I just noticed that my installation of TBB has lost my stored passwords. Also it can't save any new passwords or even set a new master password (there has been none). I'm not sure, but the problems seem to coincide with the installation of the latest version. I extracted the tar on top of the old installation. But I've done it like that before without any ill effect.
I'm using TBB 3.6.6 on Fedora 20
Follow-up on this:
Is it the
tor-browser_en-US/Data/Browser/profile.default/key3.db file that contains the saved password db? Because I ran a
db_verify on it and it gave the following
db_verify: BDB0210 key3.db: metadata page checksum error db_verify: BDB0522 Page 0: metadata page corrupted db_verify: BDB0524 Page 0: pgno incorrectly set to 3523477504 db_verify: BDB0525 Page 0: bad magic number 4096 db_verify: BDB0126 mmap: Invalid argument db_verify: BDB0530 Page 0: beyond the end of the file, metadata page has last page as 0 db_verify: key3.db: BDB0090 DB_VERIFY_BAD: Database verification failed BDB5105 Verification of key3.db failed.
Any way to rescue this file or at least get the usernames/passwords in a human readable form out of it?
