    Hi Guys

    Hadn't used my laptop for a few monthes, last night I cranked it up to help someone who had Vista on their computer. Was using Firefox, and it asked me for the Master Password. I don't remember setting one in the first place, and all the ones I normally use didn't work. So I figured I would have to uninstall/re-install Firefox to start all over.

    Well, evidently even though you uninstall Firefox it keeps all the user info, as even the add-ons were still there in the new install as well as whatever master password I must have put on. Is there any way to delete all the passwords and start over? I've been searching around, and there is a way to do it with Thunderbird. But so far no luck with Firefox.

    Not sure if this can be answered or not, as it may be against forum rules. But sure hope not, don't want to have to use IE.
