Can we have added ability  to import passwords (and possibly other data) from csv or json files?

Importing data from Firefox works, except for passwords. "Saved passwords failed to import" is the message I receive. Bookmarks and other data pull over successfully.
I suspect the reason for the password import fail is because I am signed into Firefox account and the passwords are saved under "Lockwise".
Using a 3rd party tool, I was able to export app 100 of my saved Firefox passwords to csv and json formats.
Whether by file import, or direct import, I really need to import my Firefox saved passwords into Edge.

 

If it matters, I'm on MacOS Mojave, latest Firefox and Edge Version 79.0.309.18 (Official build) Beta (64-bit).

I don't know why they removed this but import/export passwords were available in Edge insider browser.

around 1-2 months ago Import got removed and now we can only export passwords.

@HotCakeX yes!
And this morning when I did import from Firefox, no error message.
Well, this is on my windows machine; I can't wait to try it on my mac tonight.

Hopefully it will be fine too:)

It was not fine. I tried Edge Beta and downloaded latest Dev, and neither will import Firefox passwords on Mac.

Same error message as initial post.
