Like other major web browsers out there for Windows operating system, Mozilla Firefox browser also allows you to save your web passwords in the browser so that you can quickly sign in to web services without having to manually enter your email address and password.
Mozilla Firefox allowed us to export and import passwords with the help of trusted extensions. This changed with the release of Firefox 57. In Firefox 57 and later versions (even the latest v64), doesn’t offer a way to backup or export saved passwords. Legacy extensions that allowed us to export and import passwords no longer work as well.
While there are workarounds out there to backup Firefox passwords, they are not very straight-forward. Besides that, you cannot export passwords to a CSV or JSON file.
We recently came across a small tool called FF Password Exporter. The FF Password Exporter program is a free program for both Windows and macOS to help users export Firefox passwords to either CSV or JSON file.
After downloading and running FF Password Exporter on your Windows PC, it will select the default Firefox profile. If you have more than one, you need to select your Firefox profile from where you would like to export passwords. If you are not sure about the profile location, refer to our Firefox profile location in Windows guide to know the exact location.
Once you select a profile, you will need to enter the master password, if you have set one.
Finally, click on Export Passwords button, select a location to save the password file, select either CSV or JSON as the file format and then click the Save button. We recommend you to save the CSV or JSON file containing your Firefox passwords in a safe location. The best way would be to password protect the file by creating a ZIP file. Refer to our how to create a password protected ZIP file in Windows 10/8/7 guide for step-by-step directions.
The only drawback of this program is that it doesn’t let you import passwords into Firefox profiles. An option to import passwords from CSV or JSON files would have made this program even more beneficial.
Nevertheless, it’s a handy program to export Firefox password to CSV or JSON file. Visit the given below link to download the latest version of FF Password Exporter utility.
