Firefox 80 - cannot export logins

I cannot export my Firefox Browser (v.80) logins. I follow the instructions, go to about:logins and then the instructions tell me to "Click the Firefox Lockwise menu (three dots), then click Export Logins…" but I have no Firefox Lockwise menu to click. I am using Firefox 80 on a desktop computer running Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon. My hard drive (SSD) is playing up and I need to back up my login data in case I lose my SSD and need to replace it.

Try to find three horizontal dots in top right corner.

Update: I have copied my .mozilla folder from my home folder to copy over logins.json and key3.db files to the home folder of any new installation that I might have to make but I was hoping to use an export/import tool.

Edit: I've just noticed that there is no key3.db file in my mozilla profile but there is a key4.db - is this just the version 80 equivalent of key3.db?

This is the problem - there are none other than the one that is present on all tabs - it has the "Logins and Passwords" menu item but from there, I have no Lockwise menu.
