Password Exporter

Information to help future users Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After reading a number of reviews, I decided that people were trying to do things that were just plain not working and they were breaking the files in their attempts. This add-on works for me every time. This is advice to future users that want to use Password Exporter to change their passwords on a site.

1. Save the new password. Do not export and try to use any editor to change the original password.
2. Go to Tools >Options >Security tab in Firefox and click to show passwords. Highlight the line you want to remove and delete the old password.
3. Export your passwords in plain XML to a different drive and encrypt or password protect the drive or folder where your exported file is.
4. Do not try to export as Obfuscated CSV or XML. You will never get anything to import. Same goes for plain CSV files. I tried that myself.
5. Special characters can be saved and will import as of Firefox 18 and above. I can import to Firefox and Palemoon browsers as I like this way.

I am using v26.0 at this time. XML editors, Libre or other programs that handle CSV files add characters to the files. If you feel you must dabble with trying to change the password outside of the browser, you do so at your own peril. Use a plain text editor such as Wordpad for Windows, and users of Linux know their way around to know which editors to use. However, I urge following the instructions in 1-3 as I wrote above.

I sent a message to fligtar as he has moved on to other Mozilla development. I doubt there will be updates to this add-on, but we can hope. As I have posted above, I have found what has worked for me. If you figure out how to directly e-mail fligtar about issues, write like you're telling a friend about your experience. Don't be rude. Be precise with the problems.

People seem confused that there is no information right away. You have to install it and then browse for a few days and then check out the graph. Like others, I don't understand the block, etc screen as it does nothing. Overall, it shows where I go and how many places some sites are sharing my visit. Just a single click can go to 14 sites on a few sites.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5).

I have been using this search engine for 6 months and love the IP anonymous searches. I did find that Google still puts a tracking cookie in your browser so it is not totally safe from Googles tracking your searches. If you don't use Google, just remove all G cookies from your history. Otherwise, this is an awesome search engine option with optional proxy to visit your search results. For the totally paranoid users! ;-)

Didn't know about supercookies until my buddy showed me this one.
Macromedia cookies aren't that super. Kill em with a slice of pie
