My company just pushed out new group policies for Firefox that blocks use of Firefox Sync. That also, apparently, blocked use of my saved logins and passwords.

I can find the encrypted password files in my profile: key4.db logins.json

but I can't open them.

Is there any way to get my login and password information?

Unfortunately there not much that can be done here. Try this though:

Hi Mark, could you look at the about:policies page (type or paste that address to the address bar and press Enter to load it). On the "Active" list, what policies are being applied to your Firefox that might relate to passwords or logins?

There are some recovery tools that can "export" user names and passwords from logins.json + key4.db. Here are two options, assuming you aren't blocked from downloading software:

I think this is the relevant policy:

PasswordManagerEnabled false

Unfortunately, I can't install or run unauthorized software. But I guess I can copy the profile files to a non-work machine, then run the tools to extract all the logins and passwords on the other machine.

Assuming Firefox is still aware of the files, i.e., it can access the contents of those files despite the policy, you may be able to dump out the list using this old script:

That would probably work, except that the config settings are locked, so I can't set devtools.chrome.enabled => true

<SIGH>

How about installing Firefox on another device (phone or home pc) and logging into sync to get your data.
