Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:15.0) Gecko/20120709 Firefox/15.0a2
Build ID: 20120709042008

Steps to reproduce:


 1)   Start a browser other than Firefox.
 2)   Go to Bugzilla, login and save password
 3)   Bookmark Bugzilla and make it your home page
 4)   Browse to Google and do a search for "Mozilla Firefox"
 5)   Bookmark Google
 6)   Close the browser

then...
Import your existing browser settings

  1)  Start Firefox with a new profile.
  2)  Select Bookmarks-> Show all bookmarks
  3)  Click on "Import and Back" up and select "import data from another browser"
  4)  Select the browser you ran in the first set of test steps.
  5)  Check all the checkboxes over the various importing options.
  6)  Click Next and then Finish after migration is complete


Actual results:

1) The password stored in safari was not found under Aurora Tools-> Options -> Security -> Saved Passwords
2) The home page of safari never became the homepage of Mozilla . They were different


Expected results:

These were the expected results: 

   1) Verify Browsing History shows up in the "History" menu and the "History" sidebar.
   2) Verify Favorites/Bookmarks show up in the "Bookmarks" menu.
   3) Verify Saved Form History works by going to Google. Start typing the same search terms as you did in your existing browser (Moz...). The autofill pulldown menu should show your original search terms (Mozilla Firefox).
   4) Verify Saved Passwords by going to Preferences (Options) | Privacy | Saved Passwords. Click on the "View Saved Passwords..." button and confirm that your Bugzilla username and password have been migrated. Go to Bugzilla and login.
   5) Verify Cookies by going to Preferences (Options) | Privacy | Cookies. Click on the "Stored Cookies" button and confirm that your cookies from Bugzilla and Google have been migrated.
   6) Confirm that your homepage is also now your Firefox homepage by clicking on the Home icon.

Bug 300161 and bug 326698 are two old wontfixes for both these issues, but not sure what the right behavior should be with the new Safari profile implementation (bug 710259).

Mano or mak, are these old wontfixes still valid with the new Profile Migrator?
Component: Untriaged → Migration
the passwords wontfix may stand based on the fact "password manager should use the system API rather than re-inventing its own", though seeing how old that bug is and the fact that's not been implemented yet, we may re-evaluate the decision.

Regarding the homepage, there is no reasoning around the wontfix, so I'm not sure which was the original reason (maybe the idea was just to avoid importing the default safari homepage that may be more about Apple than about the user?). Though the current migrator should be doing the homepage import, thus looks like that code is broken.

Is this still relevant to be looked at for Safari on Windows?

> Is this still relevant to be looked at for Safari on Windows?

We're using this bug for import from OS X now (see the dependency which I added when I didn't realize this was originally filed for Windows).
OS: Windows 7 → Mac OS X
Hardware: x86 → All
Homepage import only occurs for official builds (aka. Beta/Release) so this was never supposed to work. If you disagree with this, we have bug 354967.

Password import is not being investigated in bug 1018667.
