I have my firefox account on 2 computers. In one of the two, I've suddenly lost all my saved passwords. I noticed that after a firefox update, there's an extra installation folder (now at C:\Program Files(x86) and the "old" installation was at C:\Program Files. How do I copy the saved passwords file from one folder to another? By the way, all my saved passwords are shown perfectly on the other computer... is there a way to migrate them?

Thanks

(Windows 10, Firefox 63.0)

I never had a firefox account till now. So, I had to reset the pc where i had all my logins. I once had to export my passwords (exporting key4 and logins.json files) and it worked, so i didn't think to much about it. So i reset the pc without cheking if the passwords actually worked (yuh, my bad). The problem is that apparently mozilla doesn't recognize the files, or something, cause when i open "Logins and passwords" it's empty. I don't know what to do, please help me.

I checked the only other response that I see (about:preferences#security), which I cannot enter as a URL.

I lost all of my logins/passwords tonight, after reinstalling v 66.0.2. I created a couple of passwords, including here. They are NOT in my saved logins. That has never happened before.

I always save logins. And I always update my logins when I change them.

This is becoming tedious.

Thank you.

This is linux so the AVG problem doesn't apply.

I purchased a new iMac after 9 years on a MacBook running the last installable version of Firefox: v48. Passwords were not migrated, so have all been lost. All help topics address *.json topics in Profiles. But the old version only has directoryLinks.json and frequencyCap.json files. Possible to restore from such an old version? If not, sadly, I must revert to using Safari. Bye bye Firefox.

My passwords vanish each week, or vanish when I am in GAME mode

Something is deleting my passwords in FF. Mostly when my laptop is in sleep mode, or when in game mode without the firewall set to game mode. But as is, if I use the firewall to stop everything behind, there is still something that starts and deletes my passwords when it think I am not using the laptop... Is there something that will protect the passwords in FF? Anyone got an idea of what can be doing this?

I am not visiting bad websites, I surf carefully, Windows is always up to date, as is my firewall and antivirus program. I have not downloaded any programs. It all started after my update of the program System Mechanic was done. So now I am in a support war with them, but they say I am the only one with this problem... I'm getting an ulcer here... :-(

Any ideas out there on what can be the problem or having a solution?

after the ubuntu 18.04.4 firefox update to 74.0 my passwords seams totally lost. No ask for my master password as I visited a login site. Going to menue passwords, I was asked for my master password, and after entering, my password storage was empty. After a very long time, it seamed as my passwords are back again, but they where not complete, only 271 where back. On an very old system, from which I had transferred the firefox profile to the system now in use, I had had 413 passwords and I had had to create a lot more since this clone. After update to 74.0.1 again, at first passwords where completely lost and now again, lots of them where missing. What was astonishing was, on the old system key4.db is 294912 Byte (and no logins.json), now key4.db is 720896 B (logins.json 141519 B) but for sure lacking lot of information!
