To do this prank/hack you need to get acces to your victims computer.
This privilege can be attained by either waiting untill they leave, mind control... well the posibilities are endless be creative.

The pic is because i don't like a step without pictures.

Step 2: Open the browser.

Now i may not have mentioned this (being the living infomercial that i am) but for this
to work the person needs to be running firefox, now this usually isn't a problem given many
people have come to their senses in the new age and have upgraded to firefox but anyhow
you need to open up firefox.

Step 3: Execution

since this is the 30 second password hack it seems fit that it be sown in
30 seconds or less so here it is all in one step.(with many pictures)

1- Tools_options

2-Show passwords
and since every instructable needs a big arrow........

3-show passwords

4-look at passwords (not mine)

Step 4: Use Protection Kids

Now every big discovery has it's flaws, this ones flaw being a plus.
so if you want to protect yourself from this tragedy theres one more step with
3 sub steps!

-1 Go to options.

-2 Press change master password

-3-change master password.

Now once you have done this there is a VERY minor drawback(which can also be a plus) you have to type in your password to use the internet, but the plus side of that is that your parents cannot see what you've been up to.(looking at how to make explosives in my case)

Anyway i hope you enjoyed and please vote. =)
