In Opera or IE, if I used "remember password," what do I do if the password changes?



On a couple of sites, I have chosen a "save password" or "remember password" option.

What if the password is reset? Would I get a chance to put in the right one?

I have a site or two where I have used such an option, and have since forgotten what password I oriiginally put in. Is there a way to recover it on my computer? What I have in mind is, I'd like to be able to use it if I were to log in from another computer, or if I have a hard drive problem at some time in the future which would wipe out the wand ability on the computer I most use.

I write down my passwords for every site:D
It is probably stored in one of your cookies. Once that's removed, your settings will be wiped. It sometimes gets wiped by itself so better be careful :D

They usually have 'click here if you've forgotten your password' link somewhere. They'll send you your password by email.
Another way is to make a new account;)

I write down my passwords for every site, too. Not that it does me much good.:(:(:(
