Hi, i have a problem. My gmail account passwords are gone I've checked in Tools > Options > Security: Passwords: "Saved Passwords" > "Show Passwords" but there is nothing. Neither to the "account.google" nor "google.com". I have always had the pre-filled username/passwords fields for years. Only the gmail password are missing. Someone can help me, please?

Hello FF team.

starting with FF update 56 to 57 and so on I got this strange problem: it looks like my key4.db file gets corrupted and FF become almost useless after I access my saved passwords and then exit the browser. If I delete the key4.db file (I still have the key3.db and logins.json files in profile folder) everything works fine. The key4.db file is generated, my passwords are there and I can use them till next browser exit/restart. Here are the symptoms:

- upon start the browser directly asks for master password (normally I'm asked for the master password only when I really need it) - no browsing history is shown in the address bar - enter key and 'Go to...' button do not work at all (I can only open a site if it is bookmarked) - when I go to browser's options there is nothing under 'Search' section - in other words the content cannot be loaded or displayed - when I open 'Saved Logins' dialog there is nothing - there are no *corrupt files in my profile directory

So when this happens I have to exit the browser and delete the key4.db file. However if I don't access my saved logins during the session at all, there is no such problem. I can start/use/exit the browser as many times as I want and it works fine. So it looks like the access to the saved logins breaks something.

Windows 7, 64-bit. Firefox 62.0.3 (64-bit) Noticed today that my bookmarks are gone. Went through many support pages trying to get them back. The bookmarks restore dialog shows I have a variety of backups, each claimed to be containing ~4500 bookmarks, which sounds about right. Restoring one of them produces no errors, but nothing seems to happen -- my bookmarks are still all gone. Did the "verify" on the Troubleshooting page, didn't see any complaints. Did a backup to a .json file and, wow, that's impressive -- never seen Gnu Emacs lock up trying to load a file before; did they really elect to put no newlines in there?

Finally, I am desperate enough to post for help. :-)

Firefox did an auto update last week and since that time I have not been able to restore any of my prior bookmarks. Tried all the methods suggested and nothing provides the correct methodology for not only restoring but even finding them. There has to be a simple solution for this unwanted change.

When using the "Restore Previous session" Firefox keeps refusing to load one of the tabs I had open last at random. Then when I copy the internet address and close the tab then use the Paste and go in my address bar, it promptly crashes that tab as well. As you can understand this is extremely annoying, so what's going on here?

I need all my stuff for my work and I have no idea what I had and its all gone...Likely 200 bookmarks for one thing and about 20 tabs

WTF! I need some help here to restore EVERYTHING I had. It was bad enough with this other add on nonsense and now this?

In researching this issue from other users, I saw where you may be able to restore my bookmarks and history but you have to ask me some questions first. Please help me and ask me any questions. I am going to be very upset if all I did was refresh and I lost everything. I checked before I did it and everything was set to sync. Problem is that it's telling me that my password is incorrect but I know that it's correct. Just checked it earlier today.

Suddenly today when I opened Firefox, the Top Sites section on my new tab page had only blank icons. I previously had several pinned sites. I'm also unable to manually add any top sites. If I try to add a new top site, and enter a name and URL, when I click the "Add" button, nothing happens. No new site is added. I have uninstalled, rebooted, and reinstalled Firefox several times with no success. I also went into about:Config and saw that for the item browser.newtabpage.pinned, the value contains all the URLs for my pinned sites. They're just not appearing on my new tab page and I'm no longer able to manually add any top sites. Also, none of the sites I visit now show up, they're all just blank icons. I'm using Firefox version 62.0.

Hello! I've got a problem since a week in Firefox, all my sessions and settings on websites are not saved.

For exemple, when I want to use YouTube, I first get connected, then I turn on the dark mode. Until I close Firefox, it will save those settings, even in new tabs. But if I close and reopen Firefox, those settings are gone. I need to connect again on Youtube, and dark mode is no more activated.

Same issue on all websites except for those which were saved before the first time I saw the problem. But if I close my sessions on them, then it will be the same.

I tried to completely remove (program and userdata) Firefox and install it again, still the same. I tried to clear the cache, still the same. And I tried to reinitialize Firefox with its own function, still the same.

So I'm wondering if someone would help, because Firefox is my favorite browser and I can't get used to another.

Thanks, Tun.

PS : My english may be weird, I'm sorry for that.

Hello. I had naively let my computer do an upgrade of Mozilla. Guess what. All data gone. History, bookmarks, add-ons. I didn't have a back-up of bookmarks, well, at least not recent.

How can I get them back? I've spent a lot of time with setting up Firefox so it would be comfortable to me, I've spent my time in it, and now it's all gone and I don't even remember the name of some add-ons I used to use.

I had a system crash, probably with Firefox opened.

After restarting PC and starting Firefox, most of the addons I have had lost all of their settings and were reset to default - Tampermonkey lost all the scripts I had installed, uBlock lost all settings and rules, etc. Weirdly some extensions kept portions of their settings, like TreeTabs saved tree structure despite also getting reset to default.

Additionally Firefox also got its own settings reset to default, while the tabs from my session and bookmarks were saved.

Is there any way to recover addon and Firefox settings, is there any backup of them?

I checked the only other response that I see (about:preferences#security), which I cannot enter as a URL.

I lost all of my logins/passwords tonight, after reinstalling v 66.0.2. I created a couple of passwords, including here. They are NOT in my saved logins. That has never happened before.

I always save logins. And I always update my logins when I change them.

This is becoming tedious.

hello

since last week, my saved logins have disappared. I tried with a win10 system recovery (there were 2 timestamps available): both didn't work, linked to a problem with Firefox profile (but error message doesn't show up fully so hard to see what is wrong).

Via shadowexplorer, I was able to export the following files from previous system recovery backups: key3.db key4.db & logins.json .

If I copy these to a new (or existing profile), the logins.json file is renamed to logins.json.corrupt

I have seen that there was a similar problem with AVG-users, but I run Comodo internet security premium...

Any clues how to retrieve the logins??

thx in advance!

I randomly lose bookmarks. I save them to a subfolder and check that they are in fact there. a few days later, gone. Yes, I tried restoring and checked history.

The backup is a week old. The history is incomplete. BUT it was there yesterday. It's happened before, and doesn't seem related to updates. Any thoughts?
