hi all mozilla did an update today and now all my saved logins and passwords have disappeared. I googled a few answers and it states to delete this file secmode.db. I cant find this currently. I have also been using mozilla firefox account which supposedly saves the details somewhere. Can anyone please point me in the right direct step by step to recover these missing logons details or how to restore them please.

By this, are you talking about sync?


Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox?
