    Default "master password" in Firefox

    Hello all,
    I accidentally locked myself out of many of my passwords in Firefox by creating a "master password" and then forgetting it. Just knowing that anybody could go into my Firefox preferences and hit "show passwords" bothered me. I know that I made the password something simple, should be easy to crack, so it would be easy to remember. I searched google and only came up with Windows software to break the passwords. I'm wondering if BT3 has anything or anything available for it to crack these passwords. Thanks.

    Go to google and type "Download Firefox Password Recovery Master 1.0". It should work.

    That software is for Windows. My password is locked with Firefox in Linux however. I could copy some user files over to windows which are probably the same no matter which os. Which files should I copy over, or is there a different solution?

    Just delete your /user/.mozilla/firefox folder and start over.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
