Problems with saved passwords missing

Posted

I am running Firefox 18.0 on a Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5. Recently, I tried to export my saved logins/passwords to KeyChain Access. I went to Security under Firefox. Even though I did not check "Obfuscate Passwords", it did so. It gave me a now useless XML file. I tried to import them to Keychain but they did not upload. When I went to look at "View Saved Passwords", none were listed. Oddly, though, when I go to websites that require saved logins, they are still available. When I tried to reimport the saved passwords in the XML file, I got the following message: "Import Complete - 0/212" followed by "Saved logins usually fail to import when the saved login already exists in the Password Manager." Additionally, when I went to "Manage Passwords", it takes me to Keychain Access, where nothing is listed. Any ideas? Thank you!

The problem is that supposedly the passwords have already been exported. However, the list doesn't actually show the passwords. This is what I get.
