What is the easy solution of getting your saved passwords back after this last update?
After the last Firefox update all of my saved passwords words were wiped. I saw some technical changing files and resetting things. I need an easier path. I tried using a system update, but my laptop refused to do it. It keeps thinking the antivirus is on, when it is not. Please help!

Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox?
Type about:profiles<enter> in the address bar. How many profiles are listed? How many should be there?
In the event that the passwords information is lost, you should record all information in a separate text file somewhere else on your hard drive, or written down. You can easily copy and paste if you need to do so. If you are concerned about someone else looking at that file, you can compress it using a password.
Did you try to reboot the computer?
Do you have a logins.json.corrupt in the profile folder?
You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.

Windows: Show Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder
