Export Google Chrome/Chromium Passwords - Import In Firefox



Instructions for Linux (only):
Download ChromeCSV for Linux (there is a Windows version). Set as executable (permissions), exit Chromium/Chrome, run terminal:
$ chromium --password-store=basic
(Google Chrome: $ google-chrome --password-store=basic)

Give time to sync, exit Chromium, run terminal in ChromeCSV folder:
$ ./chromecsv ~/.config/chromium/
(Google Chrome: $ ./chromecsv ~/.config/google-chrome/)

ChromeCSV will export file passwords.csv to same folder it is.

Open CSV file in text editor, add first line:
# Generated by Password Exporter; Export format 1.0.4; Encrypted: false

Next, make sure CSV headers are something like this (quotation marks included):
"hostname","username","password"
Any other headers expendable. Save CSV file. (My file is in UTF8 BOM)

Run Firefox, install addon 'Password Exporter'
Next, go to Preferences > Security>  Import/Export Passwords

Click 'Import Passwords' and select CSV file. Click Open. It will import passwords, skip duplicates.
