Ok, I found signons.txt, and copied it to the new .mozilla directory,

know about the saved passwords. Any idea on what switch I should flip
in about:config or wherever to get it to realize there is new data in
there?


How about saving some new passwords at some site, checking for where
it's now saving that data, and substituting your old file for the recent
one.

It's perfectly possible the format has changed. This _must_ happen when functionality is extended.



Looks like the format has changed, but the hash used may be combined with that funky xxxxxxxx.default directory everything lands in, which is combined with profiles.ini... what a mess! I suppose there are good reasons to be doing things this way... maybe if I take the old profiles.ini, and the old .default directory name, and plunk them into .mozilla/firefox/, I can get everything back. Apparently, when I fired up firefox 1.5.0.1, _something_ got changed in the profile directory which causes a panic in firefox 1.0.7
