Few days ago, I click on Most Visited, right click Facebook and select Forget about this site. Of course, all of my history, bookmarks and 6 saved passwords are gone

Yesterday, I installed LassPass add-on, and only import Firefox saved password

When I open Firefox, goto Facebook, all of my 6 password are appeared

So, my question is, when I select Forget about this site, did Firefox remove my passwords completely?

Aparantly its buggy http://blogs.computerworld.com/the_forget_this_site_feature_in_firefox_3_5_is_buggy

But this guy has not tested passwords. I just tested password, it has delete all my google.com domain passwords.

BTW: I tested passwords being deleted by exporting them using password exporter extensions

Could you recover your deleted passwords using this extension? –  tuananh Jan 31 '10 at 7:53
