The original built in password manager that Firefox had has changed again. It originally changed late last year. Then i returned to the previous password manager by following instructions in this link:

However this solution no longer works. How can i get back to the previous password manager, when it was displayed in a row of columns headed 'Site' 'Username' 'Password' 'Last Changed.' Now once again it is just one long column.

I look forward to hearing from you.

  • Open the Firefox web browser.
  • Load about:support.
  • Click on the "open folder" link near the top of the page that opens; this opens the profile folder.
  • Close Firefox.
  • Check if you see a file called logins. json. ...
  • If you do, rename the file to logins. json to fix it.
  • Start Firefox.

Thank you!


Thank-you for the instructions.

However i cannot find "open folder." See attached.

I look forward to hearing from you.



The previous answer doesn't make sense. I wouldn't follow it at all, it you don't want to lose your passwords.
