Installed FF 79 en-US for Linux Mint from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/rel ... _64/en-US/ and did the same for windows 10 from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/rel ... n64/en-US/.

Waited for this release for months, because it promised the export & import of the Lockwise data. Exporting to a .csv file works well in both versions, but they omitted the import option for .csv files. Import is available only from the three Microsoft browsers. No Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi, etc.

Is it possible to overcome this from within Firefox?

Also considering using KeePassCX, which I already installed in both OS, but it acts only as a ready to use up to date backup. I have security concerns

From external to FF, eh, before you get old & grey, perhaps ;-).

In Firefox 80 you can enable the CSV import feature by toggling this pref on the about:config page.
signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled => true

If you have a CSV file with the proper formatting generated by other password managers then it shouldn't be a problem to import this CSV file in Lockwise, only directly importing is an issue.

@dickvl, Thanks ^3. Will use the Lockwise export layout when it becomes available.

Export in Lockwise should be available in Firefox 79 via the three dot menu on about:logins, only import has been delayed.

Thanks for the info. Installed FF80 beta 6 and import & export works fine.
