Software: Firefox form history

It would be a neat idea to view values stored by Firefox's form completion feature. Then I could reuse text that I've previously entered in our local bug database form and make my reports more consistent. In Windows, Firefox saves form information in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\random.default\formhistory.dat. Unfortunately, that file is encoded in some proprietary XML database format and there is no reader (other than Firefox) for it. All I can do is delete all entries or delete individual entries using Shift-Del. It would be nice to have an editor like the Password or Cookie Manager. Dream on.
