Sorry pal, you are going to have to either (1) find your password, or (2) suck it up and go through Apple to reset it. If you think about it, that’s the only way a firmware password would make any sense. Otherwise, a miscreant could just reset it whenever they wished and gain access. Kind of like the screensaver password on a Mac.
