how can I transfer user names and passwords from IE to firefox

I have many Favorites saved on IE which I have successfully transferred to Firefox. However, I need to also have the User Names and Passwords for these Favorites transferred as well. How can I do that?

If you want the Usernames and Passwords imported to Firefox from IE, simply go to Bookmarks > Import and Backup > Import Data from Another browser > Select "Microsoft Internet Explorer" > Click "Next" > Check what you want to import > Click "Next".

It should automatically import what you need after that.

I've just tried this. There is no 'Import&Backup' option under Bookmarks. Also, surely such a procedure wouldn't be able to access my Norton Vault? SOS please - I'm desperate to make Firefox my default but I have 78 log-in/passwords!

You need to open the Bookmarks and History Manager (Library) to see the toolbar with that choice.

  • Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks
  • History > Show All History

Hello, cor-el. I now have all my bookmarks - thanks - but the passwords didn't transfer, presumably because they're in the Norton Safe
