About the Firefox Lockwise
Hello, I am one of many as it seems that have issues with restoring old passwords after the change. I just noticed that I needed to find one password, and the problem with the standard suggested solutions aleways require you to change
signon.management.overrideURI = <blank>
problem is, wiht me that entry doesnt even exist, and whatever I did on my one pc just screwed up the entire firefox, all logins gone. I dont want to ahve the same to happen on my laptop, and since googleseraching this forum didnt help me at all, I decided to ask myself (picture in attachment)
thanks in advance! Nyro

The only thing you need to do to restore old passwords is to place a backup copy of logins.json and key4.db in the current profile folder with Firefox closed. The signon.management.overrideURI pref you mentioned was for selecting the new or legacy Password Manager in older releases that still had support for that old Password Manager. Current releases only have Lockwise (about:logins), but still use the same matching logins.json and key4.db files.
well my issue is, i have no clue where the old files are. i dont have a backup folder on my desktop as described in other instances, it has to be somewhere in the cookies since the autologin still works, unless i missunderstand something.
but already thanks for the fast first answer :)
Autologin works via cookies and works as long as you have such a special cookie and has nothing to do with login data stored in the Password Manager.
Are you using Sync to sync logins since you mention a laptop ?
If this laptop is a desktop device meaning that you can access the profile folder and has all your logins then you can transfer logins.json and key4.db from the profile folder on that device to your other computer via a removable USB device. Make sure to disconnect all devices from Sync.
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.
- Help -> Troubleshooting Information -> Profile Folder/Directory:
Windows: Open Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder
Never used sync on any devices with firefox. the app data folder only contains one profile. my problem is that I need to see the password, because resetting will be a pain the the a**. (if i misswrote my problem i kinda jus wanna read out my password, and on my attempt on my pc i deleted everything on firefox, i dont want it to happen my laptop since its the last place where its stored)
thanks for your time kind sir :)
You can add a new password to Lockwise (about:logins), so you can do that if you still can see this username and password in Lockwise on the laptop.
If you can't see the password on the laptop then you would need older versions of logins.json and key4.db that still has this login.
You can look at a utility to browse System Restore points.
shadow explorer is empty. imma give up on this one, i really liked firefox, but if they do bullshit like this, im out.
thanks for your time sir, but for me its time to download chrome
