The master password protects all your stored passwords. If you are prompted to choose a brand-new master password (you have to enter it twice and also there"s likewise a password toughness indicator), you can just perform that, or you deserve to enter a empty one. Builds founding 08/28 have actually a blank master password by default.However, if you are prompted to enter your formerly preferred grasp password (simply one line to enter it) and you don"t remember your understand password, you need to get rid of it. You can try a 08/28 or newer develop, which has some new defense UI in Options-Advanced-Certificates, or try chrome://pippki/content/pref-masterpass.xul; you have to manually copy this to the resolve bar.Or you delete (move it to somewright here else) key3.db in your profile.

I simply downloaded the 8/30 nightly for OSX, and it does not have the grasp password function. Will this be added to the OSX builds?
