Reset Master Password: If you lost or forget master password then there is easy way to disable master password feature from Mozilla thunderbird. But note one thing that “By resetting master password will remove all information of stored password”.
Choose Tools -> Error Console, paste the expression: openDialog("chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul") and press the Evaluate button. That will open a dialog asking you if you want to reset your password.
If your master password still not reset by above procedure then you need to use Email password recovery software to reset your lost password.
