Please turn off your Caps Lock. In text talk, this is shouting.

Type about:profiles<enter> in the address bar. How many profiles are listed? How many should be there?


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.

If you use the Time Machine or other backup then try to restore file(s) from this backup.
