Recover Firefox password without losing bookmarks and saved logins

I've been using Firefox to store logins and passwords and manage bookmarks on one computer for 10 years+. I always just opened a browser, clicked "tools" then went to my saved passwords. Today I got a new computer and wanted to sync with my Firefox from the old computer. The old computer is asking for a Firefox password, which I don't have (I've tried everything I can think of but I set it 10 years ago). I searched for help online and tried setting a "Master Password." Now, despite entering the EXACT password I selected, it is saying it's wrong and I'm locked out of all of my saved logins on the original computer as well.

I have a secondary email but nothing seems to generate a recovery email (yes, I am stupid and didn't enable recovery key and now I cannot do it because I don't have the password). Is there any way for me to get back into my saved logins? I am using the old computer to work from home and cannot complete any work now. The company sent me a brand new laptop, but all of my logins and passwords are on the old computer tha now wants a master password.

I tried following the steps on this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can to no avail. It doesn't work under safe mode either. Other browsers on this same machine load the site just fine. Anything else I can test?

I try to add the two-step-authentication to my account, but when I scan the QR-code and enter the generated security code I get the error message "two-step-authentication required"; so it tells me I have to enable two-step-authentication before I can enable two-step-authentication?

I have a Firefox account. I signed out of my account and then signed in with my 90 yr. old father's Firefox login since he had a question about storing passwords. Now when I'm signed in as him, all of my personal logins and passwords are in his account. When he signs in at his home, will he see my personal logins? If so, how do I ensure my personal info is completely deleted from his account?

One other question: He wants Firefox to remember his Gmail address, but wants to manually type in his Gmail password. Is there any way to do this? The only options I could find were to delete both his login and password or remember both his login and password.

Recently, I installed an SSD on my computer, which also has my old HHD with my current Firefox account Information.

However, after having had this for a long while, I have forgotten my password and have no recovery keys. I have tried backing up my history, but all I managed to backup was my bookmarks and passwords.

If I were to reset my Sync password in the HHD before switching to the SSD, will I lose all my history and cookies? Is there any other way to manually backup my data without using Sync, or at least to make sure resetting my password won't result in my account data being lost?

Any help or suggestion is appreciated.

Dear community, I forgot my password for my firefox account. To sync my new laptop I need it... So I found the article, which says, I can create a recovery key and use it to keep all my settings after I changed my password. But to create a recovery key, the system asks me to fill in my old password. So I can not create a recovery key. Maybe I make a mistake somewhere on the way... Is there anybody, who can help me? Thank you very much! Petra
