I moved the login.json file to try export login details but now I cannot find the saved details anymore.

So when trying to clean out my mum's old computer (This one) I accidentally moved the logins.json file (the encrypted login file) and now I am not able to access the login details anymore despite putting the file back into the correct location. There are many important passwords and login details that I need to access so I would really appreciate it if you could help me. Thank you.

I also have the login file available and I know that it is the correct one, but I am not able to import it back in or view the file through a word document or notebook file as the login details are encrypted.

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

When you moved, and then returned the logins.json file the computer changed the file data. As I understand it, both files must have the same date.

So I downloaded Passwordfox and it ran but it displays each website that has saved login details however it isn't displaying the usernames and passwords but instead it is only showing the Username and Password Fields and the strength levels.
