Strange problem:

I somehow managed to forget both my password and secret question for my Gmail account so cannot access from a browser.
However it is plugged into Thunderbird so I can get mail through Thunderbird.
I want to be able to log in on other computers though.
Is there some way to pull the password from Thunderbird so I can see what it is?
