this is awesome! If I have physical access to your computer I can use this to export all the passwords stored in Firefox in a plain-text format. I don't even need to know your master password!

I really wanted to like this--it's well-integrated and thought-out. HOWEVER, any exporter that won't *import* can't be trusted. I save 408 passwords using the tool...then tried to import. It repeatedly failed after between 100-300 passwords. I had to remove it.

Excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was just about to take numerous screenshots of saved passwords (you know how you can only see 10 at a time?) when I had one of those rare lightbulb moments and decided to google for a tool. So here I am. Within minutes I'd installed and exported all my passwords and saved that file in a safe location. Many thanks!

The idea is great, after system fault or a new PC just easy restore of the passwords. But at the moment it no longers works with my htaccess logins. So they are all lost now :(.

Fix for "Can't add a login with both a httpRealm and formSubmitURL" Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I made a fix for this (at least on Firefox 3) here:

It's nolonger support. It can not import the CVS files have over 150 fields. Another security problem is: "The password is decrypted easily!". So be care about this.

But i thinks it a useful add-on!

Dude, I'm screwed. Exported my passwords. Now can not import them. - XML error on FF3.
Do you work on updating your add-on as often as you post articles on your blog?

I see I'm not alone here.

Protected? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a really cool addon, save me a lost of time copying the ID/PW fro another computer.


BUT, in my impression, both import and export is on the menu tab, anybody who knows the trick might steal your ID/password in just a click away, slight chance ruin the password database in importing a set of (fake) password.

So, my suggestion is: when exporting password, or even installing this addon, a password verification is mandatory.

How's this idea?

Awesome tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Must have tool for taking password backups of your firefox. When I did an export, I realized the number of passwords I had created over time and used FF to just save. I dint remember half of them after saving them.

Easier and Safer Way Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I just copied these files from my old firefox profile folder to my new firefox profile folder

signons.txt (all files - sometimes there are numbered versions)

key3.db

That brought over all of my passwords and I didn't have to trust a software plugin not to do anything nefarious with my passwords while it was exporting them.

Hope this helps!

Easy to use and works well. It has assisted me in moving between at least four installations, so I can attest to both export and import working.

export ok, import zero Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Using Firefox 3.0.3 the add-on lets you I export pass words but can't import them, at least not csv files.

Exporting the passwords (and rotecting the exported file with a password) helps to find lost passwords and conflicts when you tried to enter a pw-protected site with a wrong password. This is helpful as FF remembers all passwords, even the wrong ones.

So, use it for what it tells you it can do : export passwords. And nothing else.

Parsing Error Help Rated 3 out of 5 stars

If you get a parsing error, try to load the xml into something that parses it and tells you what the error is.

I tried to import into MS Access and found that one of my accounts has a "sideways pointing carat" or "less than" sign (I can't type the symbol or my review gets cut off - it's an HTML/XML symbol that surrounds every element).

Let's try this - the html code (or actual symbol if we're lucky) is: <

Once I got rid of that, my p/w's imported just fine.

BTW a podcast I like is freedomainradio.com. Enjoy.

Thanks Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sweet. Reloading firefox and this is going to help a lot. I came back here to figure out how it was encrypting, it doesn't say in the addon itself, I see its internal and wont need any password or anything to decrypt for now, which is fine for what I'm doing. Thanks.
