This new 'update' has just caused me to lose all my tabs and bookmarks. The new version is c**p and it is awful. I went to the page to install the previous version I liked and worked perfectly and when I installed I now have none of my tabs and bookmarks. My pc is nearly unusable and I am now out of business until I can get them back if I can. It will be months to try to get back to where I was and will never get all of what I had. Is there any way to fix this? I need help immediately.

Following the latest Firefox update, my computer no longer saves passwords or logins from day to day. I have checked all the settings all of which are as they should be. I have also cleared my cookies and browsing history but it makes no difference, when I log in the following day none have been saved. Please help - I am at my wits end.

Yesterday, my search engine, which was regularly Google, got bugged by searchmarquis. After hours of trying to resolve the issue, I resorted to refreshing Firefox. Once the browser was up and running, I tried to recover my passwords and my logins in Firefox Lockwise. I followed steps from pages on the support and previously used solutions on the site, but none have been successful. I have a folder entitled, "Old Firefox Data," and tried importing it into Firefox Lockwise, however, every attempt was met with an error message.

Hi guys,

do I assume correctly, that if after-crash update to 89.0 wiped clean my sessionstore-backups folder, I've lost all my 50+ tabs forever? Firefox crashed, I started it and it opened with no tabs, like a new installation. I immediately went to sessionstore-backups folder and found that Firefox wiped it, created new empty recovery.jsonlz4 and recovery.baklz4 files and no other files are there (no, there are no alternative profiles in my Firefox directory).

I tried to recover deleted files using Disk Drill, however they seem to be corrupt, because the History Scrounger is not able to decode them. Does anyone have any other ideas, or is this it and I just have to move on? It was on my work laptop, so recovering the tabs would be extremely helpful and would save me lots of time and possibly some trouble too.

Thank you, Sam

how do I restore history and bookmark files? I have Linux mint 17.7.1 Rebecca. There was a message that there was three updates waiting (one of which was from Firefox). I got the message all three downloaded successfully and I was "up to date". My normal boot up screen was now replaced with a firefox info screen. All bookmarks and history disappeared. I am not familiar with Linux so if there is a restore to prev fix I would be grateful for a step by step fix. This same thing happened on my windows 7 os when I got an update message but that was a simple fix of just restoring to previous day. The Firefox version that is the latest offending # 78.7.1

Hello folks

I hope everyone is doing good :)

I 'refreshed' firefox as suggested. The guidance suggested that all my logins and passwords would be preserved but when I check the Logins and Passwords all have been cleared. I was able to find key4.db file in the Old Firefox Data folder created after the refresh but I couldn't find the second required file "logins.json" to recover my logins succesfully.

Any suggestions or advice?

Thanks

My firefox default page suddenly got scrambled. Top sites got completely reset and my highlights were changed to seemingly random pages. I checked my history for the pages listed in highlights and they were pages I had visited on the 25th of January, which is not recent. They also seemed to not update when I visit new sites which it usually does. I then noticed the history does not have any entries newer than 25th of January. And going to new pages does not get registered in the history.

I restarted in troubleshooting mode and history started to register again, but now it has deleted everything in my history. Logged in accounts and passwords seem to be unaffected. Same for bookmarks.

What happened? How can I fix this? Can I regain my lost history?

I tried an idea I read where renamed places.sqlite to places.sqlite.old and places.sqlite.corrupt to places.sqlite.corrupt which restored the situation to the first situation, where the history is frozen at 25th of January and does not update.

Never had this happen so it freaks me out a little. I was making a purchase on ebay and my username and password didn't come up automatically as they always to. I went to my online email and the same thing. I was afraid to log in to anything thinking that maybe someone had hacked firefox or something and had set something up to get my information. Or does this happen sometimes and there is nothing to it? Or did some link mess up all of a sudden and it can be fixed? If so, how? Or do I just have to re-log in to everything and have it save them all over again? Hope this isn't to confusing but I'd appreciate any help. thanks

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?

Do not want to switch profiles. I have them saved on a doc, but it is tedious. Would not import to Lockwise.

Save Password is NOT saving passwords, either.

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 cannot seem to retrieve any of my Firefox data. My bookmarks, plugins, login and password data are just gone. Years of data are gone. There is no "old profile data" and oddly enough none of the profiles have anything in them anyways. I have tried everything suggested and NOTHING has worked. Most people have no clue about the files and folders and definitely shouldn't be moving stuff around as most of the threads have suggested. What is a key3 or 4 file? Why should I have to move it? Where does one move it to? None of the threads on this topic are helpful and there's no way to just ask a person who works here? Considering this seems to happen to a lot of people it should be made much easier to do. I can't even import my old logins from Safari. Is years of my data just gone? If Im signed into my Firefox account shouldn't it be there, or what is the point of having one? I need a very easy solution to this extremely frustrating issue.

The title says it all.

I sat down this morning with planned work to do on my computer and when I tried to log into a site found there was no automatic completion of username and password.

Checking my saved logins and passwords, I found there were no saved logins and passwords!

Apparently, this is an improvement to Firefox called Lockwise!

So, where do I find my saved logins and passwords, please?

And how do I get back to a version of Firefox which doesn't use Lockwise?
