Windows 7: Firefox passwords are on old drive and cannot get to them.

Firefox passwords are on old drive and cannot get to them.

I need to login to some websites which e-mails I lost a long time ago. The passwords are on my old windows 7 installation with Firefox 25, on an old-sata hdd which Windows installation I have broken for the fun of it. Because I moved to a new SSD-install of windows 7.

Now using my new SSD-win7 installation opening the old FF 25 on that older drive, Firefox only lets me see the new passwords I entered recently on my new setup. it does not let me see the passwords on that older FF 25 installation.

Any workaround advice?

Firefox, W7, And Passwords ?
Hello, I imagine a lot of you folks are using Firefox. Works fine, except for one thing, which I would really like to get to function. It's their Password Manager. Under Tools/Options/Security, I do have the remember Passwords box checked.
