I cant find the files to back up my passwords in Windows 10; they are not in the profile folder

Posted

I am trying to backup my password files ( key4.db and logins.json )

I am looking in the profile folder, and I have selected "show hidden files". Firefox is closed when I do this.

Nothing. Please help!

.... Related Rant - a priority of the devs should make a native import/export function to do this...

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
