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

Accessed my email and other accounts up till 5 o'clock pm. Passwords for amazon, estores, and everything gone. Tried to retrieve email pwords. My two emails were each others' backup. So, that failed. My new cell phone number of 3 months (that I entered for yahoo security) was not recognized. I needed to provide missing digits of an old cell number that I disregarded one year ago. I did try to revert to an earlier system restore point. That did nothing. I will gladly pay for help. Abby

A message showed up when I opened FireFox saying "your Mozzila is running slooow refresh your Mozzilla today. So I did the refresh. I now have lost bookmarks and settings. Also the sync I did with the program weeks ago no longer works AND WORST OF ALL You Added Add-Ons I DIDN'T Need or Want without even asking. So Now I have to spend a bunch of time getting it set up the way I liked It. Or maybe Not. Is definitely time to find a new BROWSER!

My places.sqlite file has places.sqlite.corrupt just under it in my second profile's folder. I tried renaming the corrupt file as just places.sqlite (calling the first places.sqlite something else) and restarting as suggested but the history still won't show up, and when I check the folder, places.sqlite is once again places.sqlite.corrupt (with a places.sqlite file just above it.)

Is there a way to somehow get Quantum to read my old history?

You guys had a big update, all that fast new performance. My master password (MP) was missing after installing the update.

So I ran that way for a few days, but didn't want my password to be unprotected. So I put in a new MP, but it's apparently corrupted. I can't login to see my stored passwords. The MP challenge popup comes up over and over. Woe is me.

Guess I'll go to Brave unless you have a fix. If I have to lose all my saved password by resetting my MP, there's no reason to continue using Firefox.

This morning I created some new bookmarks, then quit Firefox. No apparent problems during that session or when quitting. But when relaunching, the new bookmarks are gone and all my history is gone. There is a places.sqlite.corrupt file in the profile folder, which I deleted. All seems to be working fine but I can't restore the lost history. Suggestions?

Hi! My account - elzas07@ya.ru I have many years of syncing bookmarks, settings and passwords, but 2 months ago, when I installed a new version of Firefox on Windows Pro 10, I can't do that. The instructions on your website do not help me. I go to my account in the browser, sync, but the bookmarks are empty!!!! I want my passwords, bookmarks and settings! Bad browser!

How do I open these files to check them ? Tried Firefox in Safe Mode, still no logins. Help would be appreciated, thank you
