After desktop crash, ALL passwords lost

Posted

I had a desktop freeze and afterwards, ALL my saved passwords are lost AGAIN. This is the second time I am experiencing this disaster. How can I prevent this from happening.. What do I do to recover my logins? Here is what I have on disk:

[turgut@tklaptop a5637r1i.default]$ ls -lt key* -rwxrwxr-x 1 turgut turgut 294912 Dec 12 07:40 key4.db -rw------- 1 turgut turgut 294912 Jul 26 03:22 key4.db.was -rw------- 1 turgut turgut 16384 Mar 16 2018 key3.db

[turgut@tklaptop a5637r1i.default]$ ls -l logins* -rw------- 1 turgut turgut 0 Aug 16 15:07 logins.json-1.corrupt -rw------- 1 turgut turgut 0 Jan 22 10:04 logins.json-2.corrupt -rw------- 1 turgut turgut 1723 Jul 31 11:21 logins.json.isempty -rw------- 1 turgut turgut 0 Aug 16 15:10 logins.json.corrupt

PS: Some of these files are from my previous crash and loss of passwords..

This is Firefox 64.0.2 , gnome, fedora linux 29.

What's your computer system and Firefox version?

Is it the computer that crashed, or the browser?


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.

Ae you thinking the computer crashed because of Firefox? Is the computer working if you don't use Firefox?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?
