I jumped at the chance to install Firefox 64 bit at the end of December after using 32 bit version for a number of years. Only now I've realised my passwords and logins are all missing. I've looked at the restore profile suggestions but it seems like 64bit has by default overwritten the 32bit profile, including the passwords, unless it's gone to another place that I cannot locate? Any suggestions for a win10 user to retrieve my lost password?

Thank you

This started happening after I had a web browser hijacker that hijacked Windows Edge. My software company did a remote session and fixed that. But, if using Firefox, at every single site I go to, even yahoo email, it keeps asking me if I want to update my logon information. I have never seen it do that before, it is like it wants me to do that so it can see my new password????? I have no reason to update my logon info, and would do that myself as I feel necessary. I completely removed Firefox, went to Mozilla main site, and downloaded and installed the latest version of Firefox, and it is still asking everywhere I go. Do I have another bug in my system that is only affecting Firefox? Edge runs fine now, as does IE but I never use IE anymore. Please help. Robert

Updated to the most recent version of firefox (running 49.0.1) after i got a notification saying there was a new version available. Today i went to a website that i had my password saved for, but it wasn't showing up when i tried to log in. Went to my saved passwords and all of my old logins + passwords are gone, only have what i've saved since the update . I went through a few of the 'lost saved password' questions and have tried to restore previous versions of logins.json (i also noticed a corrupt logins.json file in my profile), I also tried to make a new profile and copy over logins, i booted in safe mode etc but nothing is working. Is there anything I can do to get my passwords back?!

I have an extension which communicates with a native application in windows. Extension(password manager) which takes username and password and sends it to native application to store it in the database. While sending credentials from extension to native application, i want to encrypt them. For chrome extension, NACL (native client) is being used to encrypt and decrypt the credentials before sending to native application.

I can implement encryption in javascript, but it can be hacked easily since secret key will be visible in browser, but if i use native code apis for encryption, then keys are not open in javascript.

Please let me know some way to embed native code( like Google NACL) in my extension javascript code.
