How to recover passwords for Firefox 64-bit?

Firefox is another well-known browser, but unlike Chromium based browsers, password recovery is a little bit different. Advanced Password Recovery Suite can easily recover login details for Firefox 32-bit, even if they are encrypted with a Master Password. Please be aware in this case, the user must input the Master Password manually.

What About if your Firefox is 64-bit?

Click on BROWSERS section in the upper left corner and then click on Custom Recovery Password icon at the bottom right corner.

Select Browser based on Firefox and in the Custom Profile Path provide the Profile Path you want to recover the passwords. Please make sure the Path contains the file “logins.json” which actually is a file where passwords are kept encrypted.

Probably you will notice that the username and password fields, are shown blank. The main reason for this is that Advanced Password Recovery Suite is 32-bit application, so decryption modules for Firefox 64-bit could not be loaded. There is a really simple solution for this. All you need to do is in Installation Directory provide a path where you have a 32-bit version of nss3.dll file on your hard drive.

In this case as shown on the picture, we are going to recover passwords for Firefox 64-bit using decryption modules from a portable Thunderbird 32-bit Mail Client, or even you can try with another 32-bit browser based on Firefox like Comodo IceDragon, Tor and etc. Then you will need to provide a path to the Installation Directory for those browsers. Click on Recover Password button, and that’s it!
