Importing Password CSV File Exported From FireFox Doesn't Work
Windows 10 system, current Firefox browser version. I exported the passwords from the latest version of Firefox into a CSV file and put it on an external hard drive. I plugged that hard drive into a different system, installed Firefox on that system, enabled importing from a file in Firefox, and selected the file to import. The file browser went away, and nothing changed. No passwords were imported. Tried restarting Firefox and tried again to no avail.
The file seems to be readable, so it's not a disk error.
How can I import these passwords?

You could copy the files logins.json and key4.db from your old profile to the new one.
You can set signon.debug = true on the about:config page. You can start the import and check the Browser Console for login related messages. You can clear the messages beforehand and only enable Errors and Warnings, hidden items may have an item count appended. Do not forget to reset signon.debug to false after you are done testing.
