About this Add-on
Working this way is fine if you are Firefoxing at the office or having 100% of your time people spying behind your back...
but since most of us are working at home, *Behind* The *Asterisks* can really ease up browsing, by doing one thing but very well, and that is adding a mouse over event for password-text-fields on your webpage, while the mouse arrow if over the password-field, it shows the content as a normal text field, you can view, edit, hey! you can also Copy-Paste a password-field content !
why the 'hey!' ? this is special, since password-field is naturally Copy-Shielded. Ever tried to copy the content of a password-field? you get nothing! or even less useful- you get real series-of asterisks (you really get •••••••••• or *********).
*Behind* The *Asterisks* will give you those benefits, and once mouse is outside, it will come back to show only Asterisks again (as normal..)
This Addon works on passwords you type now into the password-field, and the ones already been typed before and saved by Firefox, that are already showing in the password-field.
write your thoughts in the comments area, I read and answer most of the notes there.
