how to get back my password from old version of mozilla firefox? I lost everything :((
Almost one week ago, my daughter updated my firefox and when I checked the new version, I realized that my whole passwords were lost and there were no record in my security profile. I checked the internet for solution, most of them suggested some files to import, but I dont have them. I need basic narration and instructions. I have some intercontinentinal projects, so I urgently need a solution. Thanks.
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:73.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/73.0
Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox? Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date.
Type about:profiles<enter> in the address bar. How many profiles are listed? How many should be there? Also, open the profile folder in your file explorer.
Does the about:protections page show that you still have logins stored (lok at the bottom of that page) ?
You can open "about:" pages via the location/address bar like you open a website/link.
- "about:" is a protocol to access special pages
