Hi, I was using Firefox for many years . Recently I noticed that all my passwords in Firefox were gone and it seems like my account was recreated but all the historical passwords were missing. I was under the impression that those passwords are backed-up somewhere and that I can retrieve them. Could you advise how to recover my logins I collected in Firefox over the years pls.?

Are you also missing other data such as bookmarks and add-ons? Did data disappear after updating Firefox? Profiles contain two files named respectively logins.json and logins-backup.json. It's possible that all you have to do is rename the former then copy the latter to logins.json.

It is possible that you have a new profile. You can recover data from the previous profile.
