Password manager is not auto-filling. The Avast Passwords icon is orange and not locked but when I click on it it says it is not enabled. If I then go to add-ons the only option is to disable it. Doing this and then re-enabling does not help, nor does re-booting. I have had password manager for quite a while and this is the first time I have seen this. I am not aware of any recent updates and I have not changed any settings. oowever, my wife was last to use this computer so who knows...

Firefox won't read my password file

I don't know why - possibly after a firefox update to 49.0.2? But Firefox on Windows 10 is no longer saving or using my saved passwords. When I try to display saved logins, there are none showing. However, I do have intact key3.db and logins.json files, and I can see in logins.json that there are lots of logins stored in there. So I'm sure the data are there, but just not being read.

Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't help. Refresh didn't help. Synch seems to connect, but doesn't help. Isn't there some command to force the browser to read the saved logins file?

I accidentally saved password for a site in firefox. Now i need the previous password.

To change to new password, you require old password. I punched the old password that i had saved in my diary and put the new ones. The system asked to saved the new one. So, i clicked it. But unfortunately the old password was not correct and so the new password was not registered.

Now, the need the just previous password?????

Firefox Sync is missing saved logins (fetch data correctly but don't use it)

Hi,

I installed Firefox Nightly (56.0a1 (2017-07-22) (64-bit)) and enabled sync for bookmarks and passwords. Bookmarks were synced correctly, but not the passwords.

I can see a the file logins.json in my profile folder, with the logins content. But if I go to Preferences->Security->Saved Logins the list is empty. Also, logins form field are not auto filled.

None content was imported manually. Nightly somehow synced and downloaded the logins.json, but apparently it's not using it.

I already did this exact same process (reinstall in new machine + sync) without any problem, except for this time/version. May it be a bug?

I already tried some forum solutions: connect/reconnect account; delete signedInUser.json; restarting; etc. Everytime the logins.json is correctly fetched from the web with the content, or the bookmarks are synced correctly, but Nightly apparently is not 'using' the contents of this file.

Thank you,

Mario

Firefox removed all my stored passwords, and this is going to be a huge problem for me.. They were all in Firefox password manager, or whatever its called, and i tried to lookup logins.json in %appdata%, but it only shows the last password in the list (i had only added a new one when i found out all old ones were gone-made an account at a new site before going through old ones).. The logins.json does not show a rollback history(previous versions)..

I think the fonts etc look different now than it did yesterday, so it could have been an update during the night? Either way, how can i restore it??
