Import passwords from FF58+

Unread postby JustOff » Mon, 17 Dec 2018, 17:59

Due to repeated requests, I finally implemented the basic support for importing passwords from Firefox 58+ (key4.db). To do this, you need to navigate to the desired profile and select the logins.json file in the import dialog. Master password protected data is not supported yet, you must first disable it in the source browser.

At the moment, this feature should be considered as experimental, so do not forget to backup your workplace.
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

Re: Import PM passwords into a clean PM install ?

Unread postby bawldiggle » Sat, 05 Jan 2019, 00:06

PM has been very unstable over several months, with a new profile there has been a marginal improvement but not brilliant.
A clean install is my next step.

:?: If I copy the old profile to a safe folder (with PM closed of course !) ... can I direct Password Backup Tool to the "safe" folder ?
- I have about 4 or more years of passwords and the thought of losing them is too much to "bear"

Thank you :)

I use Password Exporter 1.3.4, and what I would do is export passwords before backing up my profile.

Can you not do that with PBT?

@doofy :)

I have not got that far yet. Still planning how to save (recycle) Passwords Metadata, Cookies and cookie-Exclusions.
Thanks for the tip to Password Exporter 1.3.4 ... I will have a look at it.

I do not recommend you to use Password Exporter, as it contains bugs that are fixed in Password Backup Tool. You can export your passwords from the old profile using PBT and then import them into a new one, or simply exit the browser and copy logins.json and key3.db from the old to the new profile.
