If I manually save the bookmarks, and place them on a different computer, are my login passwords for those bookmarks also going to be transfered?

Hi guys! Hope you're doing great!

I want to give some very important bookmarks to a colleague of mine, but for most of them I have passwords saved in Firefox 34.0 (Linux 14.0.4 LTS).

I am worried that giving her the bookmarks that I have downloaded on my PC from the Import/Export Bookmarks option, will also give her the login passwords for them.

Is this going to happen or it's ok to send her the needed bookmarks? I do not have another PC on which I can test that at the moment.

I searched through these recommended articles: - Can I restore my bookmarks if they were saved to the same profile on a different computer? - why does firefox corrupt my bookmarks every time I load it on a different computer? - How can I move all my bookmarks from different Firefox profiles into one area to organize them and then place them into the different Firefox profiles? - Where are my logins stored? - Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer

Thank you very much!

Passwords are stored in the password files (encrypted). Bookmarks are stored in the bookmarks file.

These can't get your data back, but will help in the future.

These add-ons can be a great help by backing up and restoring Firefox

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) {web link} FEBE allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions, history, passwords, and more. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up -- It will actually rebuild your saved files individually into installable .xpi files. It will also make backup of files that you choose.
