Import/Export Passwords in PM 25.0

Unread post by tman801 » 2014-10-26, 19:08

As a new user of PM after FF Australis I have made Pm my main browser. I was wondering how to import or export Passwords in PM 25.0.
Password Exporter 1.2.1 works in 24.7.2 but not in 25.0. Not sure about FEBE.
Is there an app for PM 25.0 that will let me Import/Export my paswords?
I am dual booting W7 and Ubuntu 14.04.
Thanks for any replies.

Hi,

a trivial solution would be to copy the password database from your "old" profile to the "new" one. It is named ~/.moonchild productions/pale moon/<some cryptic characters>.default/signons.sqlite.

You also need to copy key3.db

Thanks for the replies. I have updated PM in w7 to 25.0.2, I believe that is right, and I can still use Password Exporter by going to:
Tools
Add-ons
Password Exporter
Preference
and I get the window to Import or Export. It works fine.
I have not tried it in Ubuntu 14.04 yet as I am not at home at this time. Will report back when I return home.

Thanks.

I have just updated Ubuntu 14.04 to PM 25.0.2. I just checked to be sure I could still use Password Exporter 1.2.1 and I could.
Before I used to use these steps to Import or Export Passwords:
1-Edit
2-Preferences
3-Choose Import or Export

Now I go to:
1-Tools
2-Add-ons
3-Password Exporter Preferences
4-Choose Import or Export

Same result just a different way to get there. Maybe this will help someone else.

Thanks for a fine Browser. :D
