Sorry but you are able to find the password. No alternatives except manually entering password.

These passwords are erased from hard-disk. It will better to inform you that your personal datas like passwords and settings created by you own , are saved only in your hard-disk and when you uninstall firefox or reset that ,all datas get erased permanently from hard-disk. and ofcourse no backups was created for them for security reasons. SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT FETCHING ILLEGEL ACCESS USING YOUR PASSWORDS.

Please look on your desktop. Is there a folder called Old Firefox ?


These can't get your data back, but will help in the future.

These add-ons can be a great help by backing up and restoring Firefox

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) {web link} FEBE allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions, history, passwords, and more. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up -- It will actually rebuild your saved files individually into installable .xpi files. It will also make backup of files that you choose.

There are alternatives, but the lazy programmers won't fix the reset parameters.
