Can't turn off Vista Master Password for the software security device

I thought trying the Master Password would be a good idea, but it is such a pain in the *** to use, I tried to turn it off, BUT IT WON'T TURN OFF. How do I get rid of this monster?

    This is a Firefox feature--the problem doesn't exist in IE (ugh).

    Thanks--the reset option I had alrady tried, but it refused to acknowledge that my original password was correct, although it allowed me to click it off and log on (sometimes after entering each letter or number). the pippki etc cleared it. Thanks so much

Removing your master password

  • Firefox 1.5: "Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Passwords -> Remove Master Password"
  • Firefox 2.0: "Tools -> Options -> Security -> Passwords -> Uncheck "Use a master password". You will be prompted for your Master Password.
  • Thunderbird: "Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Passwords -> Remove Master Password"
If you have lost or forgotten your Master Password or you want to disable the feature, you can reset your master password. 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 gaining access to your passwords.
For Firefox you can also look at the Troubleshooting section in Password Manager.
  • Firefox: Enter "chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul" in the Location Bar, press Enter, then click "Reset"
  • Thunderbird 1.5: "Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Saved Passwords -> Master Password -> Reset Password".
  • Thunderbird 2: Choose Tools – Error Console, paste the expression: openDialog("chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul") and press the Evaluate button. That will open a dialog asking you if you want to reset your password.
  • For Mozilla Suite: "Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Master Passwords -> Reset Password".

Are ther amaster password for td 1232 if i forget the password?


What good would it be is there was a master password? That is something like having a save, knowing a master key can be owned by everyone.
A good security system takes care once a password is set, it can't be overruled.
