Import passwords from Windows Vista to Windows 8
I have upgraded my Windows from Vista to Windows 8. I have saved my password files from Vista on my desktop but cannot figure out how to import my old Firefox password files to the new Firefox. I have already imported my bookmarks but cannot determine how to "import" the password files.
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; rv:18.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/18.0

For the passwords you need these two matching files: key3.db (encryption key) and signons.sqlite
I have those two files saved but cannot figure out how to get them to restore my passwords to Windows 8.
