How to get the passwords for all saved website bookmarks to transfer from safari?

more options

Firefox is now my default and I HAVE been able to transfer all listed website, however when opening the sites none of my passwords have transferred. I have lots of bookmarks and I do not want to input the info for each site all over again. What should I do?

Chosen solution

The passwords are usually stored in some protected area (database) for Mac probably the Mac Keychain. Firefox currently doesn't have Keychain integration and can't import the Safari passwords AFAIK. If you can't export the passwords in Safari then you are probably out of luck to get the Safari passwords in Firefox. Maybe a workaround via Google Chrome is possible.

Yes, it was helpful// I wish this was a consideration prior to Mozilla ending their support of Safari, I have thousands of passwords and users that are now stuck in Safari.
