Does this article help you locate your passwords?

There are some walks you have to take alone.

@TheFifthPerson any other ideas?

I am watching this topic btw, I'm not ignoring you, I'm just struggling to think of a solution if your browser doesn't have your password saved anywhere. Hopefully what gmo suggested above will help.

Nope, for some reason firefox doesn't say my gfaqs password is saved, despite me being logged in automatically after I shut off my computer

If I open up a private window, my username populates, but not my password

Is it saved for gamefaqs.com or gamefaqs.gamespot.com?

I was sent the link by a concerned user just in case gmo's wasn't explicit enough.

@TheFifthPerson @gmo7897 , thanks for your help up until this point.

But since nothing is working, can I get a mod to reset my password (assuming that won't log me off) and pm me the new one? Or can a mod manually change my email address, so I can reset it myself? Is any of this possible? thanks

Moderators do not have anything to do with user accounts, so we can't do that, please see this help page as I think you'll find a solution for your issue here: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/help/54-account-issues

I hope that helps

My situation isn't covered on there unfortunately, but I filled out that feedback form. Thanks

Question, if I use the "change password" section under my account/my settings, could I ever be locked out/logged out of my account? I know you will get disabled if you do it and you're not logged in. But if I am logged in, can I just guess away with no penalties?
