I have a large number of saved passwords that i would like to sort into alphabetical order. At the moment, for example, at the top of the list are yourhealthportal.com.au b2c.csair.com and singpet.com. n the Bookmarks menu it is possible to drag and drop items to a different position in the list. Can something like this be done with passwords?

Chosen solution

Auto-Sort Bookmarks

1. Export passwords/IDs. Make two copies. (one for backup)

2. Delete all passwords.

3. Open one of the copies in a TEXT EDITOR that allows you to sort.

4. Highlight all lines that start with "entry host"

5. Sort the lines.

6. Import back in

This will be a temporary fix of sorts as firefox sorts passwords based on usage frequency. Alternatively you might consider Keepass + Passifox

The Saved Passwords window dialog in Options is sorted alphabetically by the Site, and can be displayed in ascending order (the default) or descending order via the toggle caret in the "Site" header.

There are three basic "sort" groupings.

First is the protocol ordering:
chrome:// - for username / password for "services" inside Firefox
ftp://
http://
https://

Then the sub-domain:
quality. mozilla. org
support-stage-new.mozilla. org
support-stage.mozilla. org
support.mozilla. org

Followed by the TLD (top level domain):
.com
.net
.org

Thank you MRSONORD. This solution suits my needs even if it is temporary and after adding new passwords the list has to be resorted.
