Hello In mozilla firefox, i disabled "ask to save passwords, autofill forms" and i turned on "never save history, delete cookies after exiting browser" functions. I entered my passwords for one website using this browser. And I deleted cookies and history one more time to make sure so that no one can access my login and password. But in one article i read that firefox keeps files called logins.json and key4.db which stores login&passwords. My question is - Are my logins and passwords saved even though I disabled&enabled that functions i mentioned before?

If you selected to not save your passwords, those files should be empty. Note: The form filler built into Firefox might also save some data.

Thank you for your answer. I have some questions again, pls help me. Do you mean email adress & phone number by "some data" or do you mean passwords? in addition i turned on 2FA for all my logins. Do you think is it possible to access my accounts or logins via logins.json and key4.db if these files were keeping my passwords. Does Firefox keep any information in these files related to 2fa ? Thank you one more time.
