Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; '''Old Firefox?''' Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-run-firefox-when-profile-missing-inaccessible

In the event that the passwords information is lost, you should record all information in a separate text file somewhere else on your hard drive, or written down. You can easily copy and paste if you need to do so. If you are concerned about someone else looking at that file, you can compress it using a password.

When you reset the password for Sync all the data saved in Sync is cleared. Sorry, but that was fatal mistake.

A different password won't decrypt any previously Synced data - the password was / is used to create the algorithm by which your data is encrypted.

A misuse of the Sync service if you don't have another device connected to the Sync / Firefox Account.

Hi guppy1, given this information:

You could copy a pair of files from another computer to your currently live profile on this computer. Those files are:

  • logins.json
  • key.db4 key4.db sorry for the typo!

Please review these articles for more information, and also, please make sure to Exit fully out of Firefox before replacing any of its settings files.


One other note: some types of Windows Refresh/Reset will create a folder named

C:\Windows.old

Do you have that folder? I don't know whether that was available on Windows 7 or only later versions of Windows.
