Importing Passwords Firefox 105.0.1

I have Firefox 105.0.1 on Windows 10 Pro and I cannot import Logins and Passwords from a file. Even with the signon property to TRUE, the passwords just don't populate. Is there something else I should be doing, or is there a fix for this. I have quite a few users to migrate and creating Firefox accounts to sync passwords is not preferable with users who need a lot of hand-holding. Thanks!

Unfortunately is importing logins from a CSV file still broken in 105 (security issue with unsafe eval) as this requires a rewrite of that CSV login code. Possible workarounds are importing the CSV file in Google Chrome and use import data from GC in Firefox.

If you have access to a profile that still all logins then you can possibly copy logins.json and key4.db from that profile to the profiles from other devices. You would lose current logins though, so export the current logins to CSF.

This has worked for some users: You can temporarily enable eval in the main process by setting security.allow_eval_in_parent_process to true. Import the file you need and return the pref to false afterwards.
