On mac i am trying to move to Firefox from Google Chrome. I import data from chrome but passwords are not included in the list. What should i do to transfer passwords to firefox?

Chosen solution

When finally will the normally working function of importing passwords from Chrome or google account appear in FireFox ??? The inability to transfer hundreds of passwords - only this has been holding me back for many months from switching to FireFox

If you can convert the CSV backup to JSON then you can import this JSON file in Firefox.

Bug 1423714 Import logins from Chrome on OS X

That Bug was reported to be fixed in Firefox 71.0 - 3 months ago.

Are you using Firefox 71 on MacOSX? Or perhaps your issue is different than was discussed in this support thread?

I have Firefox 71.0, but I still can’t import passwords from either the browser, Google account, or ccv file. Linux Mint 19 Computer OS

I think that importing passwords from Google Chrome is only supported on Windows and not on Mac and Linux. You can import passwords from a JSON file via the Browser Console with a few lines of code, but that requires that you can export the logins in the other browser to a JSON file.
