This extension allows you to export and import your saved passwords and
rejected sites between computers. Your passwords will be exported to an
XML or CSV file and can be encrypted.
Supports Firefox 1.5 – 3.0a1, Thunderbird 1.5 – 3.0a1, and Flock.
Where to find it:
Firefox 1.5 & Thunderbird Only: Tools -> Options -> Privacy
pane -> Passwords tab -> View Saved Passwords button ->
Import/Export Passwords tab
All: Tools -> Options -> Privacy (or Security) pane -> Import/Export Password button
NOTICE: The “encryption” is mainly to prevent casual users from
stumbling upon your passwords. It will in no way stop someone who
actually wants to see them, as they could just import your file anyway.
Bug: If you have more than one password entry with the exact same host,
username, and password, it is considered a duplicate by Password
Manager and will not be imported correctly. Bugzilla 344241
(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=344241) has been created
for this and I am trying to find a work-around as well.
