Hello.

I freshly installed Windows and therefore Firefox, I backed up my Profile folder before doing so and I moved my logins.json and key4.db files to the new Profile of the fresh installatio. But my passwords don't show up in Firefox Saved Passwords, the files aren't corrupted as I can see my data when opening the logins file on Firefox, but the passwords are all encrypted. I have given up hope that firefox will recognize the passwords (I have created new profiles and moved the json and db file there multiple times, refreshed the browser, installed and older version, none of them seem to work for me). Is there any way to decrypt my passwords outside of Firefox? Or is there a fix to this problem that I am not aware of? I have searched the forums for hours, and people who decrypt the files outside of firefox seem to do it in ways that I am not capable of doing so (coding ,etc)

Would really appreciate any help as this is driving me crazy.

Are you sure you have a matching logins.json and key4.db? Were you previously using the Primary Password?

You can temporarily set signon.debug = true on the about:config page and check the Browser Console for login related messages.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. If you get the warning page, you can click the "Accept the Risk and Continue" button.
