Your browser left my computer, I had to re-download it ...you would not accept my password....had to change it. Now everything is gone. they say it was connected to the password you would not accept. it should be connected to me in a way I don't have to loose everything..... As smart as you guys are you should have a way for me to recover my old password.

Hi,

after I received the 'Firefox appears to be slow' message for a couple of times in a row I decided to use the 'clean install' option that it (the browser) offers. I was under the impression that you could choose what to clean and what to keep, but apparently I was wrong. I now have a clean install and all, but everything is reset - back to default.

I do have the old files on my desktop and tried to import them like mentioned here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1212433 But it didn't work at all. And to be honest ... I don't remember all of my passwords, which is what I truly need from my old files.

I exited Firefox and restarted my Windows 10 computer. Upon attempting to launch Firefox, I was presented with the profile manager. It did not list any profiles from which to choose. In Windows Explorer, I found that my profile did exist. And there is a profiles.json file in the Profiles folder, but it is empty. I attempted to copy my good profile data into a new profile folder (that I created using profile manager) but upon launching, everything was set to default.

So, to sum up, cannot seem to use my profile, but it does seem to exist.

No matter what I try based on internet searches, and on this forum, I can't get my browser to save any history. After I close the closer at end of day, it erases everything. I even created a new profile.... no good. Uninstalled and re-installed.... no good. Places integrity checker says the database is sane. I checked my system care software and disabled any privacy sweeps months ago. My older (a few years back) firefox used to save everything....

I turned my work laptop on this morning and when I opened Firefox it made me create a new profile. There was no other option in order to continue. Once I did all of my saved logins, passwords and bookmarks were gone. As this is a work laptop I just lost a ton of links to important sites I use on a daily basis. How can I revert and get those back and why were they deleted in the first place?

I no longer have any:

passwords addons bookmarks history previously opened tabs user configuration

Nothing. Everything was completely wiped out. And that's just what I know about. Who knows what else is gone.

Does anyone know how I can retrieve this lost information.

Thank you.

Hi guys. I was clearing out unused software for space and I uninstalled the wrong firefox (I had two installed). I was using a 3rd party program called IObit uninstaller. Usually I know backups appear if uninstalled through the directory but this isn't the case with the 3rd party programs.

So after freaking out a little I looked for recovery programs and found one by the same developer, IObit undelete. I managed to find some json. files with settings, logins and some bookmark files too. However, when I try to restore the bookmarks file through the remaining firefox I'm told it is unable to process the file?

Does anybody please have any ideas what I can do to fix this? I'm pretty bummed out by this, i'll happily send a bit of cash your way if this can be restored again

I changed the password for the firefox account because I installed a new windows, after which all login details and bookmarks disappeared. during the password change I was not informed that I would lose all data! I let you keep this information in the cloud in trust and you deleted it? Have you gone crazy!?!?!?!? I want to get back my data immediately! I see that a lot of people have a similar problem and you don't do anything about it? How can I trust you at all in this situation?
