I have salvaged the key3.db, key4.db, logins.json and signons.sqlite from my old firefox profile. My understanding is that the password information is stored in these files. Can I recover my old login info using these 4 files only?

I already tried dropping them into the new profile and PasswordFox without success,

logins.json and key3.db [v58+]key4.db : These are the password files.

signons.sqlite is an old file no longer used.

Look at the file date of the logins.json file. Now check the dates of the key3.db and key4.db files. Are one of them the same date?

If so, Copy those two files to the current profile and see if they work.

No the files have time stamps about a day apart. Also dropping them in the profile folder was the first ting I tried and it didn't work.
