Problem at exporting passwords

I never had a firefox account till now. So, I had to reset the pc where i had all my logins. I once had to export my passwords (exporting key4 and logins.json files) and it worked, so i didn't think to much about it. So i reset the pc without cheking if the passwords actually worked (yuh, my bad). The problem is that apparently mozilla doesn't recognize the files, or something, cause when i open "Logins and passwords" it's empty. I don't know what to do, please help me.

Do you see encrypted login data in logins.json if you open the file in a Firefox tab?

Did you place the logins.json and key4.db files in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed?

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.

How did you backup the password files (two files)? What kind of reset did you do to the computer?

Look in the C:\ folder. Do you see something like Old Windows?
