I successfully transferred my Firefox account to my new computer; however, the Saved Logins did not transfer. All the other information for my account went into the Profiles folder on the new computer. Is there a way to transfer the Saved Logins data? I am writing this from my old computer. Thanks for any help!

Chosen solution

You can copy the logins.json and key3.db files to the profile folder on the other computer.

You can use this button to go to the current Firefox profile folder:

Password Exporter 1.2.1 by Justin Scott (fligtar), Jorge Villalobos Password Exporter {web link} This extension allows you to export your saved passwords and disabled login hosts using XML or CSV files that can be imported later.


In the event that the passwords information is lost, you should record all information in a separate text file somewhere else on your hard drive, or written down. You can easily copy and paste if you need to do so. If you are concerned about someone else looking at that file, you can compress it using a password.

That did it! Thanks for the help. Don't know why those files didn't transfer; but, that was the "key"!
