G'day folks.
I need to Export my passwords out of Firefox 78.0.2 but it appears this new Firefox Lockwise THING has no options to do so.

Is there an option somewhere to Export passwords and I can't find it?

Thanks
Ax

Firefox 79 will come out in a few days with builtin code in Lockwise to export the passwords to CSV.

Hi folks.
I went to the topic noted by "morat" copied his bit of script into my UserContent and as we say "Bobs yer uncle", problem sorted.

Thanks

Hi again... :-)

Supplementary question.
How do I excise, remove all passwords in Firefox in one go?

I really don't want to sit here and Delete them one at a time. :-(

Thanks
Ax

Tools > Options > Privacy & Security > Saved Logins & hit the "Remove all" button.
Close & re-open Firefox.

Ah! yes, well.
There is no "Remove all" button, just the single Remove (Trash bin) button.

Sorry, but as I am not running v78 yet, cannot really assist.

Why do "they" keep changing/removing basic operations.....I don't know.

Can you select one then use the SHIFT key to select the rest?

If you want to remove all the logins then simply delete logins.json in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed.
See the about:support page for a button to go to the profile folder.

Thanks for that thought .
I was assuming something a bit more sophisticated than just deleting a file(s) in the Profile would be available.

IIRC. Both logins.json and Key4.db need deleting, but of course I could be wrong. :(

Thanks

The logins.json file contains the password., The Key4.db file holds the encryption key to allow use of the passwords which are stored in encrypted format. So just deleting the former is sufficient.

A very useful bit of info, the function difference between the two files.

Thanks
