AS I asked the question, I realized that was going to be your answer. I don't know how to help her get untangled. So thanks anyway.

Appleologist :

The best way for her to view all of her passwords is to use keychain access. It holds all of her passwords for applications and internet logins and passwords. She can view the passwords and then change them

Appleologist :

I wish there was an easier solution but she will have to change her passwords individually

Customer:

I don't use the key chain so I can't help her. How does she get to her keychain?

Appleologist :

If you click on the apple logo in the upper right corner, type in Keychain access. Let me know when it is open so I can walk you through further

Appleologist :

Im sorry, click on the magnifying glass in the upper right corner and type in keychain access

Customer:

Now in the box, you will see a series of information. You can scroll down and look under internet password. (Under Kind) When she finds the site she wishes to view the password XXXXX double click on it. A box will then pop up.
