Transfering Site Passwords to new Palemoon.

Unread postby Caluser2000 » Sat, 30 Jun 2018, 05:43

I've just installed Palemoon via apt and want to transfer my site passwords from my old Palemoon installation extracted to my hhd(ie not installed via apt). Is there a way I can transfer my old passwards over to the new installation? Thanks in advance.

With PM closed, I believe all you need to do is to copy key3.db & signons.sqlite (from your Profile Folder) from old to new.

Backup first & test.

Thanks for the reply. I don't have a user profile set up on Pale Moon and those files don't appear on the default installation. I've taken a screenshot of the sites/passwords/username and will use those to transfer the data over.

You cannot 'set up' 'a user profile' for Pale Moon. therube was referring to the profile folder that Pale Moon creates where your preferences, history, add-ons, site passwords, etc. are stored. I'm not sure exactly where it is on Linux, perhaps someone else can point you to it.

A new Pale Moon installation should still use the same profile... If not, copying the files will be less work than manually copying everything from a screenshot! Unless you've already finished.
