I am a senior user and need assistance. I am unable to clear history. I followed directions sent by Fred McD, and inadvertently removed my profile. I have saved the profile, but cannot open Firefox replace the profile information. Can someone help?

Also, if someone should ask a question, how do I reply?

Thank you, Blair Ryan [removed email from public]

The last Firefox updates have suddenly created havoc. None, absolutely none of the websites that I frequently visit will have my login information saved even though when I view logins in the settings mode, they are all listed there with the correct passwords. I am not technical and would sincerely appreciate a tutorial of some kind as to how to correct this egregious oversite on behalf of the Mozilla team.

For some strange reason Firefox is not logging me into my favorite websites automatically any more. I have to manually log in every time. The websites' login pages are automatically filled when I move the cursor to the Username and Password fields, but I still have to click Log In. As soon as I log out and log in I am asked to "Sign In" again. I tried manually adding a website to the "Saved Logins" but that did not help. Using Windows 10 64bit.

The Bookmarks are all there, but the url is missing. None of the extensions (including ones I've paid for are there)

The logins weren't there, but are now restored from a previous install.

What I have done...

1. exported bookmarks to html and checked them out there. They were broken there as well.

2. Refreshed Firefox,

3. Restarted the PC.

4. Uninstalled Firefox (and discovered that I had both X32 and X64 on my machine) - uninstalled both. 5. Reinstalled Firefox x64 (current version 86.0.1)

6. the places.sqlite files from previous restores have the same problem.

I've started to refresh the links for the toolbar which has taken me awhile. I don't want to have to do it for all my hundred's of bookmarks.

Ideally what I'd like to do is uninstall the latest update, look at the bookmarks to see if they are still stuffed, and if the extensions are there. If they are ok, then I want to back the bookmarks to html. Reinstall the update, then restore the bookmarks. (And make a list of the extension names so I can reinstall them).

My guess is either that the sqlite file has corrupted, or the update has changed the file layout for the bookmarks, etc, and it's unable to interpret the links.

I have three devices, a desk top, a laptop and an iPad. The desktop is running a very outdated version of Firefox which means it is not compatable just to update it. The forum tried to help me with this a while back, but it was deemed not to be possible, and the best way would have been to do a fresh new install, but there was noway to save log-ins/passwords bookmarks. My devices all have the Firefox sync and that is so far working well. My question is, if I dragged my PC's Firefox into the present by performing a fresh new install, would my synced items install ok....after invoking the Sync feature on the new install. Logic tells me this should be so, as it worked ok with the new iPad, but I know from experience that logic doesn't always come into play. (Windows7) Many thanks

Hey, All of the saved logins and passwords are gone while the bookmarks remain.

I noticed that logins and passwords disappeared after the computer turned off unexpectedly due to low battery and unstable power connection couple times in a few minute interval.

How do I get back logins and passwords?

Hello, Every time I restart Firefox or it crashes or power cuts or anything, place.sqlite file gets corrupted and I have to replace the new file with the .corrupt file. This has been happening for over a year now, but my computer is always on and I turn it off maybe once every 4-5 months unless I'm forced to restart by a software or by power cuts or stuff. Lately I have been having issues with my Windows and I have to restart my computer quite often and it is very annoying. This happens whether I close Firefox with the X or using the Exit button or even if I keep it open and restart the computer. My places file is 75MBs. I have the same one since 2014. I'm using Windows 10 and latest Firefox edition. Any ideas?

Hi,

I was refraining myself to do any update of Firefox on Windows 10 PC for several months but yesterday I was so annoyed by pop up messages requesting me to update that I gave up and proceed with update... Then disaster happened: everything is lost. All my customized settings, all bookmarks that my life depend on, everything is lost. Please can someone help me survive...

I checked for FirefoxOLD folder if there is one (e.g. on Desktop) anywhere on hard drive of my PC but there isn't. All self done solutions I tried but failed produced around 15+ additional profiles because I had to delete ( * ) Profiles INI single file otherwise Firefox couldn't be opened due to error message. When I deleted INI, I was able to open firefox with LOST extremely important data. Every opening produced I believe 3 new profiles.


( * ) I still have them in Recycle bin.

I went to about:profiles and there are only two: the one being used (lost data) and one more. When I open "one more" profile in different browsers all my data is remaining to be gone.

Currently in total are 18 profiles in C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles folder. At least 15 of them are from failed solution attempts. The thing that worries me the most is the single profile, out of other 3, that should had my data available. I used it as the only folder in "Profiles" folder. Then I used to run Firefox and data is missing even there. This particular profile that brought me the most of hopes is NOT available via about:configs and the thing that worried me the most inside the folder of particular profile that I guess should have the data is the fact that the folder is almost entirely empty. Only two files inside: search-metadata.json and times.json

Can someone please help me get my data back?

Please I had really important data but cannot recover it on my own :'-( oh my god...

Hi folks, the user deleted his firefox completely. But he had saved his profile folder. So I installed the latest version of firefox and loaded all the content from the saved profile folder into the new profile folder - and he got his old ff back again. But all his pwds where gone - but that's okay, I made a printout of it all. Now he comes back to me with the problem, that none of the pwds enterd new will be stored. I was via teamvier on his pc - and he was right. I enterd a pwd, press the save button, get into the page, quit the page, call the page again - no pwd appeared. I compared all the setup parameter with mine, where everything works fine - there was no difference. So what can I do ? Is it a lockwise problem ? Thanks for any answer Michael

I decided to clean up my password file and get rid of hundreds of logins that were no longer active.

I exported the passwords to logins.csv and Removed all passwords from Lockwise. Then I imported the CSV file into a spreadsheet and edited the file, and exported a new copy of logins.csv.

Since FF Lockwise would not allow import from csv files, I imported the csv file into Chrome, then I opened FF and Imported passwords from Chrome. This was successful, with a total of 592 passwords imported.

But every time I close FF the next time I open it, all passwords are gone. The logins.json file and the logins-backup.json file are in the profiles folder C:\Users\Jerry\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\04bmixuw.default.

I turned off SYNC but this didn't help; I turned SYNC back ON but it didn't help either.

This is now driving me crazy. Can anyone explain how to stop this insanity?

FYI I tried to upload images but the Upload Image feature never worked. Little circle kept spinning.
