After my Browser automatically updated to 88.0.1 (i unfortunately ignored the popup to update Firefox for a while) i started it and my Login data was gone. Extensions, Bookmarks, anything other than Lockwise Data was still there.
I made an account (this one) as i previously did not have one in hopes of somehow fixing that; then after searching for solutions i checked for an "old data" file (does not exist) and checked about:profiles (i have a second profile named "default" that has absolutely zero saved data on anything, i dont know where it came from or wheter it was ever used). The profile that i use ("default-release") was active and that was that.
Then i checked Appdata/Roaming/.../theprofile (from the profile page) and was relieved to find that both "logins.jason" and "logins-backup.json" contained my Login data: The Username and Password (encrypted), formSubmitURL, giud, enctype, etc. I made a completly seperate backup in case something i do ends up deleting those. Since the passwords are encrypted i cannot add them one by one to Lockwise.
I dont know why they dont appear when i check my Login data or try to use the data on any Website. Can i manually "import" the file into Firefox so that it automatically decyrpts the passwords?
