    Do you mean something that unmasks password fields?

    Well, not really, its should show like recently typed passwords in a certain password box once you do something to that box. or just a thing where it would show every password typed in a certain number of passwords

    I don't understand what you mean. Do you mean like in IE if you log into a forum or email site or what be it, and if you have two accounts that are saved in IE a drop down comes up asking which account you want to use? (Mozilla does this also)

    If so, there are Password manager programs out there. I can recommend some if your interested. Be careful though, some have spy ware.

    Example: I was to type in my e-mail screename for msn and then my password. once that went thru, I checked my mail, and then got off the computer. now lets say about 15 minutes later, my dad got on the computer and opened a program to where he can find out what password I had type in that 15 minutes ago. I hope this helps a little more

    Well, the only way for him to see your password is if you had a key logger program. That logs every key stroke. Other then that you'd have to get a password manager program that stores the password and asks you which user name / password you want to use.

    I don't know. Run ad-aware after you install it.
