    Have new W10 laptop. How do I get my FF pswds into new FF installation


    Hi,

    Have new W10 laptop. How do I get my FF pswds into new FF installation?

    That's about as descriptive as I can with 70 characters. Most of the time I get the statement:
    "It's easy, just import them... how do you import them when you FF is on your W7 laptop?"

    I was able to extract the FF pswds into a CSV and that should be all I need for importing them as
    I have been doing for over 30 yrs with many other programs. However I don't think FF will allow that.

    Ge Whiz, in 1969 we put a man on the moon, see attached image.

    klxdrt10 did you remember to include your Windows Version number?
    I'm sorry, I just got it yesterday & it's in an office in another area. I'm handicapped an can't get to it easily.
    I will get it & post it in my profile. Also W10 locked me out right after I fired it up & it's the weekend.
    W10 is new to me & seems cattiwampus compared to all the ver of MS Dos 3.2, & Win thru W7 minus ME.

    Hi, if you wish, you can transfer your whole profile:

    Passwords:
    How can I copy passwords from one firefox to another ? | Firefox Support Forum | Mozilla Support

    I simply used Google and searched for
    transfer firefox passwords to new pc

    Firefox has a forum- searching that forum often offers useful results.
    And of course you can post product specific questions there.

    A newer version of the instructions you want is it
    Recovering important data from an old profile - Firefox Help

    {FF has changed some of the filenames it uses so the newer version is better}
