Do you have another profile? Look inside. Unless you can find a backup . . . . .


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.

You can look at this utility to browse System Restore points to see if you can locate copies of logins.json and key4.db in the hidden 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.
