How can I print out my saved passwords in my Firefox? I do not use Chrome, just Firefox and my laptop. No cellphone.

Hi.

I need to print out my saved passwords. I have no cellphone to access, just my laptop and printer. I only use Firefox and no other browser. If my laptop gets hacked or breaks down, then I need to use someone else's computer to access my passwords in an emergency, and can't access my passwords to do so...so printing them out periodically is the smartest thing I can think of.

Help, anyone? This is pretty important to me. Thank you!

Hi, NuggFrog and FredMcD.

I'm sorry to sound stupid, but I'm very ignorant of the stuff FredMcD posted...don't understand what CSVs (or CVSs as some people write) or JSONs are (to say the least).

I'm guessing since I cannot print them out, then I'm looking to save them to a memory card I have inserted in my laptop.

When I click "Export Logins" and the computer creates a csv file, I'll try to save it to my memory card.

Thank you, both!

Hey Hashachar70! When you go to your Logins & Passwords page (about:logins), in the top right corner there is 3 dots. When you click Export Logins, the computer will save a .csv file, you can save this where ever you need it to be saved. I hope this was helpful! Let me know if you need anything else. NuggFrog

You need to enable import CSV in the Password Manager (about:logins) via the about:config page as this menu item is currently hidden for performance reasons.
