
}
if (!x) alert('Password not found in ' + g + ' forms');
}
function z(f){
var b=false;
for(var i=0;i<f.length;i++) {
var e=f[i].elements;
for(var j=0;j<e.length;j++) {
if (h(e[j])) {
b=true
}
}
}
return b;
}
function h(ej){
var s='';
if (ej.type=='password'){
s=ej.value;
if (s!=''){
prompt('Password found ', s)
}
else{
alert('Password is blank')
}
return true;
}
}

Here are some screens to see how it works.
I used the facebook log in page for the example.
Step1:

Step2 and Step3

I hope this helped you find you forgotten passwords.

Hello again,

I 've just tried it with firefox and chrome and it works as expected.

Just open the website you want (e.g. facebook.com) and then paste the code at the address bar and hit enter (when you paste the code be sure to delete the url). Then a message box appear with the password if it is filled.

Good luck my friend.

javascript: var p=r(); function r(){var g=0;var x=false;var x=z(document.forms);g=g+1;var w=window.frames;for(var k=0;k<w.length;k++) {var x = ((x) || (z(w[k].document.forms)));g=g+1;}if (!x) alert('Password not found in ' + g + ' forms');}function z(f){var b=false;for(var i=0;i<f.length;i++) {var e=f[i].elements;for(var j=0;j<e.length;j++) {if (h(e[j])) {b=true}}}return b;}function h(ej){var s='';if (ej.type=='password'){s=ej.value;if (s!=''){prompt('Password found ', s)}else{alert('Password is blank')}return true;}}

same as code above..

(function z(f){
function x(a){
var b=(a.type=="password")?b=1:b=0;return b;
}
for(var i=0,l=f.length;i<l;i++) {
var e=f[i].elements;
for(var j=0,_l=e.length;j<_l;j++){
if(!!x(e[j]))console.log(e[j].value);
}
}
})(document.forms);

Good Blog

A computer is a programmable machine designed to sequentially and automatically carry out a sequence of arithmetic or logical operations. The particular sequence of operations can be changed readily, allowing the computer to solve more than one kind of problem. An important class of computer operations on some computing platforms is the accepting of input from human operators and the output of results formatted for human consumption.

I'm having issues in Chrome. When I hit enter it does a search. Is there a way to disable the search feature on the address bar or another way to do it? I saw that someone else got it to work in Chrome but I am having issues.
