How can I move passwords from one profile to another and from Mozilla/Netscape to Phoenix?

Yes and no. In a round about way you can move the password file. The file extension is .s and the filename is random.

None of this is recommended but has worked ok for me. If you DO do this, do not file any bugs unless you have created a brand new profile/installation and verified that the buy still exsits. That being said, I do this.

1. Create the new profile.
2. Save a password using the new profile. This step will create the password file in the new profile.
3. Close Phoenix.
4. Copy the password file from the old profile and rename it to the name given to the password file in the new profile.
5. Start Phoenix and you should be all set.

With bookmarks, I would export from the old profile and import into the new.
