"Forget about this site" removes Lockwise login entries

In the event that the passwords information is lost, you should record all information in a separate text file somewhere else on your hard drive, or written down. You can easily copy and paste if you need to do so. If you are concerned about someone else looking at that file, you can compress it using a password. Firefox 80+ has a logins-backup.json file in the profile folder that can be used in case of issues with logins.json or to undo an accidental delete/update of a password. You can check if you can find this logins-backup.json file in the profile folder or in a backup and whether it has the lost logins. Note that if you use the Primary Password, you can prevent losing logins to make sure that you aren't logged on by canceling a PP prompt. Firefox will then prompt for the PP when you use "Forget About This Site" and only remove the logins if you provide the PP (so cancel this prompt). ----- You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
