Hello,

The latest and greatest FF update did not import my FF bookmarks and saved PW. I followed all instructions on FF troubleshooting and forums and nothing seems to restore my data. I have a old FF data, but it's stating nothing has been backed up since 2018, however I've used FF daily. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance!

If I don't want the same Firefox bookmarks on every device, do I need to create different accounts for each device using Firefox?

I avoided creating an account because I didn't want one pc to override others. Now suddenly my office pc has had the bookmarks taken for ransom because I did not want what they were offering of syncing all my devices.

Will my bookmarks reappear if I create an account for that pc?

This is actually a second time that this happens.

It happened also the last time I upgraded FF (from official Ubuntu repo) but I somehow restored the "old" profile and logins got back.

But this time I only have one FF profile under ~/.mozilla/firefox. The one which doesn't have the logins.

Have anyone experienced the same thing? And why is this happening in the first place?

Lockwise is such an important piece of code that IMHO should not be subject to such a failures.

Any hints on this much appreciated.

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?

Happened once a while back but happened again today. Firefox Sync asked me to reconnect, which I did. After that reconnection, and even if "password" is checked in the parameters, all my passwords have disappeared. I do also have Firefox on my phone, which have all my passwords from before the first instance it occured, but it never synchronized to Firefox on my computer. No error messages appears when synchronizing, and everything seems to be normal. Any way to correct the non-synchronization of passwords ? Is there something I'm doing wrong ? Thanks.

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

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.

after the ubuntu 18.04.4 firefox update to 74.0 my passwords seams totally lost. No ask for my master password as I visited a login site. Going to menue passwords, I was asked for my master password, and after entering, my password storage was empty. After a very long time, it seamed as my passwords are back again, but they where not complete, only 271 where back. On an very old system, from which I had transferred the firefox profile to the system now in use, I had had 413 passwords and I had had to create a lot more since this clone. After update to 74.0.1 again, at first passwords where completely lost and now again, lots of them where missing. What was astonishing was, on the old system key4.db is 294912 Byte (and no logins.json), now key4.db is 720896 B (logins.json 141519 B) but for sure lacking lot of information!
