Hi,

 

does anyone known how to change the xml file format to import Firefox passwords from the Password exporter plugin?

 

Hope someone does. Otherwise there's a lot of typing ahead ...

 

Cheers,

John

Hi John,

 

Sorry, what are you actually trying to do?  Is this to import passwords into F-Secure Key from Firefox?  If so, Key is supposed to support XML, although, I have to admit, I've not used it myself.

Thanks Simon.

 

What I actually want to know is the structure of the XML file to be imported into Key.

 

For example:

 

<XML header>bla bla bla</XML header.>

 

<item>website 1</item><user>Me-myself-and-I</user><password>secret</password></item>

 

and so on

 

If I know the structure I can adapt the output file from Password Exporter to import in Key.

Oh, I see. Sorry John, no idea on that. I assume the XML file won't open in Notepad or Wordpad for investigation?

As there's no official support offered for Key, hopefully one of our more technical members may be able to help, or perhaps an F-Secure Expert?

Hi John,

 

Currently F-Secure Key supports the following data export formats:

 

  • Password Safe XML export format
  • KeePass 2.x XML export format
  • 1Password 'interchange File' format
  • F-Secure Key's own data export format

Hi Ivan,

So, just to clarify, does that mean Key doesn't support Firefox XML exported data?

Not at this moment. We are adding more supported import file formats to the product in future releases.
