Help a burner out...

EDIT: Found the password, am dumb, am now trying to fix Chrome and hating Safari and our computer overlords.

Long ago, when I first happened upon these shores, I chose to make a burner account - this current account. I didn’t know I would be commenting here for years to come, didn’t think to make a kinja-specific email, and went with the easiest, most anonymous option.


A few years and several computer crashes later, and the virtual sticky note that held my burner key has disappeared. I can only log in on Google Chrome via my iPad or Macbook, and on my Macbook Chrome isn’t working well, AT ALL. I need to clear my cache and history, but that means clearing all my saved passwords as well.

So, is there any way to migrate from a burner to an email-linked account? And if not, has anyone done a sort of planned account switch in order to keep their posting privs?
