Upgrading to Thunderbird 3 on Windows broke my master password. Thunderbird knows it is there, but rejects the password that I've used for years. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Upgrade to version 3 2. Launch 3. Enter old password 4. T'bird can't access data with correct password, so it keeps asking Actual Results: Thunderbird keeps asking for password. If I go into options, it says my password is incorrect. This is critical because it renders security data inaccessible (potentially destroyed, I don't know).

Yes, a reset seems to solve the problem. I figured there must be an easy way to delete all the old records. Thanks for the pointing the right direction. I'm still not sure if this was a freak coincidence or if others will see this behavior as well.
