Need to Recover Passwords

I have perused the multitude of postings regarding passwords and the relevant issues of security. Nowhere have I found a simple solution to recovering/displaying passwords.

I have 57 sites/unames/pwords in my FileZilla XML file. For my security reasons I don't keep a printout of everyone's data.

Now, however, I am moving from PC to Mac and I need a way to recover all of this data as FileZilla is not Mac-patible.

Yes. I am using 2.2.29. Yes. I have gone through every possible setting.

Any ideas that don't involve downloading and installing hacksoft?

FileZilla itself does not offer the functionality to view the passwords. However decoding the passwords is quite simple, please have a look at

I would like this feature also. Coming from FlashFXP I'm used to being able to see all my passwords, but here I need to keep them in a seperate file somewhere, really annoying.
