Lost firefox password. Can i import everything to safari on my mac and then import it back into firefox after resetting my password?

Размещено

I lost my password for Firefox somehow.

I have my secondary email set up. I have account recovery not enabled I have two step authentication not enabled

I do not have a saved password in either Firefox itself or on iClouds keychain that works.

I understand that if I were to reset my password, I would lose everything.

On my desktop, I have 289 saved passwords On my iPhone I probably have that many or more unsynced passwords.

I have 10 years worth of bookmarks and history as well. I don’t really care about the history, but the bookmarks are important.

If there is no way to recover my password for Firefox, can I use Apple's Safari browser to export my usernames/passwords and bookmarks on my desktop and import them back in after I reset my password (which will reset my firefox account) ?

Also, if I do this, how will it affect my iPhone Firefox? Its not currently logged into firefox due to the password issue. Thanks!

To clarify, if you reset your Firefox Account password you shouldn't lose any data that's already on your computer. It just means that any data stored on Firefox Sync will be erased.

Essentially that means that if you have the data already on your computer you should be fine, but if you only have the data on Firefox Sync (which is not the purpose of Firefox Sync) you can't pull that data off of Firefox Sync.

You should be fine to reset your password. When you log into Firefox Sync again, the existing data that you have on your computer already should be automatically transferred back into Firefox Sync.

If you are concerned about losing data, you can always make a back up of your Firefox profile before changing your Firefox Sync data to ensure that you have a spare copy of it on your computer.

Hope this helps.
