I accidentally deleted all my saved passwords in Firefox while intending to delete only one password.

I have Firefox version 52, with Windows XP. All of the solutions I have found online so far only apply to later versions of Windows (7 and beyond). I understand that my logins.json file is the one which needs to be restored to its earlier condition, but I cannot find any way to do this in Windows XP.

Immediate help requested. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hard drive crashed due to multiple power outages & a brownout, and just had a new one (solid state) installed.

They got Firefox installed, and my bookmarks in place (it appears), but none of my saved passwords are there.

They did a copy of all my old hard drive's data to the new drive (and a backup on a small solid state drive), but I haven't been able to find a way to get Firefox to locate & use them. It is saving new ones I create, but the old ones (probably a hundred or more) aren't there.

I'm not very computer savvy, so if anyone has a simple, step-by-step method of doing this, I'd REALLY appreciate it!

I'm on Win10 (upgraded from Win7 Home Premium a couple of months ago), and the latest version of Firefox.

I have dozens and dozens of passwords being managed/stored/saved through Firefox. They have been deleted multiple times now and I'm getting fed up. It seems like it might be happening after a Firefox update. Why is this happening? Why has this not been an issue for years and now it's monthly? I'm extremely close to quitting using Firefox completely if it's not fixed. This is ridiculous

I set up a Linux OS on my computer and wanted to export all my login data from Firefox Quantum in Windows to it. I tried looking everywhere for what to do, but can't find anything. I've tried syncing my Firefox account, copying then pasting everything from my Firefox profile in Windows into the Firefox profile in Linux, however it only imported my bookmarks and none of my login information. Is there a way that I am missing or may have overlooked that will allow me to export all the login information so I don't have to reconfigure everything?

I have all passwords and log in info saved to firefox so it wil auto fill in usernames and passwords.

PROBLEM: On several sites ,even though it has all the info saved,and shows it in "saved logins",it refuses to enter anything in the username space making it immpossible to log into sites without doing it manually. Once I enter the username it fills in the passwords but this is just not acceptable and makes the browser useless to me as it makes everything a huge hasle just to log into a site.

Is there anyway to fix this besides going back to chrome???

Under privacy and security - forms and passwords - I have checked "Ask to save logins and passwords" - Many times - when visiting a new site - the dropdown that asks if I want to save - does not appear - and/or - the login is there - but the password is not saved. "Password Editor" in add-ons is not compatible with my version of Firefox - Without going crazy - there should be a way - under this setting - "privacy and security" - to Manually add a web-site with login/password. And if not - why not?

hello

since last week, my saved logins have disappared. I tried with a win10 system recovery (there were 2 timestamps available): both didn't work, linked to a problem with Firefox profile (but error message doesn't show up fully so hard to see what is wrong).

Via shadowexplorer, I was able to export the following files from previous system recovery backups: key3.db key4.db & logins.json .

If I copy these to a new (or existing profile), the logins.json file is renamed to logins.json.corrupt

I have seen that there was a similar problem with AVG-users, but I run Comodo internet security premium...

Any clues how to retrieve the logins??

thx in advance!

PROBLEM 1: I do not understand why after every few days all my sessions suddenly gets expired. My firefox is set to open all tabs where i left off and most of them had sessions. If it was one session that was expiring then i could have thought that it must be that website's issue but all sessions on open tabs expires at once.

PROBLEM 2:

In case there is a version upgrade or a browser crash ... all save passwords are gone. I cant get them back even with account sync.

-- I have never seen any "old firefox" name folder on desktop ever in my entire life. -- I am not using any extension. -- I am using default theme.

These 2 issues have been irritating me for years now I am really really pissed off .. whats the use of even saving the passwords when one has to lose them one day suddenly.

I used to be able to save my security questions in the password manager. There was an add on that let you add extra entries, but it no longer works with the new fireforx.

I wanted to make a suggestion to the firefox programmers to let us add whatever entries we want to the manager so we can save our security questions. Or make the manager ask us to save when we type in security questions.

Hi. I have a some problem with my Firefox (60.0.1 x64, ubuntu 18.04). Firefox asks me to save my login and password when I do login to site, but when I want to visit this site later, Firefox don't input my saved login and password. I tried to restart it to safe mode and all works correctly: saved login/pass put into input fields fine. After this, I disabled all of most my used extensions, but saved logins and passwords aren't used in input fields all the same. All works correctly in safe mode only. How can I fix it?

Greetings,

I've tried all avenues that normally resolves the issue of unsaved passwords, including cleaning out caches, running in safe mode etc. In fact, I tried two different MacOSX machines, one running running 10.13.8, the other 10.14.1. Nothing works, Firefox does not offer to save credentials. I thought there might be some new HTML trick to disable login saving I'm not aware of but Safari had no problem saving the password. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Started happening today (7/22/2015)--after re-opening Firefox this afternoon, I could not log in to Yahoo, G-mail, and some other password-protected accounts. Fortunately, I could access those accounts in Chrome. I do not have browsers save passwords. I always type them in manually. How can I access these accounts in Chrome and not Firefox? Javascript or what? The whole Flash issue is also annoying. I'm using other browsers more and more. Please fix, or I'll forget using Firefox entirely.

I've gotten some of it back but my saved passwords won't transfer. I copy the files from the old folder into my directory but it doesn't show up in browser, nor do any of the passwords autocomplete.
