Firefox lost all my logins/passwords. This happened last year and now it happens again. I've tried to find the old logins.json file and of course it does not work with it. It is empty. I'm using linux and there is no problem with any antivirus, it is simply a Firefox 'classical' error!

WHY is this happening? What is in the mind of the programmer responsible for this error? I can't understand why is he unable to keep a single file intact?

Why Mozilla is blaming the user for not having a backup. Firefox is messing this file, not the user! Why don't you fix Firefox and stop blaming the user? Why don't you simply FIX THE PROBLEM? You are "working on it" for years. Is it rocket science to JUST LET THE FILE ALONE?

Hi everyone, I would like to know the way of saving passwords. Are they saved as plaintext ? Or ciphered and locally saved ? Is the Firefox solution as safe as Dashlane or other crypto-secure ways to save passwords ? Is there a technical documentation from Firefox about this topic ? Thanks in advance for your answers ;)

I've bought a new Win10 PC to (eventually) replace my old one.

I've signed up for a Mozilla account on the old PC, signed into it from the new PC and the favourites, history etc have come across ok onto the new one. The saved logons however haven't.

How can I get my saved logons to sync across from the old PC to the new one?

Hello, I just stumbled upon a very interesting "feature" (I'd say bug). If one goes to the history, and then clicks on "Forget about this site", one would assume that this site would be removed from the history. However, in addition to that happening, all these site's logins are also completely erased from Lockwise, so now I have to recover passwords on all sites where I did this :-( That is certainly not wanted. Is there a way to prevent this?

I will give this one more try and then I will delete this program.

I want to save some specific login information. I get it to work right and then a week or so later it erases all of the information.

Reset it so often is worse than it not saving.

Why does it delete the information when I don't want it to.

Hello, I recently updated firefox to the latest version (91.0) and just noticed some logins are lost. I only noticed my google accounts passwords are missing but who knows if there are others. I mean I have encountered the problem a long time ago when all of my passwords were not imported and I had to manually retrieve them but now I cannot do that because the profile was indeed imported but somehow a few passwords were omitted... I tried to find some other older profile but there seems to be none but the curent default one Please help

On four occasions during the past three months, Amazon has refused my log in to their site, stating that I've not used the correct password. When this occurs, I look at my 'password box' and can see that the number of characters (the black dots) are of a far greater number than the number of characters in my current password by more than 200. When I go to 'Security' in Firefox to view my password, it has indeed changed to a random selection of 200 plus characters. When I erase these characters and retype my original password, Amazon will accept the change and I can log in.

My question: Although I don't expect anyone to know why Amazon is doing this, I'm baffled as to how Firefox can be manipulated by Amazon so as to change my password.

Has anyone experienced this and is there any advice? I'm hopeful that an actual Amazon tech will have a response to this as well as the community.

Thank you,

Placerville

Help! After many, many, happy, trouble-free years with FF (thanks folks) I just updated to FF 94.0. FF 94 is failing to use my saved logins, is silently failing to save new logins, seems to have forgotten my master password and won't let me set a new master password (which is probably a good thing!).

I see from searches here and elsewhere that the failure to migrate master password and login has been a serious issue, for a lot of people, for a long time, when upgrading FF. What I am still not clear on, despite reading many posts, is how to recover from this situation and seek your guidance on this.

In my profile I see:

  • key3.db (last updated by old version of FF)
  • key4.db (updated/created by new FF 94)
  • logins.json (Seems still full of all my login entries and salted passwords, not touched by FF 94)

Thanks

Then I tried forget password and tried to use a recovery code to reset my account in an attempt to restart it like a computer but that does not work. I cannot add 2AF to my account. Any help appreciated. It also seems to be recognizing a email that I no longer use. I have had this problem in the past but ignored.
