Hi

I use Firefox account to save my id/passwords. I did a mistake by clicking on "delete all ids" (in french: "Supprimer tous les identifiants..." into credentials panel. Is there a copy or something to restore a previous version of all my IDs/password ?

Thx in advance Christopher.

Unless you have a copy of the data someplace . . . .


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.


Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles {web link} I use a Legacy add-on that makes backups of my user profile, Just In Case. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with the current Firefox.

Every now and then, open the profile folder and create a copy of the current profile as is to another location on your hard drive. This way you will have a backup.

If you do this each day, you will not lose much data. This should be done with Firefox Closed.

Note: In case you need to restore from these backups, you may need to overwrite old or corrupted files.

There is a logins-backup.json file. You could try copying it as logins.json (with Firefox closed).

Otherwise you need a backup copy of logins.json (and possibly key4.db).

If you use the Time Machine or other backup then try to restore file(s) from this backup.
