[Affected versions]:

  • Firefox Nightly 77.0a1 Build ID 20200429215539;

[Affected Platforms]:

  • Linux Ubuntu 18.04;


  • Have at least a pair of credentials saved in latest Chrome (i.e for Facebook)
  • In Firefox set “signon.showAutoCompleteImport” pref to “import”

[Steps to reproduce]:

  1. Open the browser with the profile from prerequisites.
  2. Open in Firefox the site foe which you saved the credentials.
  3. Click on the username field.
  4. The password autocomplete import suggestion is displayed.

[Expected result]:

  • Nothing should be displayed, because importing passwords is not possible while using Linux.

[Actual result]:

  • The Password Import Autocomplete option is displayed, and the import wizard can be triggered.


  • Finalizing the wizard will have no effect, and the import suggestion will be re-displayed.
  • The wizard options are correct - don’t contain password options to be imported.

Seems like bug 1513718 is waiting to be fixed as the import suggestion shows that the data is available although the tricky part might be the password decryption. At least for the experiment, we should be able to target it skipping linux or make it windows only.

If we enable by default, we'll need to make sure to not suggest on Linux or fix bug 1513718.
