    I would like to Export or be able to transfer my Auto Filled UserNames
    and Passwords from Firefox to another MAC i have.

    Where would i find the Saved Data for all my 1000 Auto Filled Usernames
    and Passwords.. ??

    Thanks for any advice!

    Sounds Complicated.
    There must be an easier way.
    I'm sure i'm not the first person who has had to do this...

    I used to manually do that kind of thing but now Xmarks is a lifesaver.
    You can sync bookmarks and passwords with any other PC or Mac running Firefox.

    The Xmarks privacy page seems to get after the information you're after.
