import passwords from file

Veröffentlicht

Want to migrate to firefox. However as there is no longer the ability to import passwords from Chrome and the github app ffpass no longer works with the latest browser releases, I will have to forego the migration as I'm not prepared to manually > 200 password entries. That is unless there is some hidden facility I've missed?

Hi all

Thanks for all the responses, the workaround I finally did was to borrow a mates laptop that had windows, created a new user. Logged into chrome to sync. Downloaded firefox, signed into firefox, imported chrome passwords. Synched. Voila! all passwords available in Manjaroo Firefox.

Then of course deleted all traces on windows laptop and the removed the account.

Hope this helps someone else.

Hello robertjohnfletcher,

You probably already read this article, but just in case :

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/import-bookmarks-google-chrome

Another thing to try :

Type in the address bar about:logins, which will take you to Firefox Lockwise.

In the upper right corner you will see three horizontal dots - click on them and choose "Import Passwords".

Does that work ?

Hi Re: the article I quote "Saved Passwords: (macOS and Windows only)" unquote.

The second option shows the following in the drop down menu: -Preferences -Help -Lockwise for Android -Lockwise for IPhone & IPad

and no there isn't an option under Preferences :(

Thanks for trying though :)

That's weird .....

"My" dropdown shows as first option "Import Passwords" !


Apparantly the article I linked to was no help either  :(

I hope someone else will come to your rescue (fingers crossed).

I should have paid better attention - my apologies.

Would you take a look at this article please :

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/import-data-another-browser

Any good ?

What format does the logins file have ?

It should be possible to import passwords in JSON format using code in the Browser Console. If you have them in another format like CSV or XML then you would have to convert this file to JSON. See:

      • Full Instructions***

I appreciate this question and comments even if it wasn't very clear. I had 300+ current and old passwords typed out on six pages and didn't want to visit every site again. I needed a way to quickly convert my data file (passwords.xlsx) to be used by Chrome. I was able to figure it out so I'm itemizing it for others.

Firefox can import passwords from other browsers but not from files. Chrome can import passwords from .cvs files. So this is a two step process.

Install Chrome and visit a few sites you don't currently have in Firefox to log in and create an initial password data file. Export it to it's generic .cvs file. When you open it you may find that it not only needs site, user name, and password, but also the url of the login page. Thus I had to open up an extra column in my password.xlsx file.

With the password.xlsx file open in a window on the bottom of the screen and any browser open in the top half the next step is tedious, but much faster than logging into every site. Copy the site name (cxw113) into the address line and let your browser find the site. Click on the login link. Copy and paste the derived url from the browser back to the .cvs file.

When you have done a few that are different than ones you already have, save the file. Open Chrome and go to Settings > Passwords. You will see three vertical dots on the level with "Saved Passwords". Left click on the three vertical dots then RIGHT click on "Export passwords" and click on "Inspect". This opens a developers panel on the right and will highlight the code for the button you just pressed. As you scroll up it will highlight the previous code section. Click on the word "hidden". It will become editable. Delete the word and move back to the password panel. Now when you click on the three vertical dots it gives you the choice to "import". Do so and go to the file that you want to import. Even with a different file name than the original it will work. As long as there are no blank or empty cells in the .cvs file Chroome will import them properly. Don't worry. This resets as soon as you close Chrome.

You must now close Chrome. Open Firefox and go to the three bars to the far right on the address bar. Click and go down to "Logins and Passwords". Click on the three horizontal dots in the far upper right and select "Import Passwords". Follow the dialogue for Chrome and Passwords. Check and you'll find the test passwords you did with the first few are now in Firefox.
