Firefox has been acting funny under Windows 10 lately so, I recently saved my bookmarks and logins to files (in anticipation that I may have to uninstall and reinstall firefox.) I read the article that explains that if "import from file" does not appear on the "logins & passwords" "more" menu (three dots) then, it means I have to go to about:config in the address bar and turn the feature back on. I went to about:config only to discover that I do not know the name of the preference that I want to toggle.

Does anyone know the name of that preference?

It is mentioned at the bottom of the article:

Note: If you don't see Import from a File… in the Firefox Lockwise menu, it means the feature is disabled. To enable it, go to the Firefox Configuration Editor (about:config page), find the signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled preference and toggle it to true.
