How to reset master password in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.7

If you share your computer, using a master password is highly recommended, to prevent other users from accessing your stored passwords and logging onto your online accounts and services.

The solution to the problem

Follow the instructions to reset master password in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.7:

  1. 1

    Open Mozilla Firefox application on your computer.

  2. 2

    Type ‘chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul’ in the address bar.

  3. 3

    Press ‘Enter’.

  4. 4

    Click ‘Reset’.


If you have lost or forgotten your master password or you want to disable the feature, you can reset the master password. Resetting the master password will remove all stored password information. Upon resetting, you will lose all the stored information in the ‘Password Manager’, as this is a built-in security feature to prevent people from simply resetting your master password to gain access to your passwords.
