No.  Your SL password is like any other password that you have for a remote service  (your banl account, PayPal, Amazon.com ....).  You are the only person who knows it.  If it were saved someplace, that would defeat the whole purpose of being a secure password.

However, if you know your username but have forgotten your password, go to the password recovery page. Enter your username and click Send Instructions to have instructions on how to create a new password sent to the email address connected to the account . You'll need to answer the security question you chose when creating your Second Life account. Be sure to check your junk mail/spam folder.

If you can't recall the answer to your security question, just contact Customer Support, preferably by opening a support case. You'll be asked to verify your identity and, working together, we can reset your security question.

Hello,

if you're using phoenix, there is a good chance you can find your password in a textfile or xml file in this folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR USERNAME\Application Data\Phoenix

 

(on windows 7: C:\users\YOUR USERNAME\appdata\roaming\Phoenix

 

As far as I can tell this won't work with the latest official and Firestorm viewers anymore.
