FireMaster, The Firefox Master Password Recovery Tool

Written by on October 12, 2006 in Utilities - 5 Comments

Firemaster is the Firefox master password recovery tool. If you have forgotten the master password, then using FireMaster you can find out the master password and get back your lost signon information. It uses various methods such as dictionary, hybrid and brute force techniques to recover the master password from the firefox key database file.

Firefox uses master password to protect the stored signon credentials. Now if you have set this master password and forgotten , that means you have also lost the authentication details for various websites which has been stored in firefox signon database. So far there was no way to recover these credentials once you have lost the master password.
Download Firemaster [Binary] or [Sources], Gecko SDK required to build from sources.

    Gecko SDK is required only if you want to build from sources, otherwise the binary is enough.
    Usage from command line, run FireMaster.exe and it will show you help screen. Here is some sample usage :
    // Only dictionary crack
    FireMaster.exe -q -d -f dictfile.txt firefox_profile_dir
    // Only hybrid crack
    FireMaster.exe -q -h -f dictfile.txt -c 3 -l “123” firefox_profile_dir
    // Only bruteforce crack
    FireMaster.exe -q -b -n 6 -a “abc123″ firefox_profile_dir
    // Dictionary crack followed by bruteforce crack
    FireMaster.exe -q -d -f dictfile.txt -b -n 6 firefox_profile_dir
    // Hybrid crack followed by bruteforce crack
    FireMaster.exe -q -h -f dictfile.txt -c 3 -l “123” -b -n 6 -a “abc123″ firefox_profile_dir
