#30685: Unable to use any saved passwords (TorBrowser win64 8.5; & also previous

 Forms & Passwords
 ON      Remember logins and passwords for websites
 Use custom settings for history
 OFF     Always use private browsing mode
 OFF     Remember my browsing and download history
 OFF     Remember search and form history
 ON      Clear history when Tor Browser closes (all 7 suboptions ON)

 security.nocertdb = true (box to save the password does not appear at all)
 security.nocertdb = false (box does appear, but password is not saved)

 Saved Logins ALWAYS STAY blank/empty.

 Although passwords are saved into logins.json (in plain-text nonetheless)
 they can not be used at all!

 logins.json is being written to/populated, but every/each site has
 multiple "id":
 created (seems one for each/every login) with new/different "guid":

 replaced key4.db, logins.json with working ones from 32-bit version --
 works OK
 for already saved sites, anything added/new is NOT WORKING AT ALL

 please also see #30209
 (logins.json data is added unencrypted, maybe that's why people have
 problems with saved login data)

 Thanks for looking into this.

 32-bit version (at least 8.0.8) works properly with regards to this issue
