How to Import and Export Firefox Passwords

Its definitely hard to remember the usernames and passwords for all the websites that we visit daily. The benefit of using a smart browser like Firefox is that it saves the login credentials within the Firefox password manager and retrieves them automatically when you visit a particular website thus allowing you to access it.

But what if you want to print out that login credentials list for future reference or want to save it as a document list somewhere within your operating system. Password Export, a Firefox addon, is there to help you in this regard.

This Firefox addon will let you export a CSV/XML formatted list of all the login credentials stored within the Firefox password manager. This list will have the usernames, passwords, emails and URLs of all the sites that you have ever logged into through Firefox.

Not only can you export the list but you can also import it on another PC or operating system (e.g. Ubuntu) so that you don’t have to enter your login credentials again and again when you visit known websites daily.

Password Exporter can be installed from the link below:

    Nice find! I tend to rely on Firefox’s built in credential storage, but there are times when I format, or delete the cache purposely and struggle to remember the credentials. I have started keeping track of important credentials in an excel file, but this seems to be less of a hassle.

    Nice info.

    NOT NICE INFO…IT DOES NOT WORK. I have over 50+ passwords & corresponding sites in multiple types of CSV/XML files. half it returned a parsing error / other half acted like the import had succeeded without problems when in fact it had succeeded at doing absolutely nothing – not even an error message. Do not waste your time with this Firefox extension.
