Problems with Gmail password in Chrome – Solution.

Initially posted on LinkedIn under my account on October 31, 2016.

Since over several weeks I had to change the passwords because due to many long days I did not remember the password. Nor the Google Chrome.

Last night, after a long day, I decided to check on internet if there is a solution to resolve this issue with Gmail and Google Chrome. Apparently, no clear solution or any recipe to resolve this issue did worked in my case. But, many of the threads of messages in Google message boards were locked on so no one could reply.

I tried to add my account using SQLite Browser but now way to set the password into a blob. I disconnected my account from Chrome and logged in again and no luck.

About two hours after midnight I decided to open my account in Mozilla Firefox and I saved the password there. And then I opened the Chrome and clicked Menu -> Settings

And then clicked Import and waited a bit and the process was finished. I opened the Saved Passwords and my new pass was there.

So, no third party tools needed just Mozilla Firefox and Chrome and issue is resolved.
