I am having an issue importing my passwords from Chrome. I am using version 121.0.1 (64-bit). I have tried the import from another browser, it doesn't work. I have saved the passwords as an CSV file and all I am getting is " Error: Missing field". I have tried to follow some fixes for this issue. When I try and manually go through and create a saved login all I get is an error and I would be asked to input an primary password even though I never created one. I tried to create one and it errors out and just says "Unable to change Primary Password." I have signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled = true signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled = true

security.allow_eval_in_parent_process = true

The other issue I'm having and its inconsistent is pulling tabs to create an new window. Sometimes it doesn't work and other others it does. I have verified that browser.tabs.allowTabDetach

If there are problems with importing the CSV file, create a new login via the plus icon in the Password Manager (about:logins) and export the logins to a CSV file to get an example of the format of the CSV file.

In case of issues with importing the CSV file, check the header line and make sure you have at least the "url" and "username" and "password" columns as those are mandatory.

Drag and drop tabs over Firefox windows to ensure a window can be created. Dropping over other applications is not guaranteed to work.

I have created the CSV multiple times from google chrome. The csv has them listed as "name,url,username,password,note". I just deleted the old CSV and created a new one and still getting the same error.

Try to enclose each of the items in the header line in double quotes.

  • "name","url","username","password","note"
