Hello,

My protonpass manager and email accounts were compromised by a hacked Discord user. I began setting up the password manager in mozilla to help me with my passwords, but somehow mistyped the Master Password I was trying to set up. Now I have no idea what it is and need to reset it.

Thank you,

Did you try with and without Caps Lock in case you accidentally enabled it ?

Note that you lose all logins if you would reset the Primary Password as this password is used to encrypt the logins stored in logins.json in the Firefox profile folder.

You can backup logins.json and key4.db in case you want to try again.
