Where are my passwords stored on the hard drive in Firefox 16?

I recently upgraded to Windows 8 and went from Windows 7, and I just forgot to backup (yeah, I know, it's stupid) my profile with the passwords. The windows.old folder is there, with my old profile and all, but I can't seem to find the passwords. In every article I have read about this it says the same "find the key3.db and signons.sqlite in the profile folder". But there is NONE in my Firefox profile folder. To see if it had just disappeard from my windows.old folder, I installed Firefox 16 and saved a password. But it's the same there, the files does not exist, at all.

Does it work differently in Firefox 16? Or is Windows 8 just pure evil?

Those are the correct files key3.db and signons.sqlite

As you are unable to find similar files in the current installation you may be looking in the wrong location or not displaying hidden files.

You could have a custom installation but the profile is usually (in Windows 7) here:

hello Nirvasher, it sounds like you may be looking at a wrong folder - this shouldn't have changed with firefox 16. the following article explains how to get into the profile folder: Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data
