5) You will receive a message prompting you to confirm that you would like to export. Click the red "Export..." button.
6) The "Save As" dialogue will appear. Name the CSV file and choose its location. Keep careful note of where you save the file, as you will need to access it in order to import your data.
Once you have finished exporting the CSV from Firefox, click this link to view a tutorial on how to import your passwords from your exported CSV file.
