I forgot my Master Password. 
With: Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Certificates -> Manage Security Devices ->
Software Security Device -> Change Password

i can change it. But it's not possible to reset it.
Also the reset Button on chrome://pippki/content/pref-masterpass.xul doe's not work.
The question about the master password pop's up every time i will login on an
https site, wiht every character i type. 

Reproducible: Always

Leave the 'new password' fields blank to reset it.
