opened the pop up password recovery window and it said not responding and when started responding all my passwords from the laptop and desktop were gone
I opened the options>>security>>saved passwords pop up and clicked on show passwords and it said *not responding* for a bit and when it started responding my 100+ passwords and user names were all gone and the window was totally clear....any idea how to recover all those passwords?
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:17.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0
Did you try to close and restart Firefox or reboot the computer?
Yes I did...many times..I also went ahead and updated the Flash but no luck... One thing is that the firefox passwords on my other computer have disappeared as well so I can't even sync this one to get the passwords back. Any other ideas!??
Did you mean Windows password recovery? I think you need to recover lost password here: http://www.recoverlostpassword.com
Nop...no windows password...I meant the passwords saved by Firefox have disappeared from my both computers...the laptop and the desktop....... even if I can recover my laptops I will be fine(sync)..... Any way to recover those??
You need a backup copy or previous versions of the key3.db and signons.sqlite files to restore the passwords stored via the Password Manager.
Ok I got those links...what now?? I found the profile as well.....is there an easy way to recover passwords or?? just for your info...there was no previous versions and I have been usinmg firefox forever...........
