Export Firefox form history


On windows, it is possible to export form history from formhistory.sqlite in the firefox profile directory. How is this done with the linux version of Firefox? I see other sqlite files in the profile directory, but no formhistory.sqlite.


Thanks

There's supposed to be 'find .mozilla/firefox -iname formhist\*' even though the format may not be Sqlite. Else maybe try the Firefox SQLite manager addon?

FWIW, I have a "formhistory.sqlite" in my profile directory and am using Firefox 3.0.3 with no extensions.

Thanks for the replies. I have sqlite manager installed. Looks like I am upgrading to FF3.
