  1. Hello!
    Puffin browser stores passwords in passwordForms.dat in bytest starts from 0x0b after “” that is after “password” UTF8 string.
    Length of that bytes sequence is same as password length. Only single mapping of one byte to another. It not depends on login.
    For example, password “12345678” = [0x31, 0x32, 0x33, 0x34, 0x35, 0x36, 0x37, 0x38] transformed to [0x45, 0x46, 0x43, 0x47, 0x0F, 0x19, 0x18, 0x4F], but if set password with adding “9” you’ll have same with 0x4E at the end.
    But credential.dat not changing according count of passwords.
