Hi, To start exporting Firefox Password Data to a file, the "Login data of the Windows User Account" has to be entered (pls. refer to attachment). What is meant by "Windows User Account"? Thanks so much for your help. Hans - presently in Munich, Bavaria, Germany

PS: I'm using the German Version of Firefox - so I translated back to English.

This is about the PIN for Windows Hello to authenticate to unlock the passwords. Entering this PIN can be used to unlock the passwords stored in Firefox if you do not use the Primary Password.
