Sorry, I have no idea how to login to their website. It worked just fine a year
ago with accounts created with megareg. Maybe you have some special unicode
characters in your password, that the website is interpretting differently.

I'm not sure what a recovery key is. I haven't really tracked changes in mega's
API since they removed documentation for it.

All you need for recovery is to save the password somewhere. The master key
is derived from it. There was no "recovery key" when I wrote megatools.
