How to reset your forgot Firefox Password

Firefox is a free and open source web browser descended from the Mozilla Application Suite and managed by Mozilla Corporation. As of May 2011, Firefox is the second most widely used browser with approximately 30% of worldwide usage share of web browsers.

In a safe and secure manner, Firefox can store usernames and passwords that you use to access sites on the web. When you access a site for which Firefox has stored your username and password, Firefox automatically fills in the appropriate fields for you.

While you forgot the password that you entered there, there is no way of simple looking into a file.

Here is some ways for you to reset your forgot password.

Reset the Master Password in Firefox:

Open Firefox and paste the following line into the address bar:

Chrome://pippki/contend/resetpassword.xul


A text will appear saying that if you reset your master password all login derails including usernames, passwords and websites will be lost. If you click on Reset the master password is reset which means that you can enter a new one, Cancel would be the other option.



Brute Force the Master Password in Firefox:

You can use a software called Firefox password Recovery. It is a smart and powerful utility to recovery passwords to web sites saved in Firefox Web Browser and Thunderbird. This tool can get the list of all usernames and passwords saved in Firefox Web Browser with only one button click!


Brute Force will most likely succeed if the master password consists of an existing word, words or name.

How to use it, please follow me:

Step 1: To get a list of all passwords stored by Firefox Web Browser, press "Start Recovery" button and select Recovery Firefox Password menu item.


Step 2: The passwords together with their Website URL and User name will be displayed.

Firefox is a very popular web browser that enables you to search and navigate the web. It allows you to run a number of components, such as toolbars, download managers and video players, to enhance your browsing experience. However, you can run into occasional display problems and crashes that require some troubleshooting. With some simple guidelines, repair common Firefox problems and improve your browser.

Print or write these directions down before proceeding. Close down Firefox and click the Windows Start menu on the desktop. Select "All Programs" and navigate to the "Mozilla Firefox" folder. Click "Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)" in the folder. This launches Mozilla Firefox Safe Mode. In Safe Mode, you can repair Firefox issues. Select the areas you want to repair on the "Safe Mode" window. For example, select "Reset toolbars and controls" if you want to remove third-party toolbars. Select "Disable add-ons" if you want to disable plug-ins such as download managers. Click the "Make Changes and Restart" button to repair the web browser. Restart your web browser normally after you complete the repair process. Step 5. Uninstall and reinstall Firefox if you are still having problems with it. To do so, go to the Mozilla Firefox download page and click "Free Download" (see Below). http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ie.html When prompted, click "Save" and save the browser installation file on your desktop. Click the Windows Start menu and click "Control Panel." Double-click "Add or Remove Programs" to launch the programs list if you are using Windows XP. For Windows Vista and 7 users, launch the programs list by clicking "Programs" and clicking "Programs and Features." Click "Firefox" and click "Remove/Uninstall" to remove the web browser from your computer. Double-click the Firefox installation file you downloaded in Step 5 and click "Run" to reinstall the web browser on your computer.

Always use Download Manager to download anything from net except from sites like rapidshare,megaupload etc.They don't support Download Manager as they are file hosting server. 

I recommend you use "Orbit Download Manager" as it is completely free and it support video download from sites like youtube.com etc

Here is the download link from whwre you can downalod Orbit Downloader

That's it.

Make Sure your system is free from virus, trojans or spyware or adware, they slow down the system as well as consumed Internet bandwidth too.Scan your PC with a Good Antivirus but I recommend you to use any Internet security suite.
