Firefox Password Storage:

Two files in Firefox User Profile are used to store saved logins and passwords: 1) signons.sqlite or logins.json - database with saved web addresses, encrypted user names and passwords.
2) key3.db (up to version 57) / key4.db (version 58 and above) - database with encryption keys. Firefox Master Password protects keys stored in key.db. If Master password is not set or is known encryption keys can be instantly extracted from the database to decrypt saved logins and passwords.If Master password is set and unknown (lost) it has to be recovered first. Encryption methods used are quite strong and recoverability depends on length and complexity, however recovery speed is relatively high. Firefox Password allows you to set several password recovery attacks in a queue. Advanced mixed attacks are available for precise search range setup as well as common dictionary and brute-force options.
