    Firefox passwords

    Hello people,

    I let firefox remember my passwords for a long time; it was way too much for me to manage them; My life is already complicated, passwords are a further hassle I don't want to deal with.

    So now my firefox in windows is holding all my passwords. How do I import them inside the Ubuntu firefox ?

    I remembered some of them, but not all and some of them are quite important !

    So I have to reboot Windows every time just to login in some of my important web sites.

    Thanks for any help
    Bye

    In Firefox 3 you can just go to Preferences, Security and click Show passwords. You can write them down from there, of make a screenshot. Should be the same with Firefox 2.

    Write them down and keep them in a safe location. So you would always be able to find them, even when your computer crashes.

    @Olav,

    Thank you very much.

    I was about to suggest this add-on:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/462

    But your method is definitely more straightforward, which I will also keep in mind for future use.

    Cheers.

    You may also want to consider KeePassX which is a nice little password management utility in the repositories. It is also good for sharing across multiple platforms.
