Can I load XML password-file to FF-Version 57.0.4 ? How ?

Hallo Have installed FF version 57.0.4 yesterday and found no compatible way to load the stored passwords in XML password-export - file. Any solution ? Thanks for your fedback bernd03

Sorry, but Firefox doesn't natively handle a passwords XML file.

There have been extensions in the past that did an export and import of password data to and from an XML (and CSV format) file type, but those Legacy extensions aren't compatible with Firefox 57 Quantum and above.

An API that allows access to Quantum password files doesn't currently exist, and may never come about; so that type of extension is currently possible.

edit The best I can suggest is looking into this program. http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/passwordfox.html Although some Security applications "flag" that program and won't let it run.

Thanks for your quick and solid answer. Your edited proposal I wanted to ask now - to translate my actual XML filee so that I can read and use the stored PW's. Fine , thank you - will try it.
