thunderbird 1.5 master password

Post by bad_brain »

anyone an idea how to erase/reset the master password in Thunderbird 1.5?
I had a little "accident" and lost the actual one, but now I need to install a CA certificate so I can digitally sign my emails again (lost the old certificate because of a system crash).
I googled already for it and found a HOWTO on the Mozilla site which tells "what to do when lost the password"...but those dumbasses forgot to mention that you need to enter the old password to reset it...duh... :roll:
also I can´t find the key3.db-file which is supposed to include the pass... :?

for rainbow tables I would need the hashed pw... :wink:
but well, found the key3.db-file, damn XP search function skipped it, so I had to search it manually...erased it and could establish a new password then... :)
