Hi rdcast123, Firefox doesn't have a built-in feature to import saved logins.

You might find a script to do it that runs in the Browser Console, but although I have seen some threads along those lines, I can't recall testing any of them myself.

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web Link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for what you want.

yea, I've knocked it around too. The best offerings is for old versions.

I must say, as important as this issue is, you'd think FF would have it nailed.. smh

So, now I have this csv file from Chrome, which itself is an arcane possess, with the login info I need, how can I read it manually? I know I've done it once before, just can't recall how I did it -.-

Original question cannot be solved due to Firefox not providing the means to import password information form another browser. Workaround was accomplished by manually organizing the Chrome password csv file... far from ideal.

You can use JavaScript in the Browser Console to import login data in JSON format. If you have it in CSV then you need to convert CSV to JSON.

See:
