Hello,

I've been using Firefox almost since its beginnings. I use it for browsing, keeping my bookmarks and storing my passwords. Regularly, I used to make a backup with the ad-on Password exporter. But now it doesn't work with Firefox Quantum.

Is there any other add-on that I can use for the same purpose?
Is there any other SIMPLE*** method to make a back up of my passwords in an easy way?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Regards from Spain /EU

*** = No scripts, no screeshots, not having to be copying key4.db y logins.json files, etc. Only Export-->Name-->Save

I know of no addon that will backup the official password store. This will view them or export them to CSV (no way to import). https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/passwordfox.html
If you use a password saving utility or extension, perhaps some of those have a way to import / export their own password storage. Firefox is going to have a lockwise password feature, perhaps backup / restore will be a feature of it.
It is possible to automate full profile backup: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2973875&start=525

This external utility has the ability to export and import passwords. https://github.com/louisabraham/ffpass However, considering the difficulty of use, I would do full profile backup instead.
