Due to a recent major security breach I started changing all of my passwords on my main desktop, I did not have sync on at the time. I then opened up my work laptop (again unsynced) and decided I should really use the sync feature to transfer my 500+ passwords onto my laptop for when I travel.

When I got home that evening, I turned on the sync feature on my main desktop, unfortunately it pulled all of my compromised passwords from my laptop and overwrote the ones on my main desktop. Is there anyway to restore my pre-sync passwords and ensure that they get transferred to my laptop instead please.

Firefox keeps a logins-backup.json file in the profile folder that keeps a backup of the last changes made. You can check if you can find this logins-backup.json file in the profile folder or in a backup and if it still has the modified logins.

Make sure to keep a backup of the current logins.json and logins-backup.json and key4.db before replacing logins.json with logins-backup.json with Firefox closed.
