Also there is the Password Exporter extension.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/password-exporter/

It allows you to export and import your saved passwords and disabled login hosts from Password Manager.

Two ways to do that

  • Profile Backup
  • Firefox Sync

Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data


Firefox Sync - Take your bookmarks, tabs and personal information with you

You can copy the two files signons.sqlite and key3.db (encryption key) from the profile folder of the desktop computer to the profile folder of the laptop.

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