Hello. My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Expert:  Isaac Franklin replied 10 months ago.

If you deleted your browser all together and didnt back up the information, it is deleted.

However, your saved passwords could still be in your computer depending on how you set up your

manage sites/passwords. This will depend on what browser you are using. Even if the passwords are gone,

we can try to recover them if your computer was not set up to save it.

Let me know what you would like to do. I am sending you a remote support offer incase you want me to do this for you

and search that way. ONLY click accept on the REMOTE SUPPORT OFFER if you want to proceed that way. If not, just keep

replying written, ignore the remote request feature and we will continue that way until resolved.

Hey there, Isaac Franklin,

I apologize I have not been able to respond til now.

Let's attempt to do this w/o the remote hook-up.

If it is a big problem - I will live w/o them but I do use the Log-in/password ***** often since i don't always remember them.

So I am using Mozilla Firefox

Where should I look?

I did not delete the browser.

In your past two emails you have stated that you need more info.

Could you please be more specific about what you need?

Thank you

It continues to erase my saved logins/passwords as well as the history. It seems to be happening regularly. I am using Mozilla Firefox and it is the latest version.

Hello again!

I can help you with the issue you described; however, to fully check all the possible options for retrieving lost logins, I suggest we establish a secure remote session so that I can see the problem myself and help you directly.

Let me if you would like that.
