Well, on the 7th of November I closed my FireFox. After about 16 mins I wanted to open it again, I notice that I forgot the password and now I can't even reset the password, cause I closed firefox and now I have no access to it.

For security reasons, if you try to reset the Master Password, the password files will be deleted.

Ok, tell me what to do?

There is nothing we can do. Sorry  :-/

In the event that the passwords information is lost, you should record all information in a separate text file somewhere else on your hard drive, or written down. You can easily copy and paste if you need to do so. If you are concerned about someone else looking at that file, you can compress it using a password.

How can I type it in Firefox if I have no access to it? As you can see I already said that I forgot the password and they keep telling me to enter it before opening FireFox.

At least tell me a way of how can I reset Firefox. I uninstalled it and then installed it and it still asks me for a password. :/

I've been away.

Open your file browser to this location; Windows: C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\

In the current Profile Folder, rename these files by adding .old to them. key3.db and logins.json : These are the Password files. Rename Both !

Then try Firefox.
