No, I didn't.
Still the same password I used when I was forced to change my password.
I also did not restart Firefox at all.

Just cleared out all the FF files that came up following the link you posted.

The next option there was to clear all cookies on FF, but I didn't take that step since it would have wiped out all the auto logins I had for all the other websites I automatically access every day or so.

Years ago, I "blindly" followed instructions like that and ended up with more of a mess than I tried to fix in the first place, so now I tread carefully before deleting files etc.
