I can't figure out how to copy my Firefox Quantum (65.0) passwords to Seamonkey 2.49.4.
Copying the logins.json and key3.db files from the FF profile to SM's does not work.
I have some 300 PWs so I can't use SM if I can't do this.
How is it possible to do this?

I am not sure key3.db is still used. It is supposed to be key4.db and cert9.db. You probably need secmod.db too. In any case this will probably work only using the unofficial 2.53 and then 2.57.

key3.db ceased to used by Firefox from version 58 onwards. cert9.db is a certificate database and is irrelevant to this issue.

Find a Firefox password exporter extension? Otherwise you will not be able to use any other browser, let alone SM.

For some installations cert9.db might be needed. I always copy the three and login.json. If you want the exceptions too you also need permissions.sqlite.

Unoffical 2.53 uses key4.db. NSS is at 3.40.1 from 60 right now. Plan to bring it up to 3.42 soon if no extensive backports are needed:

Password Backup Tool:

  • Export and import passwords saved in Pale Moon browser. Also allows to import from Chromium based browsers (Windows only) and Firefox 58+ (key4.db). To do so just open Import Passwords dialog and paste the path to the password database for the corresponding browser from the list below or manually navigate to the required profile and select "Login Data" or "logins.json" file. The browser that you importing data from must be closed during the import.
Verified to work with SeaMonkey 2.49.5 (WG9s), the installer is here.
