Title: Backing up your passwords
Post by: Garry on May 30, 2008, 09:56:02 PM
hello I love passwordmaker and what it can makes life so much easier for all the sites that I have to log into. But i am still  having problems. I am about to do a clean install of my OS (ubuntu) and need to back up my passwords. I used the export settings on the file menu which then gives me the option of saving as an RDF or HTML. I choose RDF and then save this file on my memory stick.
after that i set up a guest user account on the system and installed the firefox pswd extension. when I use the import file command to import my backed up password settings, i get the message that it can't import because the file is xml !!Does anybody have an answer as to what I am doing wrong? I am sure it isn't hard but I am a bit frustrated by it all. thanks Garry

I haven't confirmed the bug yet, but I wanted to give you another way to do the import so you can get your passwords back. Copy the passwordmaker.rdf file on your thumdrive to the firefox profile. ( Overwrite the existing passwordmaker.rdf if one is there (there should be if you've installed PasswordMaker and used it at least once). Restart Firefox and everything should be good.
