Hi, as a user of Firefox from day1 I have hit my first problem so not bad going. Right, I have a win10 desktop(DT1) and 2 laptops (LP1 AND LP2). All win10 fully patched up &Firefox 84.02. This morning I noticed my network share from LP1 to DT1 wasnt working and found LP1 powered down. Powered it up & it looked to be completing a patch (KB4598242) so let it finish successfully and logged in. It wouldnt take the 2 master pw prompts although definitely typing them correctly. Poked around the forum that talks of key4.db, key3.db and logins.json. Only had key4db but had a loginsbackup.json. deleted logins.jason and renamed loginsbackup. reloaded. Same, so am stuck. Did notice as LP1 loaded after powering on that a Firefox update occurred. Could one have messed the other? Anyway these things seldom happen on their own so what went on yesterday. On LP2 I noticed that on each reboot I got 2 identical FFox windows. I tried refresh, uninstalling ffox & mainteneance service, same. So I searched for the word firefox and deleted everything I could find and reinstalled FFox. Same, so switched off & gave up. Perhaps I have sync between my devices, not sure. However I have never at any stage changed my master passwords which is the same on all 3 pc's. Any ideas? Shame to lose over 120 passwords if I have to somehow start over again by uninstalling FFox and reinstalling..that'll take ages. And of course the password prompt is coming up all the time whilst typing this. Help please

I can't remove my master password from my Firefox profile. The pop-up shows up asking for my password, but the remove button does nothing. I can't change my master password from it's current setting. A pop up comes up saying "Cannot change master password".

I've tried refreshing Firefox. I've tried copying login.json key4.db to a new profile. I've tried upgrading Firefox. I've tried both Nightly and regular release Firefox. I've read every article on the Mozilla support website based on a search for this problem.

Please help. How do I recover all my passwords to a fresh profile?

Hi,

I reset the master password for Firefox and I didn't process that all the saved passwords would erase (I was tired and did not fully read the warning before I pressed "ok"). Is there any way to go back to the list of the saved passwords (like "go back to a previously restored version")?

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Hi, I signed for a master password in Firefox. When the window appears to ask me to insert it, I do but it doesn't work. Then I try to reset it with this link: chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul into but it doesn't work either as nothing appears after hitting enter. I want to get rid of this annoying pop up window as I'm sure I'm entering the right password but it's always denied. Thank you very much!
