My computer crashed last week and I restored everything from the old hard drive to a new hard drive without any issues so far. Well when I went to restore the passwords file it will not let me. I dragged with firefox closed the key3.db and the logins.json over to my new hard drive and replaced the existing files. When I opened firefox it was just blank. I did have a master password set up on my old browser, which im assuming is causing this not to work? I know most of my passwords, but there were some on there that I really need restored and would like to fix this issue.

Do you also have a possible signons.sqlite file from that other computer that you could try?

Do you see in the Password Manager that a Master Password is used?

You can force Firefox to reimport the passwords from the signons.sqlite file (you need the matching key3.db file).

  • reset the signon.importedFromSqlite pref on the about:config page to the default value via the right-click context menu
  • delete the logins.json file in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed

When you restart Firefox then you should have the signon.importedFromSqlite pref with the value set to true and you should have the passwords imported in the Password Manager unless there may have been errors.
