How do I copy my saved passwords and logins in windows 10

You can possibly export the logins to CSV and import this CSV file in another profile (device).

See the note at the bottom of this article about how to enable import CSV in Lockwise via the about:config page.


You can also copy logins.json and key4.db from one profile to another profile to transfer the logins.

You can copy certain files with Firefox closed to the current profile folder to transfer or recover personal data. Note that best is to avoid copying a full profile folder.

You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page (Root directory).
