When firefox asked if I wanted to update to the newest version, I answered NO! I had already discovered on my other computer that if I allowed the update, I would lose my ability to restore the previous session, so I wanted to save the tabs so I could reload them. I also lost all of the saved passwords on my other computer and didn't want the same thing to happen on my work computer. But despite answering NO. Firefox updated anyway, and I have lost days of work. How do I get it back? Jack

Yesterday I've used 'LastPass' add-on with no problem. I can't say for sure that yesterday the icon was present in navigation toolbar (as I usually open the site login page and use auto fill user name option from login forms), but I'm sure that the add-on work just fine, there was the '*' displayed in the right side of each login field and password was correctly filled in. Now the 'LastPass' add-on is not displayed in extension list in my Firefox browser and if I search for 'LastPass' the option to install it is offered.

Can you please tell me how can I check how the 'LastPass' add-on was removed and is this a kind of trojan or virus problem before I reinstall the add-on.

Thanks for your support.

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.

I am running firefox 47.0.1 and every time I reboot all my saved logins and passwords disappear. When I check saved logins, there is nothing there. I can reenter and they stay until I log off or reboot. Running Windows 7 64 bit OS, but this behavior just started. Was there something in the latest firefox update responsible for this behavior?
