Or use: Password Exporter -
You can export the file as CSV and import that in a spread sheet.

Save this page to local disk, and then use File > Open File.. to open it.

Host, Username, and Password columns are displayed in the browser window and can be printed.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

Also referenced on: ... _passwords
There is also a link to the site of the-edmeister with a version for Firefox 3 (Minefield) in that article (code by me).

Hey Ed Mullen, I saw the response I needed but w/o directions on how to save

to hard disc. I have come to realize I depend to much on software that is not available on FF3. I like FF2 but don't like its hoggish nature

Fine, exactly what I'm looking for! But I don't get it working.....
I have my old ff3 on drive N: is that why it doesn't work for me?
Was adviced here from answers on my original question on viewtopic.php?f=38&t=932775
Thanks in advance for your help!

You need to save that page on your computer and then open it via File > Open File or drag the file to empty space on the tab bar. If you confirm the security pop-up and supply the Master Password when asked for then you should see the decoded names and passwords.

Save this page: ... swords.htm

I believe that browser windows are saved by Windows in various places, such as caches. That would seem to make listing passwords in a browser window rather insecure. Using the export method to export as CVS to a spreadsheet would seem more secure. Any thoughts on this from other users? Thanks.
Cheers, Bill
