Can't import Passwords/History/etc. to Safari because of a "Main password"?
I'm trying to use Safari's built-in import function to get all my passwords, history and bookmarks from Firefox into Safari.
But once I try to do that, Safari asks me to enter my Firefox main password. Both my Mac password and my Firefox master password don't work (and obviously have a different name, I tried them nevertheless). So what's this main password? I haven't entered a Firefox password or something but the Master password. And even with disabling the master password this didn't work.
Btw: Maybe it's not exactly called "Firefox main password" in English. I'm from Germany and it says "Firefox-Hauptpasswort".
I'm running macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 on a MacBook Pro Touch Bar 13".

If you use Firefox 58 then key4.db (SQLite) is used instead of key3.db used previously for the encryption key and Safari may not know about this format change. If that is the case then you probably wont' be able to import the passwords, but history shouldn't be a problem.
