Great job re: Finding those 8+breaches to which I was exposed bewteen 2016 and last week but how resolve it if
after the panic subsided, I contacted all 8 of the sites listed which of course I could not remember a single PW, and only 1 Site Admin was ready and willing to help me - thank you Cafe Press ! Part of my situation is that two of my three former email addresses were dropped when AOL bought Verizon's EMail Division and only let us bring 1 suitcase per person. Trouble is, the other two addys were sub accounts, one was a Business Account so much of the info was quite detailed but the same. But these days, data breaches are so comon (yawn?) it's almost not shocking. But 8 ? Yikes. Here's the thing, I thank you for the alerts, but you scare me to death then leave me hanging. I have no idea which 5 sites had the same PW (huh ?). I supposed over 20 years online and at 2500 logins, at some point my brain ran out of creative unique login's. I use a Password Program but it doesn't catch 3 email addresses that may share a common PW. Any suggestions how to "Resolve" those breaches which I can barely remember where I've left my britches ? Thanks. 5/2500 = .002 % P.W.s repeated , not the worst odds in the world. Spread that % over a 22 year span, the equation is so low there is an "e" in the final outcome !

Hi HollyFoxFire20, Mozilla does not have the passwords and, if it did, it would be extremely irresponsible to give them out. I don't think Mozilla's data partner (https://haveibeenpwned.com/) gives out passwords, either. So basically you have to make the best of each situation with limited information.
Your important current accounts should have unique, complex passwords.
If you are having issues with old/inactive accounts, those might not be water under the bridge now. If it's not possible for anyone to access that account at this point, I don't think there's anything to be done about it.
And I agree it's impossible to actively avoid reusing a password you can't remember. We all have that issue!
