SeaMonkey 2.0 - Security Password? Where is it? Some how during a previous install and an issue with administrator rights with a user caused me to have to reinstall seamonkey 1.16 in order to retrieve all my passwords and bookmarks and address book. So the problem is when 2.0 is now installed and run it requests a password XXXXX I never ever setup during a previous installation. Because this is such a new security change with out it I will be forever limited to v1.16 unless 1.18 has the same security system methodology.

So With using reset which wipes out all current stored passwords how do I setup a new password?

Hi,

If you have lost or forgotten your master password XXXXX you want to disable the feature, you can reset the master password. Resetting the master password XXXXX remove all stored password XXXXX Upon resetting, you will lose all the stored information in the Password XXXXX as this is a built-in security feature to prevent people from simply resetting your Master Password XXXXX gain access to your passwords.

For Firefox, you can also look at the Troubleshooting section of the Password XXXXX article.

  • Firefox: Enter chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul into the Location Bar (address bar), press the "Enter" key and click "Reset".
  • Thunderbird 1.5: "Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Saved Passwords -> Master Password XXXXX> 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.
  • Mozilla Suite/SeaMonkey: "Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Master Passwords -> Reset Password".

Note: Upon initial installation, Firefox sometimes believes it has a master password XXXXX effect and the user is unable to change or remove it because the set master password XXXXX XXXXX to the user [2]. This situation sometimes occurs when a Mozilla Suite/SeaMonkey profile's passwords are imported into Firefox at install time. If this happens, reset the master password as explained above.

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
