Summary: Firefox enables users to save the web passwords in the browser to quickly sign in to web services without entering their email address and password manually. So this post will show you how to export Firefox passwords to CSV or JSON.

Mozilla Firefox allowed us to import and export passwords with the help of trusted extensions. But it changed since the release of Firefox 57. In Firefox version 57 and later, Firefox does not provide a way to export or back up saved passwords. Legacy extensions that enabled us to import and export passwords are no longer valid.

There are some workarounds for backing up Firefox passwords, but they are not very straightforward. Besides, users cannot export their passwords to a CSV or JSON file.

Fortunately, since version 79, Firefox will enable users to export the passwords to CSV without the help of any plug-ins or third-party software.
