    Can anyone add a keylogger in Firefox?

    I am having doubt on a friends pc. I was using that to access my facebook profile last night. This morning when I check I got a message that my account was accessed from some other location. Next thing I saw that I had liked a few post and photos. I remember that I had not done this. S

    o most probably there might be some kind of keylogger that is recording the password. I want to know that is it possible to add a keylogger in the browser. If yes then how to do that. I had seen in the control panel but I cannot find any software like that.

    Yes it is possible there are add-ons that can be added in the browser and through that one can record the keys of a person who is typing in the browser. You can find ample of them online. Like Keylogger Pro - New.

    This one is a simple add-on that works through the web browser. Whatever you type it will record the same. And you can lock this by adding a password. It works in the hidden form. I found this a very effective tool because I use this on my pc.

    So here you can go in the Tools > Add-ons section and see whether any keylogger is installed or not.

    The first thing you must do is simply change your password. So that in case if it is leaked you donít have to worry about the same. It is possible to use add-on or some kind of hidden service when you login to your web browser through someone else pc.

    They can simply add these things and pull your details and then mess with it. So the best thing you can do is use the browser in safe mode. You can use Internet Explorer rather in no-add-on mode so that if there is anything working it would be stopped. In this way it would be safer to access profiles.

    The keylogger password seems to be stored in the extensions.pass pref that you can inspect via the about:config page.
