Firefox deleted all my passwords - synchronize doesn't get back them.
Hi, My lenovo x230 turned off yesterday without a reason and today I turned it on then went to Firefox (linux, installed from source in /opt/) and then I saw "restore session" button so I restored it because I'm a programmer and I have many cards opened and then I realized I don't have my passwords remembered in Firefox... so I went to Settings Privacy and then I saw it's not logged to my Sync Account, I logged and click Sync but still nothing.... no passwords... so I go to my Firefox on Android and what? There's all passwords... I tried to sync it between these 2 Firefoxes but it transfer to PC only that passwords I saved only on my Android... even if there are all my passwords on that Android device from PC too... :/ what should I do?? it's weird....
Ok i think I fixed this... there was doubled devices so I disconnected this new one (from today) and then it worked... I have my passwords again.Read this answer in context 0

That was very good work. Well done. Please flag your last post as Solved Problem so others will know.
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.
