How do I export cookies and passwords from Firefox into an HTML file?


I have a proprietary website that I need to use at work, that is no longer compatible with the new Firefox as of today, 2/3/12. Because it is critical to my business, I need to change from FF to IE (which I'm not thrilled about). I was able to save my FF bookmarks to an HTML file, however none of my cookies or passwords were saved. Is there a way to do that so that I can import into IE?

You can use the Password Exporter extension to export and backup the Firefox passwords, but you won't be able to import the file in IE.
