I'm trying to get my passwords that were all saved in Firefox. I'm lost without the things. I thought I was covered by saving old Firefox data but I can't find my old password store and I can't get into Firefox because of the xpcom error message. I can get in if I reinstall or upgrade it though and with the upgrade, it still has all my bookmarks but the login stuff with the passwords is gone. I got the xpcom error after a system restore. I tried the updating to the newest FF and everything but the passwords kicked back on. When I realized I had some passwords that I needed and couldn't remember and couldn't find the old data file that I thought would have them, I did a system restore and I'm back to the xpcom error and can't find the old passwords. Is there anything I can do or is this a no-hoper? The current FF folder that has the login file is corrupted and I can't find the same file in my saved old data. Very confused and burnt out trying to fix this one. If you can shed some light on it, I'd really appreciate it, anybody. 

Before you judge me, know that when I do something wrong it's because I'm an idiot, not because I'm evil.
