    Obviously a little late, but, whatever....

    Safari's keychains can be accessed via Apps>Utilities>Keychain Access

    The actual files, as in the ".keychain" files are found ~/Library/Keychains.

    Are they compatible with Firefox? Probably not.

    How can I make them compatible? That's what I'm trying to find out. Keep me filled in if you come across any.


    P.S. There actually is a utility that lets you do so, but it costs some $30-40 dollars. No way...

    I use FoxMarks to sync not only my bookmarks, but also my Firefox passwords.

    They have a version for Firefox, Safari and IE (yuk). I use it on my Mac and Windows systems so no matter where I am, my Firefox has my stuff.

    Foxmarks seems pretty cool,
    but that seems very dangerous to store your entire
    password library on somebody else's server !

    God knows where your Bank Passwords will end up..!

    So can you just move the .keychain file from one Mac to the /Library/Keychains on another Mac and have all your Safari passwords when you restart?
