I recently got a new laptop and was trying to get Mozilla Weave set up on it and I could not remember my passphrase. So I went to the site to see if I could recover it and could not. They will reset it and delete all of your data when you do. After that you have to resync from one of your working versions. My problem was that my only current working version was my desktop at work which was shut down due to me being on vacation.
Now today I’m back from vacation and I was wondering if there was some way to retrieve my passhprase. After searching my profile folder I realized, maybe they just use the password system built into FireFox. And sure enough there were two entries for weave.
After finding it in your list it just takes hitting “Show Passwords” to retrieve it. If you’re like me and have a Master Password set you will have to enter it again at this point.
