Bug in backward compatibility Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Exported passwords (to xml file) from v.1.1 are incompatible with v.1.2.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Version 1.2 suffers from following bug:
It stores identical entries, even though it should not: So, after exporting and importing passwords following error message occurs for each identical record: "('This login already exists.' when calling method: [nsILoginManager::addLogin])".

Awesome addon! Keep up the good work.

I have recently moved from the "other" os to ubuntu and was missing all my old passwords. This extension gave me a clean option of merging saved passwords from the older profile.

1 tip: If due to some reason, it is possible to run firefox only from one profile (believe me, it can happen easily in "other" os), then follow these steps to merge passwords :
* export the currently saved passwords to xml.
* shutdown firefox
* (backup &) replace password related files (signons.sqlite & key3.db) from old profile to new profile
* restart FF -> now FF will show only passwords saved in old profile.
* import passwords from earlier export.
Voila!

XML parsing error when trying to import. make sure it works for you before your computer crashes and you didn't test it.

I'm using this for a long time now and love it. The only thing is that I have is that a compatibility-patch need to be downloaded....??? Really worth the effort. Fast and easy import and export of all your passwords.

Great add-on as it is simple to use and easy to export and import passwords, (also a life saver when you have to do a fresh install of Firefox). I am using FF 3.6.2.

As other people have reviewed, there is no masterpassword to use the add-on meaning that anyone who can access the password exporter file can gain access to all of your user names and passwords.

This add-on *does* respect and require the master password if it is enabled. HOWEVER--the add-on does appear to disable/clear the master password configuration at install time, so you must reconfigure it afterward.

Great program, though as one person pointed out there's one ginormously glaring bug - it doesn't require you to enter a master password when exporting even though one is set. Makes me kind of want to uninstall it as soon as i'm done.

no luck, FF 3.6.3 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

"XML" error when trying to import, either an xml or a csv file.
Repeated several times. I'd guess the author must know by now but just in case:


FF 3.6.3 on both computers (newish Intel Mac was the source, trying to copy the current passwords to my old G3 Powerbook to take a trip with it)

There's a FAQ link at the Password Exporter home page for a debugging tool, but when you go to that page the debugger is no longer available.

Anyone know an alternative? Or a brute force copy (which files, can I just copy them out of the Profile, put them on a USB stick, and put them into the other computer's profile to overwrite the passwords)?

Used it with FF3.6 on Fedora 12, worked perfectly but not for non Latin characters. I have some of my user names and passwords in Arabic language, and in the exported file these Arabic characters where replaced with random Latin characters. So can you please update your add-on to support Unicode.

Password Export install failed on XP Firefox 3.6 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Tried to install PW Exporter, it failed (Win XP fully updated, Firefox 3.6). Installed no error, restart Firefox. In "tools-> security" no new button. In "Tools->Add-ons" Password Exporter shows installed, options do not display, only locks the system. Uninstalled reinstalled and reinstalled Password Exporter several times, rebooted system and repeated installation, no luck. Tried same on my laptop (Vista) - no problem. Any thoughts? Thank you, Gerry

Hey Justin,
Just want to say thanks for this addon as it helped me when I received a new laptop and needed my passwords to be migrated over. It all happened without any issues.

Good on ya mate!

Rubbish Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I just spent an hour trying to work out why none of my imported passwords work. I finally realised that when exporting passwords this extension replaces several characters (even ASCII characters FFS) with escape sequences. Data integrity fail.
