This week my Firefox browser was updated. Afterward, the "old Firefox files" folder appeared on desktop (Mac book Air 2017) I did a quick search to find out if I needed that folder and found it could be deleted. MANY times over the years I have deleted that folder after an update with never an issue, so I deleted it! Later when I got on my computer, I found all my logins were gone! And there appears to be a new login manager called "Lockwise." After doing a lot of searching on how to get back those logins it appears I needed the Old Files folder because it contained a file of those logins. WHY didn't they migrate automatically to the new Firefox?? I've NEVER had this happen previously. I DO have Firefox on my iPhone 12 Pro Max and all those logins are there, but I see no way to get them from the phone to the Mac book. I can only "sync" on each end which is doing nothing. So now when I go to a regularly visited site, I type in my username and password and the little box pops up as usual, asking me if I want to save it. I click to save it but when I go back to that site next time, it's not saved. When I go into my Firefox account and click on logins, it says I have none saved! And it gives me an option to begin typing in logins there manually. So I type in that log in and save it. I go back to that website and it is NOT saved! Not only have I lost all my logins, but I cannot even begin to repopulate them again. This HORRIBLE new "Lockwise" has ruined my Firefox experience on my Mac book! What can be done at this point, to fix this issue? P.S. it also tells me to log into Lockwise?? It shows I am logged in at the upper right corner.
