How can I restore passwords from backup in the computer?

Recently I have backup my computer factory quite a reset. When I restored it all he did not return the registered mozilla bookmarks or passwords. I was able to find and restore bookmarks but have not been able to restore passwords. I am looking for a solution to find and store, copy or print the list of passwords in the backup copy.

Thank you

You can only access the passwords stored in signons.sqlite if you have the correct signons3.txt file that stores the encryption key to decrypt the names and passwords.
If copy the two files in the current Firefox profile folder does not work then you will have a file signons3.txt evil.

Make sure that you have copied both files to the correct location with Firefox closed.

You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:

  • Windows Vista. I can't restore data from backup after reinstalling windows.

    Regularly, I backed up my Dell laptop Vista hard disk independent. I just had to reinstall windows and now when I go to restore my data, I get a message saying the backup location is not available. I ran a backup on the same drive as before, but the problem remains. Even backup always lists all the backups I made before resettlement. How can I restore my data?

    4. "Type in the command prompt" "" powercfg.exe /Hibernate on.
    5. Go to the options to be able to enter the control panel by typing in "Power Options."
    6. You will see the different power options. The one you have selected, that's what you are currently using. Click on "change plan settings".
    7. Click on "change power avancΘs."
    8. Scroll down to the battery and you will see the options of low battery and critical battery responses. Make sure they are set for the hibernation.
    I hope that after these steps, your problems. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    original title: how to restore my data express form in outlook that was placed in the trash, I moved an email in a folder and all other data files were sent to the Recycle Bin

    1. Please do not use Outlook as a shortcut to Outlook Express. They are two completely different programs.
    2. Bak files, you see in the trash is moved when you attemptrd to move messages, i.e. an automatic backup that occurs when the compaction of your records. They were probably there already.
    If you are moving messages, first examine all records to ensure that they don't end up in the right folder, or becomes one subfolder of another. If this is not the case, read on.
    Two reasons the most common for what you describe is disruption of the compacting process, (never touch anything until it's finished), or bloated folders. More about that below.
    Why OE insists on compacting folders when I close it? :
    Why mail disappears:
    Recovery methods:
    If you are running XP/SP3, then you should have a backup of your dbx files in the Recycle Bin (or possibly the message store), copied as bak files.
    To restore a folder bak on the message store folder, first find the location of the message store.
    Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.
    In Windows XP, the .dbx files are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in the Solution Explorer, you must enable Show hidden files and folders under start | Control Panel | Folder options | View.
    Close OE and in Windows Explorer, click on the dbx to the file missing or empty file, then drag it to the desktop. It can be deleted later once you have successfully restored the bak file. Minimize the message store.
    Open OE and, if the folder is missing, create a folder with the * exact * same name as the bak file you want to restore but without the .bak. For example: If the file is Saved.bak, the new folder should be named saved. Open the new folder, and then close OE. If the folder is there, but just empty, continue to the next step.
    First of all, check if there is a bak file already in the message. If there is, and you have removed the dbx file, go ahead and rename it in dbx.
    If it is not already in the message, open the trash and do a right-click on the file bak for the folder in question and click on restore. Open the message store up and replace the .bak by .dbx file extension. Close the message store and open OE. Messages must be in the folder.
    If messages are restored successfully, you can go ahead and delete the old dbx file that you moved to the desktop.

    If you have not then bak copies of your dbx files in the Recycle Bin:
    DBXpress run in extract disc Mode is the best chance to recover messages:
    And see:
    A general warning to help avoid this in the future:
    Do not archive mail in default OE folders. They finally are damaged. Create your own folders defined by the user for mail storage and move your mail to them. Empty the deleted items folder regularly. Keep user created folders under 300 MB, and also empty as is possible to default folders.
    Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the CPUs, slows down sending and receiving and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs, account setting changes and has even been responsible for the loss of messages. Your up-to-date A / V program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more information, see: 
    And backup often.

  • How can I restore signal from my Mac Pro to my Viewsonic monitor, connected by VGA?

    I have a Pro Mac OSX version 10.7.5 running. Trendy top is a monitor 24 inch Viewsonic, the only monitor connected. Last week, everything was fine. I stopped him all night and the next morning, when I tried to start, there was no signal from the Mac to the screen.

    The screen displays a 'No Signal' message.

    I checked the entry on the monitor, and it is correctly set to PC.

    The computer starts normally. I can hear him do his thing.

    The monitor starts up normally. No flashing or spots.

    I tried restart, disconnect the monitor from the computer, just stop and unplug it, then reconnected. I tried to plug the old monitor (using VGA connection) and start again, with the same result.

    I tried to recall the NVRAM (found the instructions on this site) and it made no difference.

    It would be appropriate to get a HDMI cable to connect the?

    It seems to me that if the computer does not recognize the monitor, try another cable wouldn't make any difference, but I'm really an 'end user' at this stage and would appreciate any advice.

    Thank you!

  • How can I restore Favorites after migration to the cloud?

    This weekend, we migrated our computer system in the cloud. I was under the assumption that we were only migrate our email to the cloud.

    However, when I got to the office yesterday, I have Firefox was longer on my computer and subsequently were my favorites.

    I looked at a multitude of messages and what is seen on the fact that all is lost. I looked at the files on the C: drive and the only thing that is in these folders are what I did yesterday and today. Is it all the same to find my data from last Friday?

    Thank you

    "This weekend we migrated our computer system in the cloud."

    What was the purpose of the 'us' who did this?
    That allows you to save the user data for the purposes of upgrading a server or software on the server?
    Each user backup up to their own data, or was this fact for all users massively by the COMPUTER service company?
    Whatever it is, you have access to the saved data in the "cloud"?
    If not you personally, IT department access to these data and restore?

    Overall, my guess is that your Firefox data has not been saved then your user account on a shared central server has been deleted or "gone" due to a system upgrade. And then when the user accounts have been restored data Firefox wasn't there.
    Shear speculation on my part, without much more information on what has been done.
