Mozilla Master Password

By ERICE13 ·
Is there any possible way to retrieve my misplaced master password for the Mozilla Firefox browser? I moved in June 07 and didn't get Desktop P-C set up until Jan 08 (used lap-top alone for 7 mo) Now darn-it I can't remember the &*%$# password.

But is there any reason why you can't uninstall it and install it again?

TR members do not assist with password recovery.

The members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we the members of TechRepublic will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g. Windows XP password recovery issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, etc..

Wait, are you talking about several websites?

by The Scummy One In reply to What the H?

if so, you dont need to contact Mozilla, punch in your username and click on the I Forgot My Password link on those websites.

If you dont remember your username either, there are ways from each site that you can get through it.

I fear you have let 'Security' go to your head, or rather...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Mozilla Master Password

Escape from your head, in this case. :)

When you consider you can invoke the following:

1. BIOS setup password
2. Boot password
3. Hard disk drive password
4. Login password
5. Internet site access password

Why on Earth would you lock your browser?

Uninstall and reinstall Firefox, preferably to a different directory (in case the password remains within the Registry).

Go to:

Type in "Forgot my master password" in the search box. It will show you how to reset it.

Note: Resetting your master password will remove all of your saved usernames and passwords.
