If I want to remove obsolete passwords I want a list of everything in the password security file. How do I do it?

Chosen solution

Hi chicoharv, I don't think right-click is part of the process here. Maybe you were using an add-ons to capture web pages using a right-click, but the dialog showing your logins details is not a regular web page. Try the methods I described in my earlier reply.

Firefox does not have a feature to print or export your saved logins. You can view them interactively through the Options page. Either:

  • "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Options
  • type or paste about:preferences in the address bar and press Enter

In the left column, click Security. Then on the right side, click Saved Logins to view/delete passwords you've saved.


There also are some add-ons to work with saved logins, but I haven't tried any of them myself. You can search here: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/

Password Exporter {web link} This extension allows you to export your saved passwords and disabled login hosts using XML or CSV files that can be imported later.

I added the extension but I still can't initiate a Printscreen in paint or anywhere else. I just want a paper copy of my passwords.How can I find them on my computer besides using the browser?

Hi chicoharv, on Windows, you can capture the contents of the screen to the clipboard by pressing the Print Screen key on the keyboard. Then you can paste that into Paint.

Then you can print from Paint to a piece of actual paper, but you probably will need to edit the image a bit to make it come out a useful size.

You also want to learn about the Windows 10 Snipping Tool, to select just the part of the screen you care about capturing. See:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13776/windows-use-snipping-tool-to-capture-screenshots

Edit: about finding your passwords without using Firefox, they are encrypted (scrambled) so finding that file won't really help you.

I can't get it to printscreen on the passwords, I right click and no actions get highlighted. It used to work in old firefox and older windows but not in windows ten.

Open the Add-ons Manager. Find the add-on and click the Options button. When the window pops up, look for the Export Passwords near the top and press it. A 'save file' window will come up. A file name ending with XML. Select the directory you want the file in and press Save.

This file can be opened in a Word program.
