Hi, I was wondering if someone can assist me.#
I am quite new to delphi.
I am trying to create a basic application to allow me to view my usernames and password on my computer then show them in a message,.
I have my settings to change my passwords every 90days and it gets quite fustrating when I have to keep tracking them down.
Now on firefox I can normally do this by, clicking options, then secuirty then saved passwords then I can see my usernames and passwords with the websites they belong to so all good.

Now how would I go about reading the file without going through all the menus on firefox or ie ect..  
I really dont want to download and use the ready made programs available as the whole point I want to do this is to create my own with help and support from you guys.

any help would be great.

So...  something like on button1 click then show passwords, usernames and site for them in a message?

I am aware of this http://www.nirsoft.net/password_recovery_tools.html
and dont wish to use a ready made program i want mine for me and very simple and basic, getting my other details would be great such as msn hotmail internet exporer ect..    I can password protect my delphi application so thats fine.
