Hello,

The latest and greatest FF update did not import my FF bookmarks and saved PW. I followed all instructions on FF troubleshooting and forums and nothing seems to restore my data. I have a old FF data, but it's stating nothing has been backed up since 2018, however I've used FF daily. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance!

It instructed me to reload firefox, or something to that effect. It told me I would NOT lose my bookmarks. It lied, I lost all my bookmarks!!!!

Now I am trying to recover them, but I am a 76 year old 'non geek' who has trouble understanding all this new tech language, and following this often confusing road map to correct these problems. Sometimes I as myself, 'why don't you guys leave well-enough alone' ?

Please help me get my computer operating correctly again so I can go back to my multiple forum activities,...and get my model railroad and sailboat design activities done

after the ubuntu 18.04.4 firefox update to 74.0 my passwords seams totally lost. No ask for my master password as I visited a login site. Going to menue passwords, I was asked for my master password, and after entering, my password storage was empty. After a very long time, it seamed as my passwords are back again, but they where not complete, only 271 where back. On an very old system, from which I had transferred the firefox profile to the system now in use, I had had 413 passwords and I had had to create a lot more since this clone. After update to 74.0.1 again, at first passwords where completely lost and now again, lots of them where missing. What was astonishing was, on the old system key4.db is 294912 Byte (and no logins.json), now key4.db is 720896 B (logins.json 141519 B) but for sure lacking lot of information!

Happened once a while back but happened again today. Firefox Sync asked me to reconnect, which I did. After that reconnection, and even if "password" is checked in the parameters, all my passwords have disappeared. I do also have Firefox on my phone, which have all my passwords from before the first instance it occured, but it never synchronized to Firefox on my computer. No error messages appears when synchronizing, and everything seems to be normal. Any way to correct the non-synchronization of passwords ? Is there something I'm doing wrong ? Thanks.

opened firefox this morning on my pc to watch youtube while getting ready. It was 5:30 am so Iwasn't quite awake and I don't really remember what happened. I think I opened firefox and went to youtube, I was asked to sign in to see my subscriptions on youtube. I singed in. I keep my zoom at 160% big monitor, it was back at normal 100%. My bookmarks, cookies, addons and passwords are gone. I tried to restore to a previous version, but there isn't one. The newest save in my old firefox folder is from 2017. What happened?

I try to get my passwords to fit into a cryptic system. Silly me. Firefox updated itself today and wanted me to enter my google password before doing anything. Since my Google password is a cookie, and Firefox is yet another cookie it became a labyrinthine task. Sorry!. Beyond that, Firefox would not accept a security question (the answer to which is precyberhistoristorical). That is my history, which is not much documented. I wish that we didn't need to lose everything as we go about the task of changing passwords all the time. I am about to turn 60, and I love firefox!
