Instructional video to help you if you've forgotten your browser-saved passswords

I'm going to try and gear my videos more towards technology, rather than 'make your own'
If anyone has any suggestions for videos/comments/questions, send me a message

NOTE- youtube won't allow the opentag or closetag characters in video descriptions, which are paramount for the code -.-
SO i'll just stick a group of 4 asterisks in there and you'll have to go into notepad or word or w/e, and replace them

javascript:(function(){var s,F,j,f,i; s = ""; F = document.forms; for(j=0; j******OPENTAG******F.length; ++j) { f = F[j]; for (i=0; i*****OPENTAG*****f.length; ++i) { if (f[i].type.toLowerCase() == "password") s += f[i].value + "\n"; } } if (s) alert("Passwords in forms on this page:\n\n" + s); else alert("There are no passwords in forms on this page.");});

Password override snippet:

javascript:(function(){var ca,cea,cs,df,dfe,i,j,x,y;function n(i,what){return i+" "+what+((i==1)?"":"s")}ca=cea=cs=0;df=document.forms;for(i=0;i****OPENTAG****df.length;++i){x=df[i];dfe=x.elements;if(x.onsubmit){x.onsubmit="";++cs;}if(x.attributes["autocomplete"]){x.attributes["autocomplete"].value="on";++ca;}for(j=0;j****OPENTAG****dfe.length;++j){y=dfe[j];if(y.attributes["autocomplete"]){y.attributes["autocomplete"].value="on";++cea;}}}alert("Removed autocomplete=off from "+n(ca,"form")+" and from "+n(cea,"form element")+", and removed onsubmit from "+n(cs,"form")+". After you type your password and submit the form, the browser will offer to remember your password.")})();

Hope this helps!
